I agree, it is unlikely that the mixing of the Holyrood election with constitutional change is a no go. The election is about Governance, any issue around constitutional change needs a referendum. We can change governments every 4 years, Constitutional change is in most cases seen as permanent.
You're agreeing with an opinion I don't hold! Self-evidently, if a referendum is blocked we're going to have to use a scheduled election to gain a mandate for independence - the only question is how soon we make that jump. I think you might be surprised by the poll results tonight.
It makes sense for those trying to hurt the SNP votes-wise to also demand a vote for the SNP to be for/against indy instead of holding a referendum.
