Have you noticed the step-change in independence campaigning from the SNP? The public meetings, the street stalls, the constant buzz about imminent referendum legislation? Nope, me neither, but we know it must be going on because a referendum is DEFINITELY HAPPENING NEXT YEAR.
Associated Press interview with Nicola Sturgeon, 17th May 2022:
AP interviewer: "Is the plan for Scotland to still hold a referendum on independence next year?"
Nicola Sturgeon: "Yes. I was re-elected as First Minister round about this time last year, and was re-elected on a very firm mandate to offer people in Scotland that choice."
As every good Catholic knows, it's important to renew your Vows periodically, so it's great to hear such an unambiguous and emphatic reaffirmation of the SNP-Green government's #2023ReferendumGuarantee. It's ON, folks. This calls for an update of the Scot Goes Pop #Referendum2023 Countdown Clock...
There are just 232 days until the earliest possible date for #Referendum2023 (5th January)
There are just 582 days until the last possible date for #Referendum2023 (21st December)(Note: the Countdown Clock calculations assume that tradition will be maintained by holding #Referendum2023 on a Thursday, and that it will be before Christmas.)
