Just a quick note to let you know that I'm quoted (along with Green activist Laura Moodie and Professor James Mitchell) in Alasdair Soussi's latest article for Al Jazeera on the impact of Boris Johnson's troubles on the prospects for Scottish independence. You can read the article HERE.
Before anyone bites my head off about what I said in my own quotes, although it may look like I was agreeing with Professor Mitchell that a Labour comeback is underway and will undermine independence support, actually the reverse is true. The point I was making is that we've now reached the stage where Johnson is so unpopular in England that it may be better for us in the long run if he's replaced - as he probably will be. If, for example, Rishi Sunak becomes Prime Minister, he may be popular enough in England that the likelihood of a Labour government after 2024 will dramatically recede, meaning Scotland will not go down the blind alley of holding off from doing anything about independence just on the 0.0001% chance that Keir Starmer might deliver Devo More or federalism some time this decade. The choice for the public would still be a straight one between Tory rule and independence.
