THE NEW Tory leader in Scotland says she is in favour of plans for Westminster to seize control of the timing of the independence referendum.
Asked yesterday if Prime Minister David Cameron should press ahead with legislation to hold the referendum rather than wait for the SNP government to do so, she replied: “If it was required.”The First Minister has said he intends to wait until the latter half of the current Scottish Parliament before asking Scots whether they want to leave the UK. But, in one of her first announcements as the Scottish leader, Davidson yesterday acknowledged that discussions were ongoing about forcing the referendum to be held earlier.
So there we have it then. Despite, the SNP gaining a majority of seats in the Scottish Parliament, a victory that had been engineered by the Unionists not to be able to happen, a small minority political party in Scotland with practically no support, funded and managed from London, is going to tell the Scottish Government when they must bring forward plans for an independence referendum.
Despite the fact that it stated clearly in the SNP manifesto that they would bring forward a vote in the latter part of their Government, once the people of Scotland had a chance to assess how they had governed. The people of Scotland voted in the SNP, based on that manifesto. How different, is that from the Merkozy two's insistence that the Greek PM must resign before any financial help would be given?
It seems all around us, the bastions of international Governance are tightening their grasp on the democracies of the smaller countries and that is why I believe that when we do become independent, as we will, that we stay out of the EU, along the principles of Norway, the only other oil producer in Europe. They need us more than we need them. No point in jumping out of the pan into the fire!
