Scottish Indy Ref 2: The Bloodening


#1

Just making this thread in case Sturgeon’s big speech at the mo is going to announce a new ref, then soak up the sweet, sweet replies.


#2

If get another chance scotland, don’t get it wrong this time


#3

#4

Would probably move to Scotland if they go tbf.


#5

you’re coming up anyway for the meat :wink:


#6

Is she going to do it? This is tense!


#7

Yep, it’s on.


#8

it’s happening


#9

“I will now take the steps necessary to make sure Scotland will have a choice between a hard Brexit and independence”


#10

Don’t worry guys, this thread is available for all your #indyref2 needs.


#11

What do we reckon then - September 2019?


#12

Autumn 2018 according to my sources.


#13

It’s no kind of choice is it. I’m sad that we won’t get the chance to work out a federal structure for the UK that would benefit everyone but I really do hope Scotland get away this time, even if it screws those of us left behind.


#14

May will allow Scotland to have IndyRef2 (ASSUMING there’s a majority in Holyrood for it) before the end of the Article 50 negotiations? Cannot see that happening.


#15

Sometime between Autumn ´18 & spring ´19 I reckon


#16

I’m just passing on what I hear.


#17

As I understand it, there’s nothing to stop Holyrood holding a referendum whenever they like. There’s also nothing to force Westminster to honour the result of any such referendum either.

Could get quite messy.


#18

Oh it’ll get messy whatever. Very messy.

Scotland v rUK II will be a fascinating duel. Economic case for independence seems significantly weaker - cultural/political case much stronger. WHO WINS?


#19

can imagine the uk government deciding to ignore a referendum result going over really well


#20

Sturgeon is saying that Scotland has to have their IndyRefII when they know the terms of the Brexit deal (if there is one) so that their choices/alternatives are clear
