'Why it is correct to refer to our monarch as Elizabeth II, even north of the Border'

Maybe you should tell the south of the border this when they call James the VI and James the VII. James the 1st and James the 2nd. 👍 There's a good lad.

 

Oh and the can insist she be called Elizabeth 2 in Scotland all they want, but she's not and never will be. Fact!

Watching the scuffle this morning how embarrassing 😅 we really are far behind others in how to conduct parliament 🤪 we are so out of touch with the modern world it's scary. Even then is all this what democracy stands for, doesn't seem like it to me

Kwasi Kwarteng on the Andrew Neil Show, sailing a bit close to the wind.

He said people up and down the country are doubting if judges are impartial, and when pressed said he personally knows judges are impartial, but we have to include the point of view that judges are not impartial and biased, in the conversation.

So. 

17 days until 31st October. 

 

We haven't had a General Election b4 it. 

I have not encountered this level of uncertainty in UK politics before. Nobody knows what will happen. Fascinating, scary and other things.

 

It's certainly exciting.

After that we'll know where we stand.

If there is a successful Independence vote. Then after the negotiations, there should be a people's vote to see if the Scottish people actually want independence.

 

Also it should be a Leave/Remain in the UK question. Not Yes/No like last time.

We're already independent it's the powers of a state we need to self govern.

Why? and Why?

 

If there's a second vote on the EU, then fine, bring it on. But the question debate is silly. How thick are Unionists, that the don't know what yes and no means.

A question like that would give at least 5pts to the No side. Boris should insist on having that as the question.

Does Scotland want to leave the union with England/UK/Great Britain.

Leave or remain

Yes or no

 

5% extra, you'll need it. Next time will be a landslide for the Independence of Scotland. The union has nothing left to scare or bribe folk with. Absolutely nothing!

Although a subset of countries the UK is independent, as much as France, Netherlands, Germany and all the other EU countries, just as America is and the vast majority of the  Commonwealth countries.

 

Scotland isn't. 

 

The questions are therefore completely different.

 

What you could (well you couldn't) have post independence is to be part of a new union with the UK, but on completely different terms - full veto, a portion of taxes going to a central fund to support, improve the UK infrastructure and more socially fair legislation.

 

Might even be able to keep our cucumbers and bananas bent and retain the absolutely vile prawn cocktail crisps.

The "Federal UK" boat has sailed long ago, hit an iceberg and sunk with all hands.

 

It's far, far too late for constitutional reform and the dissolution of the Union is only a matter of time.

What!, no mention of the tank commander and her two jobs. An MSP working as a  senior adviser(£50,000 for 24 hours work) for a lobbying business. No conflict of interest, no none at all.

Rory Stewart made a complete tit of himself earlier this week.

Went on a wee walk about on the streets of London with a camera crew in tow, looking to press the flesh with some plebs.

Ran into three black guys, who told him that they have nothing to do with UK politics and that they had no interest in what he said.

Rory thought this was thrilling and took to twitter bragging about having words with "Three minor gangsters" and how the youth of Britain is disconnected from politics.

 

Turns out that the guys he spoke to are actually an Irish rap group.

That's why they had no interest in him or in UK politics.

They're also not London gangsters.

 

Rory boy racially profiling any black youth as a gangster.

And mistaking different nationality for political apathy.

John Mann, a Leave voting Labour MP, has been appointed as Steward and Bailiff of the Chiltern Hounds, an ancient and archaic process which means he's not an MP anymore.

 

He's joining the Lords as an independent advisor on Antisemitism.

Will the UK leave the EU without an agreement.

Are you feeling fear at all.

What will happen during this prorogation, like party conferences. As if international breaks weren't bad enough already. 

 

8 weeks from now, is 1st November 2019. And we will probably know what happened. 

 

Yes, but not b4 31st Oct.

Not so far.

Still am.

A lot of things happened. 

 

8 weeks is a long time in politics. And we probably know what happened.
