    I believe that the Good Friday Agreement suggest that no permission must be granted to have a referendum in NI.

    The Edinburgh Agreement however...

    The one good thing with this entire mess is that the world now can see just how destructive nationalists and anti-globalists are when they take over politics. Should hopefully be a wake-up call to voters everywhere and end the recent successes of populist demagogues in so many countries. One hopes.

    The prize of a hard brexit is well worth the price of a little inconvenience.

    The SNP spent years carefully crafting their optimistic outlook on political change. "dinnie worry about independence lad, we have oil and all the Runrig C90s a fledgling nation could ever want".

    Now it is daily Sturgeon in full pestilence mode, oblivious that she is destroying all that hard work.

    The SNP spent years preparing a white paper before the referendum. Well written and easy to understand. People voted no.
    The Tories used a fag packet in 5 minutes by comparison. People voted yes.
