“Where do we need to retain a UK-wide approach? And where can power returning from Brussels be transferred direct to the Scottish Parliament and other devolved institutions?” – David Mundell
Wrong question! The essential question is, not what the arrangements are, but who decides what the arrangements are.
Only the people of Scotland have the rightful authority to determine the powers of their Parliament. The Parliament which they elect. The only Parliament which has true democratic legitimacy.
It is simply not sustainable that the Scottish Parliament can be overruled by a cabal of British politicians who have been rejected by the people of Scotland. That situation cannot be maintained by normal democratic political means. The British state must, therefore, turn to increasingly undemocratic and anti-democratic measures as it strives to preserve its structures of power, privilege and patronage.
That being the case, the next pertinent question must ask to what extent Unionists in Scotland are prepared to see democracy eroded. Where do they draw the line? When do they decide enough is enough? Is there a point at which they feel obliged to put principle before ideology? Or is it truly a case of ‘The Union At Any Cost!’?Views: 3766
