Tories in a state of confusion

PM in referendum challenge to SNP I found was a headline on yesterday's BBC News Scotland online page.

Well the Tories in Scotland have said they would not support the Independence Referendum Bill.

In response to the PM's call, the SNP's Alasdair Allan said: "The confusion between David Cameron and (Scottish Tory leader) Annabel Goldie continues. Do they even talk to each other?

"The truth is the Tories - like all the London parties - have consistently refused to support the people of Scotland's right to choose."

Their Scottish wing and London partners are in a state of confusion about where each of them stand on fundamental issues.

And so I still believe the SNP should of put the legislation to the Scottish Parliament just before the Scottish elections in May 2011. In my mind the SNP have missed a golden opportunity to expose the hypocrisy of the unionists.

Anyway I am not going to cry in my beer but continue my support for the SNP as a member of the party.

Constitutional change is much needed for Scotland especially as we will feel the pressure with the cut public services from Westminster more than the rest of the disunited kingdom.

The London based parties can bleat all they like, the arguments we nationalists present for independence will not go away in bankrupt Britain.
