I'm all for complete Independence and a vote a.s.a.p.
But if we end up with this,"glorified council", for another term with increased powers then those powers
should be increased as much as possible. I like Meekan's idea of the "double poll" and the way Hughie has
set out the example. Have to agree with Morag 100%, no vote for ex-pat's, they don't have to live with the
outcome. Anyway, they were the wise one's, they had the foresight to get out of here. Well put, Morag.
Although I am pro Independence and always have been, I also have one or two concerns regarding wee Eck
and the SNP. I will always vote for the SNP until we get Independence as I see them as the only party
capable of delivering it but, on achieving Independence, I will then see what's on offer before deciding who
will get my votes. The SNP' approach to Crime & Punishment is far to lenient and their "policy" of wanting
to retain the monarchy, as head of state, does not sit with me being a republican.
Plus, It is a fact, you do not have a TRUE democracy if you have a unelected head of state.
I think wee Eck is after a knighthood ?????
