    The Second Scottish Referendum 3: If At First You Don't Secede

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...e-yes-movement

    The SNP appears to be facing an increasingly vocal drive to make a move on attempting a second push at a second independence referendum.

    This will eventually be one of the cornerstones to the undoing the SNP's dominance in Scotland.

    It was a once in a life time vote as I remember they billed it. I'm not dead yet. I can't be arsed to go through all that friction between people in the yes/no camps in Scotland again, so they can **** right off.

    Sorry to point this out, but not voting might be worse.

    It's pretty much like when Sturgeon messed up by pushing for it a year or so ago at the General Election, they're massively misreading the public and assuming constant grumbling about Brexit equates to a heavy thirst for Independence. If anything it strengthens the resolve to hold off and see what happens than effectively throw a Brexit on top of a Brexit. I doubt the public has much thirst for a referendum on any subject at the moment.

    This is why I don't like public referendums on individual issues like this. You don't just get to keep asking the question until you get the result you want. Countries and international alliances can't be run that way. Stability is sometimes better than change, even if the status quo isn't ideal.

    The Scottish should have another referendum, but in 30 years or so. Not now.

    There's not even the basis to argue in favour of one, it's the failing of the SNP to properly handle the fallout of losing the last referendum
