The day it all changed

The fate of the Scottish Parliament was decided on Wednesday 16 May 2007. On that date, the first SNP administration was sworn in.

On that date, the British establishment realised the measures to keep Holyrood firmly and permanently under the control of the British parties had failed. On that date, the British political elite determined that the Scottish Parliament would have to be reined in – or be destroyed.

The Scottish Parliament can survive only as Westminster’s obedient, servile appendage, or as the Parliament of an independent nation.

    Do you believe Ruth Davidson really cares? She is letting her Scottish representatives in Westminster play the Westminster Tory card rather than a Scottish Tory card (if there is any real difference) in especial the four Tory brexiteers.

    The notion of a Scottish Tory group at Westminster is a media-generated myth. There is no such group. Ruth Davidson has absolutely no authority over ‘her’ Tories.

    That’s the stark choice all right. Be a forelock-tugging colonial or a proud resident of Scotland – you can’t be both!
