I agree the government should have sought a "political solution" (a bribe) three or four years ago, but the conflict suits both sides.

They can't allow a referendum as you know - or change the constitution to allow referendums. For one thing it would mean 17 referendums and 17 bribes, and for another thing it would expose the country to a pretty absurd degree of uncertainty - communities would just demand a referendum every time they wanted anything. It would completely still intenral and external investment.
Perish the thought that a referendum might have that effect.
