Seeing as I doubt it will give a significant boost to their votes up here (The SNP would take the credit for forcing the issue from pro independence voters) not sure why Labour have a reason to support it beyond that of an idealogical belief in democracy.

The drum is being beaten harder and harder right now by the SNP for a second ref and it is on the back of the mess that has been Westminster these last few years which they are seizing upon to tip things in favour of a YES vote next time around.

From the little I saw of the SNP conference it seems the campaign for YES is back up and running again with some vigour.

All appearances of course, the proof of the pudding is in the tasting
I think thats true and he comes across pretty well - but, however much he may apologise, his past (IRA support in particular) will count heavily against him in a GE campaign. Labour much better choosing safer option bit doubt momentum will let them

Yes you are totally right.

Feel a bit silly for not picking up the total obvious 🙂
