On #indyref today:
“We now pledge to further strengthen the powers of the Scottish Parliament, in particular in the areas of fiscal responsibility and social security”.
Translation: “We’ve seen the polls: Scots want more powers. Vote No. Then our English MPs will democratically veto any new powers.”
“The people who have the biggest stake in a successful Scotland are those who live and work here.”
Translation: “In Scotland, the people are sovereign. Please help us to write your new constitution – we’ve done a draft to get things started.”
Promises from three politicians who do not hold power at Westminster, or a written constitution you can help write.
