“Scotland set to lose 2 WM MP’s, Wales lose 8, England to GAIN 10. Here’s your “equal” family of nations in action. A political Union with England tightening its iron grip on its dictatorial rule. Time for Scotland to have no WM representation. Independence is the only way 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳...

IRVINE WELSH ‘The real fear of elites in England is that, if Scotland is independent, at a stroke, there’s no royal family, no House of Lords, no Eton. And people in England are going to say – we’ll have some of that.’

A second referendum in Scotland is “likely” before 2025 and Wales must prepare for it by holding its own constitutional convention, the First Minister has said. Mark Drakeford told the Morning Star that the Welsh Government would be pressing ahead with the convention...

“On the occasion of the UK Supreme Court's preemption of Scots Law”
Finally some independence leadership:

“The current UK constitutional set up permits a Northern Irish referendum on Irish reunification every 7 years. Why should the position be any different for Scotland & why shd a party that hasn’t won an election in Scotland since the 50s set these conditions?”

“So if the Supreme Court tomorrow strikes down Bills passed by the Scottish Parliament, then it can also strike down a Referendum Bill. In that case no ballot box for Scotland until 2026 election. Despite warnings some people ain't getting this!”
"Scotland cannot have both democracy and the Union. The Union is fundamentally anti-democratic. The Union must be broken for democracy to prevail.

Even though an English majority in HofC (85% of all MPs) have passed legislation to change or reword the 1707 Act of Union and pass new acts they did not necessarily have the 'right' to do so?
