Mr Russell is correct about the British government denying the people of Scotland our "basic democratic rights". But it is Section 30 of the Scotland Act which legitimises this denial with authority derived from the Union. He is correct when he observes that this denial of our right of self-determination is "illegal under international law". But Section 30 makes it legal under British law.NICOLA...
Replying to 
+PeterABell Is there such a thing as British law? Surely the S30 is merely a formality and not the right to withhold or deny the democratic process. We just have a referendum if England dont abide by it tough, as long as its recognised by the rest of the global community. Democracy essentially doesnt work when you have to ask the permission of another country to ALLOW you to hold a vote in your own country.
