Re: New legislation
Dinnae fash yersel. After we make ourselves Independent* we can spend our evenings seeing how you Sassanachs are getting on by logging into your IOT devices while ours from within the strong EU regulatory framework will be impervious (once in my case I find an instance of IOT both useful and necessary, haven’t seen one yet).
*We may have to replace the SNP though, Sturgeon seems far to welded to the ‘gold plated standard’ of Section 30 order. Forgetting that once we are independent the method of getting there will be unimportant.
Personally I think ScotGov should make credible moves towards preparing for a UDI. We should NEVER rule out that we might go there if pushed hard enough and it should concentrate minds in Westminster/Whitehall.
We already control the Polis, making them a unitary force was necessary to forestall area commanders going rogue. We just need to square the, few, remaining troops. A mutiny defenestrating any non Scottish officers should do the trick. Then we have police and army so we’re independent and recognised.
Not that No10 will try and use the army against us. Those Scottish squaddies cannae be trusted laddie, Welsh and Irish ditto. So Gurkhas and English it will have to be looking like an invasion force.
The UK doesn’t have paramilitary police like the Guardia Civil or Gendarmes to call on. Non Scottish police need express permission to operate in Scotland under Scots law so sending coppers won’t work. If you send troops those quartered in Edinburgh Castle barracks might sally out to repel them and we wouldn’t want that, would we?
