"All parties must endorse the right of the people of Scotland to have their say on Scotland’s constitutional future."
So here's a question why don't the SNP want the people of Scotland to have their say? They want to ask a question of the people which says:
"I agree that the Scottish Government should negotiate a settlement with the Government of the United Kingdom so that Scotland becomes an independent state."
Look at that carefully. They are going to let the UK Parliament have a say in what future Scotland has. They want to negotiate a settlement with the UK Parliament. They are not actually backing the people of Scotland having a say on the constitutional future of Scotland.
There is no blueprint for what that future holds, that decision is to be discussed between the Scottish and Westminster Parliaments. The people of Scotland are actually be asked do they agree to waive their rights over the constitutional future of their country into the hands of the politicians.
So why aren't the SNP even a party that is prepared to let the people of Scotland have their say on the constitutional future of Scotland?
I've already stated I'd welcome a referendum of substance, that is something the Lib Dems have not ruled out, but it is something the SNP are scared to give the people.
