Look like the Tory plan, put Truthless in the HOL and make her Governor general of Scotland. 

We are in peril like never before. First step return all powers to Westminster.

This day just gets worse.

God Nana I didn't think it could get worse, but the Westminster cabal will be sitting at their round table (for years now) making plans for us right down to the nitty gritty. If only we were flies on the wall!

@petra

We would be naive to think they haven't been plotting ever since indyref 2014 and they will do anything and everything to keep us because without Scotland they are nothing. No standing in the world without the money for their wars and no money for their whores in the HOL

That should be on a banner,

Scotland stop funding England
