Wishart making more sense in that article. One last go for a sanctioned referendum then withdraw co-operation in British state institutions and petition the international community and the EU. 

So Pete finally agrees we need a Plan B - but for after one final throw of the S30 dice. 

Thanks for the links Ann. I didn't watch the briefing from Nicola Sturgeon today but hear that she was giving them laldy. Looking forward to seeing your link to the press conference tomorrow, as I can't find it on the ScotGov site.

 

Boris the Butcher stated that there is no border between Scotland and England this morning. If he says so it must be right enough, lol. Meanwhile twitter is all atwitter about it.

 

The article by Pete Wishart is well worth a read, imo, especially when I see that Peter Bell is at a loss for words now!
