    Just when I thought the Scottish National Party couldn't get any more hostile to the elected Westminster government.

    They must be getting even more desperate.

    Desperate? I'd have thought things were going their way at the moment.

    Every party is gloating at Tory own goals at the moment.
    Indyref 2 is wanted by the SNP next year.
    They might get a mandate to hold one even if Westminster disagrees.
    Failing that they could declare UDI.

    Problem is, the SNP are not a party of the right, left, or centre.
    They claim to represent all Scots, which means democracy will suffer if they get their way.
    Democracy works best when there is a balance either side of the centre with the governing party made accountable.
    If the SNP do get their wish, would they ever surrender power back to a unionist party?

    SNP now fail to be granted Indyref2 by court.
    So what next?

    Unilateral Declaration of Independence?
    Next general election to be treated as Indyref2?
    Replace Sturgeon with someone else?

    Personally, I wish they would go and I think that goes now for the rest of the UK.
