OurKingdom has my thoughts on Wendy Alexander’s decison to come out in favour of a Scottish Independence referendum:
Her actions were widely seen as sidelining the Calman Commission, which
was largely her creation. However, It now looks as if any referendum is
likely to come after the Commission has reported. It’s proposals will
be crucial to the unionist case. That is a powerful incentive to offer
Scotland as much autonomy as possible, rather than risk losing the
Alexander’s move prompted some interesting exchanges at Holyrood today.
