The House of Lords agrees with me, ...

... Labour's Baroness Jay, said: "We are firmly of the view that any referendum that is held must be a straight choice between full independence or the status-quo".

"A third 'devolution-max' option is clearly something every part of the UK must have a say in as it has the potential to create different and competing tax regimes within the UK."

Yet SNP MSP Kenneth Gibson said Scotland's constitutional future could only be decided by the people who live in Scotland.  He said: "The position is very clear - the Scottish government achieved an overwhelming mandate from the people of Scotland to hold the referendum that is exactly what we will do."

Of course he is correct, but he should be minded that the constitutional future of Britain belongs to all the peoples of Britain ........ not just to the SNP cabal.
