Scottish Independence Referendum
The Scottish Times reports the Scottish Democratic Alliance (SDA), led by chairman Dr James Wilkie, has sent letters, with a joint Memorandum sounding the alarm,to the Council of Europe (CoE) and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warning of the potential for the UK Government to politically interfere in Scotland's referendum and for its failure to observe international law by asserting that only it has the legal competence to legislate for the plebiscite.
Last week I wrote about the involvement of the SDA in Scottish politics and their support for independence but some commenters were unsure of their aims.
It's to be hoped that those who were dubious will now be more assured that the SDA works for the independence cause and the efforts of Dr Wilkie - a retired diplomat and currently a consultant to the UN - and his party, will be appreciated.
