Another Excellent Example Of Why We Must Vote YES
This has just come to light although the amendment was passed before Christmas.
According to Mike Weir’s response Amendment 54 was introduced at the last minute and voted upon by the House of Unelected Representatives.
As much as I disagree in part with the Scottish Government’s renewables policy, I find it astonishing that Westminster can remove powers with such audacity and without appeal.
A similar tactic was used by Tony Blair when he moved the line of Scottish waters to level with Carnoustie, although his cloak and dagger behaviour happened in the House of Commons.
Who would want to be part of the UK when the current Big Brother government acts in such a manner?
If the answer to the referendum is No, then Westminster politicians will have a field day asset stripping Scotland and leaving the Scottish Parliament little more that a parish council. Thus making Tony Blair’s dream come true.
