    I wasn't being harsh on myself, it was aimed directly at you. But you're so #thichasfcuk it passed you by. See, I can spell, that's twice in a row I've got it right.

    It's not "repeating the same mantra", it's holding a government to account over its manifesto promises. I know it doesn't happen with Westminster parties but it demonstrates another difference between Scotland and rUK.

    I posted that Scotland elected a government with a manifesto commitment to holding an Indyref if we were taken out of the EU against our will. I also pointed out that Westminster voted to confirm that sovereignty lies with the people of Scotland, not with Westminster. Under those circumstances, Westminster has NO right to deny Indyref2 if and when the SG calls it. That, apparently, is fantasy.

    Still #thichasfcuk I see.

    Then give us all the benefit of your view and answer the question I asked. Otherwise run off and stop wasting people's time.

    No, you haven't, and, as usual, you run away pretending you've "won" when you can't answer.

    Since oaky's ignoring the question, I'll ask you - what's wrong with what I said, why does it make me a fantasist? And it's not "back to being a fantasist" when you haven't been able to show what's fantasy in my original post.

    You're very good at "calling people out" in an attempt to deflect from being called out. Classic Dickson right there. I'll ask again, what part of what I said is wrong?

    Thanks for your edifying contribution. I must remember to ignore the promises parties make in their manifestos in future when deciding where my vote goes. And just pick someone at random and vote for them. That's not even close to what I posted, except perhaps in your head. For clarity, you're saying that what I've said is wrong, yes? If so, which part of what I said is wrong?

    Scotland voted for a government with a manifesto stating "We believe that the Scottish Parliament should have the right to hold another referendum if there is clear and sustained evidence that independence has become the preferred option of a majority of the Scottish people – or if there is a significant and material change in the circumstances that prevailed in 2014, such as Scotland being taken out of the EU against our will." That hasn't happened yet but when it does then the party in power has an obligation to effect its promise to the people that gave it that power and hold the referendum. Westminster has already agreed that sovereignty in Scotland lies with the people of Scotland so Westminster has NO right, moral or otherwise, to deny a referendum.

    My argument now is exactly the same as it was in 2014, pro-EU. Nothing has happened since then to change that, I was pointing out the difference between the two unions in my original post. You have a really vivid imagination to come up with that pile of steaming pish, I'll let people decide for themselves who the fantasist is.

    Really? Why's that then?

    As a nationalist, this an easy one to answer. In the UK, our country's view is ignored; in the EU, we could veto. Imagine the EU was in a union with (say) Russia. In the referendum to decide whether to stay or go, Scotland voting to stay would be all that was required to throw leave under the bus. We would actually be the equal partner we were told we'd be if we stayed in the UK.
