Just like that, last night the Scottish Governments responsibility for renewable obligations was removed via an amendment to the Energy Bill in the unelected House of Lords without any consultation with the Scottish Government and no objection from the Labour Party or Liberals.
Now this might seem like a piddly little issue but that is not the point. If the House of Lords can do this then what will be next. Holyrood only exists as long as Westminster allows it, the power to dissolve the devolved parliament lies in the hands of, let’s be honest, English MPs. If it’s a YES vote next year, and the direction of travel indicates it may well be, will Westminster just ignore the democratic will of the Scottish people and dissolve the Scottish Parliament and take the chance that 300 years of brainwashing and subjugation will result in little more than a whimper from the brow beaten Scottish people.
Lets be clear, what took place was a testing of the waters last night. England without Scotland faces a new and potentially devastating economic and democratic crisis. England’s balance of payments will nose dive resulting in the wipe out of their credit status, their influence around the table of the security council, the G8, the eu, these will all diminish overnight.
Westminster is waking up to the fact that Scotland might just be going down a different path, call me what you want but I just don’t trust them to play fair when we vote yes. The question is, are English troops on the streets of Scotland unthinkable if we vote YES, it might seem far-fetched but you know what, if they are willing to remove powers in the dark of the night with no opposition from that lackeys that pretend to be the Scottish branch of Labour then what ends will they go to fight for what they think is theirs and their God-given right to govern Scotland.
We better all beware and we better all wake to the threat that is Westminster and the Unionist parties and their friends. Last night was just the start.
