Twitter was alive tonight with the idea that Ian Blackford, SNP leader at Westminster, had said that saving England from Brexit comes first and independence second.
He didn’t exactly say that he said save the U.K. first and then put independence to the Scottish people. It’s about 23 minutes into the link below.

I really do wonder about the wisdom of the SNP right now, as well as it’s leadership. Any sort of Brexit deal kills independence in my option, and while it’s all very noble of Ian Blackford it is not why he was elected, and if independence isn’t first every time then I question their desire for it.
Now I know people will say be patient, Brexit hasn’t happened yet, trust Nicola and the party. Well I’m sorry the answer is becoming no very quickly. The direction of travel has changed and this is just more confirmation for myself. What are the yes movement not being told because it’s starting to feel like the SNP don’t want independence as much as many of us do. This all started after the Brexit vote and Pete Wisharts magical 60% in the polls. Something doesn’t feel right to me at all. Questions need to be asked and party members need to be asking them.
What more will it take or are we being sold down the river, if we are the SNP are finished and so is independence.
