IT CAN ONLY BE YES!
The National Liberal party debated the calls for Scottish independence when the Scottish Government consulted on the nature of the question(s) to be chosen at the proposed referendum.
Being a self-determinist party we were delighted that the referendum would take place. We believe referendums should be conducted throughout the globe to settle age-old questions of national identity. Perhaps half the world’s conflicts, if not more, are fought over such questions. The world will be more stable and peaceful if self-determination is embraced rather than resisted.
Opinion polls had consistently indicated that voters, after years as living as ‘Britons’, were nervous of supporting independence. However, a majority did want further devolution up to what is known as Devo-Max i.e. controlling all matters except Military, Currency and Foreign Affairs. We proposed that a third question i.e. for Devo-Max be on the proposed referendum. A ‘secret’ deal between respective PM’s scuppered that prospect (we believe that the deal will see DM given to Scotland if it votes NO, but there is no certainty).
Thus, there are only TWO choices facing Scottish voters, a YES or NO to outright Independence. Since we will not see another referendum, if at all, for the Scottish people for a generation so this is truly monumental.
It is also symbolic, as a peaceful model as to how national conflicts should be settled and, if the YES votes win, will inspire countless struggles for national recognition and liberation.
Therefore the NLP’s self-determinist pressure group, Nations without States, is calling for members of self-determinist communities in Scotland e.g. Tamil, Sikh, Kurds, Kashmiris etc to vote YES on September 18th!
