Do you really believe that? Support for Scottish independence is now around 50%, and the last poll I saw showed support for remaining in the EU at 74%.
There are many more people than just me who are actively contributing, financially and otherwise, to extract Scotland from the UK. The momentum is well and truly with us; the UK is doomed.

Dream on! It isn't and will never be Scotland's unilateral decision. Only the whole UK can make a decision that affects the whole of the UK. 

 

Tail wagging the dog doesn't work when push comes to shove.

Correct, but the leaked plans to introduce a photo ID requirement in order to vote reveal an intention to disenfranchise voters.

 

 

 

Please explain how?

The Queen's speech sets out the legislative plans and agenda for the government in the new Parliament session. The size of majority, or lack of, is irrelevant to this speech.

I disagree, in that I feel that the failure of this govt to command a majority should be noted

Of course it is. How can any government justify a Queen's speech when it does not command a majority to enact the legislation being proposed.

Johnson is desperate for an election and the speech should have been left until that had happened. In reality the speech was only part of a plan to shut down parliament, cancelling the speech would have been an admission of guilt. People should remember at one point he suggested an election on the 14th Oct.

Wonder what expression Charles will have next time round.

Produce a brexit deal that can pass in parliament or an extension and johnson can have his election. 

Why wait ? Labour can't hide forever.

Scotland is a sovereign nation in its own right. The opinions of our neighbours, while noted, will not decide the course Scotland decides to take for itself.

There was no vote in the rest of the UK when Scotland joined and there will be no vote there if/when Scotland decides to have another referendum.

All Brits should carry ID cards, as in most civilized countries.

It is not Mr Johnson's election, nor is it the election granted by Parliament (or more accurately perhaps by the alliance of the opposition and the Tory rebels) it is the election which belongs to the British electorate. You are effectively saying that the British electorate can have an election once the demands of that group within parliament are satisfied. A group which were elected on manifesto pledges, passed legislation, and are now cytnically reneging on both those manifesto pledges and that legislation.

 

It's johnson who wanted an election after he lost his majority.

 

It's not me who said it, it's the democratically elected opposition in Parliament...
