Sturgeon: Scotland might vote to block Brexit

Post by Ben Reilly on Mon Jun 27, 2016 5:04 pm

Nicola Sturgeon has suggested that the Scottish parliament could block the passage of legislation necessary for the UK to leave the EU.

In an interview with the Sunday Politics Scotland, she said that “of course” she would consider asking the Scottish parliament to vote down the legislative consent motions required for the legislation.

In her fifth major political interview of the morning, Scotland’s first minister told the show’s host, Gordon Brewer: “If the Scottish parliament is judging this on the basis of what’s right for Scotland, then the option of saying we’re not going to vote for something that’s against Scotland’s interests, that’s got to be on the table. You’re not going to vote for something that is not in Scotland’s interests.”

Asked if she could imagine the fury of English people who voted for Brexit if Scotland tried to block the UK leaving the EU, she said: “I can, but it’s perhaps similar to the fury of many people in Scotland right now as we face the prospect of being taken out of the EU against their will. I didn’t create these situations. I’m trying to navigate the best way forward through them.”

Adam Tomkins, leading constitutional law expert and newly elected Conservative MSP, made the point that Sturgeon’s words should be interpreted carefully, given that there was a huge difference between withholding consent and having a veto.

“Holyrood has no power to block Brexit. It is not clear that a legislative consent motion would be triggered by Brexit, but withholding consent is not the same as having the power to block. The Scottish parliament does not hold the legal power to block [the UK exiting the EU].”

He added that the Holyrood parliament was not powerless – for example, it could refuse to give its consent to changes to the devolution settlement required by Brexit – but that its power simply does not extend to having a veto.

“Holyrood has no power to block Brexit."


From the article.


Just a load of hot air.

You are right. Holyrood only has power in Scotland. It is the law in Scotland that EU laws must be followed.

Render onto England, UK laws. Render onto Scotland, Scottish laws. It's really a misnomer to say that Scotland might block Brexit. Scotland doesn't give a fook about Brexit...only about it's own system.

Just a load of hot air.

Jo Murkens, an associate professor of law at the London School of Economics I spoke with about this, told me that this isn’t actually an iron-clad veto. The Scotland Act was passed by the UK Parliament, and Parliament can amend it on its own to reduce the Scottish Parliament’s powers.

To exit the EU and avoid a binding Scottish veto, "Parliament would have to repeal the European Communities Act 1972 (by which it became a member) and would also have to amend the devolution legislation pertaining to Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland," Murkens said. "That strikes me as technically easy, but politically difficult."

If the Conservative Party is insistent on Brexiting and is willing to overturn decades of law giving Northern Ireland and Scotland (both of which voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU) local control over their affairs, then it can totally do so.

But, as Murkens also noted, such a dramatic action could risk a huge backlash. Scotland is already planning to hold another independence referendum, and seeing devolution curtailed would make its success much more likely. Northern Irish republicans would be emboldened to call for unification with the Republic of Ireland, which could occur, or they could just reignite the Troubles after decades of peace.

If the overriding objective of Conservatives, however, is to "preserve the integrity of the United Kingdom as a state," Murkens said, "the objective of keeping NI and Scotland in the United Kingdom would turn them into veto players … Scotland and NI have voted to remain and the cost of not listening to them would be to split the UK."

Irony at its best

The Cherokee Nation is the federally-recognized government of the Cherokee people and has inherent sovereign status recognized by treaty and law. The seat of tribal government is the W.W. Keeler Complex near Tahlequah, Okla., the capital of the Cherokee Nation.

With more than 317,000 citizens, over 8,000 employees and a variety of tribal enterprises ranging from aerospace and defense contracts to entertainment venues, Cherokee Nation’s economic impact in Oklahoma and surrounding areas is more than $1.5 billion annually. We are one of the largest employers in northeastern Oklahoma. We are the largest tribal nation in the United States.

We are all in uk parliament... all with full representation... and all subservient to uk decisions.


Over 2 million Scots have already voted to remain in the UK... much more than those who want to remain in eu!

Scotland welcome to join EU, Merkel ally says


An independent Scotland would be welcome to join the European Union, a senior German lawmaker and ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel has said after Britain's vote to leave the bloc.

"The EU will still consist of 28 member states, as I expect a new independence referendum in Scotland, which will then be successful," said Gunther Krichbaum, a member of Merkel's conservatives and chairman of the European affairs committee in parliament.

"We should respond quickly to an application for admission from the EU-friendly country," he told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Sunday that Scotland will do whatever it takes to remain in the EU, including potentially blocking legislation on a British exit from the bloc.

While Britain as a whole voted narrowly to leave the EU in last Thursday's referendum, Scotland voted by a 62 percent to 38 percent margin to remain. In a referendum in 2014 Scotland voted 55 percent to 45 percent to stay part of the United Kingdom, but polls show that support for independence has since risen.

Once we leave the eu and Scotland vote to leave the UK... then they can start joining up as a tiny country getting shafted by the eu and the euro...


Good luck with that!!!

Very large poll done in Scotland over the weekend showed that nearly 70% would vote for independence now.

And with the UK (England) making enemies on such a large scale, I'm predicting a stampede in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It's equivalent to statehood, but you've never really understood how that works so we won't try that again here.

The other tribes have similar sovereignty -- don't blame me for your lack of research. You think it would just be the Cherokee?

"The manifesto that the SNP was elected on last month said this: 'The Scottish Parliament should have the right to hold another referendum on 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'.
"Scotland does now face that prospect. It is a significant and material change in circumstances and it is therefore a statement of the obvious that the option of a second referendum must be on the table and it is on the table."


They will hold it, with or without our permission, and they won't give a damn whether permission is given or not.

That's just not true now. Each member state is entitled to give an opinion for the EU parliament to consider but no country has an absolute veto to deny a new country admission.

So you are admitting that the Remain camp were lying when they said they had a veto over Turkey and others joining...!?


Or are you lying now on Scotland's chance of joining?


lol!

most of the world supports them doing so (as it will provide stability)
You are not playing nice so YES we all understand they are not going to play nice in return.
the harder and faster the fuck you the better for the global economy
as the quicker everything returns to 'normal' for the rest of us.

It's already normal for the Aussies. I doubt they even put down their cans of beer when they saw the result. It's not your business really is it?


No heaps of Aussies are having to get Irish passports or some other EU nations passports.
Plus the banks, super funds and investors have to pull our money out and find new places to invest.

And we sell resources, people buy less resources when there is uncertainty, Once the world see's Europe has this problem 'under control' we will all breathe easier.

No Aussie is so dumb to suggest that an event this momentous in economy that we had significant ties to to enable our trade with Europe is not out business. It is not our choice, but it is still our business and something we will have to react to

cause now you get fucked harder, you will realise you were not gettign fucked at all before. you just had what every other non-super power had. now you are going to have less as super powers now want you to suffer.

And no Sympathy will be given the englishmen cause it is still so much nicer and less cruel than when you where a super power. Rolling Eyes

these are just the facts of life, you fucked with a bigger stronger beast then yourself, now you will pay the consequence.

What happened to the people that Fucked with the British when the British were a super power? In fact what happened to people that just happened to have something the British wanted to take?

So what do you think will happen to the British Now that they are fucking with a super power? On Purpose and by Popular vote no less!

Already this super power has been infinitely nicer and more accommodating of your culture and concerns than pretty much any super power in history and You STILL feel hard done by. And expect sympathy for the Choosing this Fate. Suspect Suspect Suspect

Its equivalent to Scotland in the UK, showing you do not understand how things work
So none have indepence and stop lying like you constantly do


scratch

WHY  do you keep spouting lies on these issues,, Didge...

Despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of indigenous communities, families and/or tribes in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA have rejected the totalitarian and largely fascist "independence" model that you and a motley hodge podge of discredited Brazilian and Iranian academics wants to force upon them..

AND WOULD RATHER work towards recognition within the countries that they were born in..

WHY do you keep on trying to foist your unwanted and undesirable white supremacist, sophist, "we know better !"  selfish views upon those poor and unsuspecting innocents  ???

WHAT have they ever done to you, Didge ?      afro

If Sturgeon tries to stop the UK leaving the EU, it will cause a lot of damage to Scotland's relationship with England. Basically she's saying that she doesn't give a toss about England or Wales, and she will completely ignore the wishes of the majority of the UK. Well we already knew that she doesn't give a toss about anything but Scotland didn't we? If most Scots support her in this, I think it's time we waved goodbye to each other.

So say's the sanctimonious - highly religious member that    's the community and dribbles her scathing mental dumps about members and is allowed the freedom to do that without ever getting her knuckles busted for her vile attcks    
Such a supreme example of proper behavior
