While it's quiet in here at the moment perhaps Kem can give his thoughts on whether Swinson was correct to say that she "does not forgive David Cameron for calling a referendum on the EU"?

Baring in mind she was all for one before.

From the article:

QUOTE
Liberal Democrats therefore remain committed to an in/out referendum the next time a British government signs up for fundamental change in the relationship between the UK and the EU.

Looks to me like the Lib Dems would not have called a referendum themselves, if in the unlikely position of being in government. The position looks to be one of readiness to defend our EU membership were one to be called. And I think that's what they have now done and continue to do.

You are brazenly using the Leave vote to strengthen your argument for Scottish independence. For you, Brexit is a free ride, which you are taking advantage of; your apparent interest in the heart of this debate is very clearly a false pretence.

And yet, if the SNP had got its way, then the Brexit referendum would not have happened, because the party opposed it. See the very first post in this thread.

I hope another indyref never happens, but if one does, I hope SNP policy would, in lieu of a general election, continue to allow for a people's vote on the final deal, which thankfully remains a shared policy of the political alliance opposed to Brexit.

No i'm not Kem, i merely asked for your thoughts on Swinson's comment.

You make that sound like a bad thing?

You, Swinson and Rennie too, thankfully it's not up to your lot. wink.gif

ohmy.gif Surprise, surprise no mention of Proroguing Parliament in these discussions. It has been compulsive viewing for me. thumbup.gif

You could've just admitted you were wrong. I mean, would the Lib Dems need to call a Brexit referendum? wacko.gif

But to vote against holding one was undemocratic. The SNP alone opposed it, exhibiting one heck of a double standard.

As far as forgiveness goes, well, I believe in it even if Jo can't. smile.gif
