So after the Election deluge where does the Union stand today?
As Mr Salmond said
The Union would have been on a precarious balancing act if there had been a coalition government
Now it seems even worse with a slim, very slim, Tory majority
Secession north of the border and detachment from the EU south?
Here are the thoughts of Mario Monti – former EU commissioner, former”parachuted-in” Italian PM, arch neo -liberal
In any case Mr Cameron is going to ask for changes in the EU – at a time when it is concerned with
Mr Putin in the Ukraine,
boat people in the Med,
Grexit and so on
The EU leaders are going to have a real lot of time for Mr Cameron’s Treaty twiddling and fiddling
The Conservatives have promised an In/Out EU Referendum in 2017
Scotland has already said she doesn’t want an EU exit
Does Mr Cameron even have a mandate in Scotland to over-ride a vote if the outcome doesn’t please him?
“There are 3 polar bears in Scotland, I’m told, at Highland Wildlife Park –
so that’s one each for Lab, LD and Tory MPs”
Does he have a mandate in NI, which elected NO Conservative MPs?
Ireland doesn’t want to leave the EU. So can we expect
a reinforced frontier across the country once again?
And talking about Ireland
What’s happening in Ar Wee Pravince?
The DUP are no longer Kingmakers (if they ever were outside of their deluded delirium). But hope never dies and our very own Peter
said: ” it is fairly clear there will be votes during the course of that period of time where support of other parties will be necessary and we would look to have a good relationship and work with him ( Mr Cameron) if it helps to realise the Northern Ireland plan.”
Conditional loyalty – a warning to the UK government!
