But hey, at least we finally cleared up whether Labour like the SNP or not.
Dear Mr […]
Thank you for the letter, the text of which you copied from wingsoverscotland.com.
I should point out that September’s vote is not a choice between independence and Labour’s vision of increased devolution of powers: it is about whether or not Scotland would be better off separate from the UK and the EU.
In the event of Scottish voters rejecting independence, there will no doubt be an extended debate about the future of devolution. While I understand why some are fixated on tax raising powers the SNP Government, at least, seems to consider such matters as irrelevant, since it has declined to use the tax varying powers Holyrood has had since 1999.
The sad fact is that those of a nationalist bent will view any devolution settlement short of full independence as unsatisfactory. It is of absolutely no surprise therefore that some supporters of the Yes campaign are unhappy with the devolution commission’s proposals.

But still, it seems to us that constituents are entitled to a somewhat better response to a set of legitimate, clear questions than a load of Nat-bashing snark from their elected representative. We’ll keep you updated with any other replies we hear about.
