Minority Rule?

There is a majority on the floor of Holyrood against an independence referendum, so it won't pass. The SNP did not win the Election outright, and should remember that.

Never mind at Westminster, where, unless there are now a few hardened English separatists on the Tory benches, the only votes in favour would be the SNP, Plaid Cymru, and the SDLP if they fancied losing the Labour Whip. Plus a few Labour or Lib Dem MPs from English seats who never again wanted to be able to look their Scottish or Welsh colleagues in the eye.

The same applies at Westminster where further devolution is concerned, whether to Scotland or to Wales.
