Cameron's lobbying ineptocracy - Paul Flynn MP | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it
How Cameron the crusader against lobbying plunged his snout so deeply into the trough, all you csn see of him are the soles of his Gucci shoes

"I believe that secret corporate lobbying, like the expenses scandal, goes to the heart of why people are so fed up with politics. It arouses people’s worst fears and suspicions about how our political system works, with money buying power, power fishing for money, and a cosy club at the top making decisions in their own interest”.

Craig Murray  » Scotland/England Maritime Boundaries | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

In 1999 Tony Blair, abetted by the Scottish traitor Donald Dewar, redrew the existing English/Scottish maritime boundary to annex 6,000 square miles of Scottish waters to England, including the Argyll field and six other major oilfields. The idea was specifically to disadvantage Scotland’s case for independence.

A personal introduction from Alistair A. Darling This is your leader speaking.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: who the devil came up with that dreadful name? Not me. I said we needed razzmatazz and suggested ‘There’s no business like the No business.’ They said that was too long. I suggested ‘No No No.’ They said keep it positive. I said ‘Say Yes to Shackles.’ That was pooh-poohed so I said ‘Pooh-pooh to you,’ which wasn’t really a suggestion but was quite popular.

Scottish independence: Tony Blair should help pro-Union campaign, says Miliband - Politics - Scotsman.com

LABOUR leader Ed Miliband has said former prime minister Tony Blair should play a role in the campaign against Scottish independence. “We would be happy to pay for Tony Blair’s bus fare up to Scotland. Given his lasting legacy as the Labour leader who lied to the country over going to war in Iraq, his engagement in the debate over Scotland’s constitutional future will positively boost support for independence. This truly is desperate stuff from the anti-independence parties.”

Frankly: An Inconvenient Truth | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

It is arguable that, if you take away or defeat the demand for independence, you take away or de-activate the engine which drives anglo-unionist parties to be devoted to devolution. This is why the independence referendum can be said to be as crucial for devolution as it is for independence itself.

As this FOI shows, the Scottish Government's stance on issues surrounding legal advice is the same as the UK Government.

Labour's Patricia Ferguson, then Minister for Parliament, replied: "By long-standing convention, the general policy of the Scottish Executive is that it does not disclose legal advice or whether it has taken legal advice."
