Here's the transmission charges that @AngusRobertson was talking about.

Scots pay more in transmission fees THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN EUROPE.

Why? Because Westminster saw fit to put the Scottish grid into the hands of two private profit making companies. #bbcqt

Both @AngusRobertson and man in audience point out that in 2014 Scots were told "say no to independence and stay in the EU"

That was a lie, so its time for #indyref2

#BBCQT

Scotland’s up there with the most politically educated nations on earth, but some made the mistake of believing Westminster would ever deliver the promises they made back in 2014. They never will. Time’s up. #ScottishIndependence #bbcqt

“We keep electing them. You need to wake up and smell the coffee”

This #bbcqt audience members dismisses arguments that the SNP are a one-issue party and points to their share of the votes in Scotland.

🔥 This audience member on #bbcqt absolutely nails it.

"We don't run a country based on opinion polls", but on elections.

The Tories haven't won in Scotland since 1955, and pro-independence parties won an overwhelming mandate for #indyref2. That's basic democracy.

#BBCQT audience member: “Members of this panel keep pointing their fingers at the SNP, saying that they are a one issue party. That they are never going to take no for an answer. But we keep electing them. You need to wake up and smell the coffee.”

Democracy is pretty simple.

Scottish Labour’s Pam Duncan Glancy doesn’t think the 2021 Scottish Election was about independence when her party never shut up about it as they desperately used the issue to attract Tory unionist votes. Labour came a distant 2nd in Scotland. #bbcqt

“In 2014 I was a yes voter and my English husband voted no - 2023, I’m a yes voter again and guess what my husband is going to be voting?”

This #bbcqt audience member outlines why she believes pro-union voters have changed their minds on independence, adding “bring it on”.

The @CommonsIntTrade fury with the Secretary of State not turning up for her promised meeting has made the news in Australia. 👇 https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/british-mps-may-delay-australia-trade-deal-after-minister-s-no-show-20220630-p5axun.html

Good ideas always come of age, but we have to make it policy now - so this year's Lewis & Harris Branch "Plan B' motion to SNP conference should have more success. 👍😁 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
Discussion on amendments and pro & cons of seats v votes would be fine and healthy too.

Legal apparatus of UK will likely mean independence decided by an election 👇
"In Oct, five senior judges, led by the Supreme Court’s Scottish president, Lord Reed of Allermuir, ruled that two Bills passed by MSPs were incompatible with the Scotland Act'

This is a clip from a debate during the 2014 independence campaign in Scotland. We were told that UK membership of the EU wasn’t at risk. It was false. Now the only way for Scotland to be in the EU is with independence. It works well for other countries. #WhyNotScotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺 https://twitter.com/rosscolquhoun/status/1541506630856097793

👀 Liberal Democrat MP Alistair Carmichael: “The only way to guarantee leaving the EU is by leaving the United Kingdom.”

@WeeLassDi I’m English. I live in Scotland. I think Scotland can build a better society when independent. I think the people of Scotland should get the government they vote for.

@AngusMacNeilSNP Exactly the point I was making to unionist work colleagues today - the Unionist /WM Interest have one chance to 'win' and that's October next year. If they wait for a WM GE - based on seats, their rules remember - they will be swept away. Them's dem rules.

📢Chair @AngusMacNeilSNP has written to Trade Secretary @annietrev asking her to reconsider her decision not to grant Parliament enough time for detailed scrutiny of the #UKAusFTA

🔎Read it here: https://committees.parliament.uk/publications/22875/documents/167910/default/

Some Northern Ireland Protocol polling this morning, courtesy of those fine people at Queen's University. And no question of the headline figure - just 5% of Northern Ireland voters trust the UK government with respect to the Protocol. 47% trust the EU. 60% trust NI business.

When is a leading figure within UK Labour going to come out in favour of free movement, the single market and rejoining the EU and then challenge Starmer for the leadership? Scotland will vote for indy but what choices do the people of England have?
