Oh please- the United Kingdom flags are flying to mark tomorrow's State Opening of the United Kingdom Parliament! Always happens. I wish people on both wings of the Brexit would stop seeing plots where none exist

Calling our friends, neighbours, family and comrades-in-arms a burden is deeply offensive. The Union isn’t a shotgun marriage, a temporary trade deal that sees us shacked up out of convenience, its a shared history and deep bond giving hope for the future.

Many of us have had our eyes open from the start of this. Those for who Brexit is an ideological crusade have never been friends of Unionism

I agree with those who say doesn't sufficiently understand Unionism, but hope this article might remind Unionists that Brexit hard-liners are not their friends.

Of course Parliament could override PPERA but that would add complexity to a Referendum Bill. Whatever the pros & cons of a referendum, it isn't a quick or easy process.

There's no general enabling power for a govt to hold a referendum. So you'd need primary legislation (incorporating the question(s)), money resolution & some secondary legislation on practical details of administering it. Precedents are refs on AV, Scottish independence, EU.

I take the Secretary of State at his word and am hoping to meet Mr Oakervee soon to put my constituents’ arguments to him. The ultimate test will be not just what the report concludes but now it addresses the evidence & arguments.
