So, come what may, so-called Scottish Labour will never support a second independence referendum. Which is why, amongst other things, I will never, ever support so-called Scottish Labour.
It was all there in Theresa May's speech on Brexit: The British (English, really) craving for status, the desire to domineer and dominate (not least, Scotland), and the post-imperial delusion that the United Kingdom is somehow on a par with the United States, the European Union, and China.
Not only that, but the Prime Minister seemed to lay the blame for Brexit on the EU, saying it "has struggled to deal with the diversity of its member countries and their interests. It bends towards uniformity, not flexibility." Nicola Sturgeon may wish to quote those words when calling a second independence referendum, which she should win, if Scotland has any self-respect.
A new low. Someone, presumably English, leaves a comment on a blog, making it clear that they despise Scotland and would be rid of us unless we remain servile. And yet, still there is a pitiful self-loathing Scot, seeking to ingratiate herself with the very person who sees her as subordinate, pleading for his acceptance.
