  • What I would like to know is:

    - Is independence even legally possible? How could the Treaty of Union be abandoned when the parliaments that passed the Acts of Union have been extinguished? Can Westminister MPs, or indeed Scottish MPs vote for it?

    - Is the devolved Scottish government a reconvened session of the original Parliament of Scotland which agreed to the Treaty of Union with England?

    Issues which were raised by being referred to this article: http://www.journalonline.co.uk/Magazine/52-6/1004238.aspx
