The SNP is fine as long as they only discuss achieving Independence. The poop hits the fan when they discuss the actuality of Independence. Much the same as the Unification issue for Ireland.
It isn't the same situation. A Dublin administration already exists. Thus people in the North know what Dublin is like and hence what a new Irish state would be like (basically its going to be the present Dublin administration with the North added on in one way or other) HOWEVER people find it harder to conceive what an independent Scotland would be like.

Don't think an independent Scotland would be good for the left or for workers rights.

True to an extent, rather like SF a while back.

Wishful thinking :)

It is right that the SNP numbskulls have ditched their anti-NATO policy and are saying that, in the extremely unlikely event that Scotland were to become independent, it would be a part of NATO.

They have finally woken up and realised that it is NATO which has kept the peace in Europe for the last 60 years and being a part of NATO would be good for Scotland's security.
