But the wishes of the population, through successive polls through the years, have shown at the very least a total split on the question, and the majoirity have been against independence. so how are you defining "they wish" or "wishes of the people" or "a particular area"?
I'm saying precisely that!
I don't know what you're saying. If there isn't a clear majority in favour of it, then of course it shouldn't happen.
No, you weren't saying precisely that at all - or if you are saying that, then presumably you must also be condemning the referendum as much as I do - even if, on balance, and with a lot of reservations over the right-wing nationalist pockets of the independence movement, I probably support an independence claim (but ultimately this is obviously a domestic issue and up for them to decide).
