Hot Topics : The news cycle is so fast these days that it’s hard to keep up.

And these news stories soon fade from the headlines. So we’ve begun a series of short videos which catch the essence of the day-to-day highlights from the independence movement.

Here are some recent ones from our Hot Topics playlist:

Fireworks at Westminster:

SNP MPs led by a furious Stephen Flynn walked out of the Commons Chamber this evening after parliament descended into chaos. The problem began when the Speaker accepted an amendment from the Labour party to an SNP Opposition Day debate. SNP had called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and were expected to get significant support. Labour and the Speaker’s sleight of hand meant that a vote for their amendment would deny a vote on the SNP motion. In the welter of points of order which followed, Stephen Flynn demanded that the speaker be brought before the house to explain himself.

Ten Thousand March Through Glasgow to Scottish Labour Conference:

This is the lastest of a series of marches in Scotland in support of a ceasefire in Gaza.

Not a Parliament of Equals

Neale Hanvey, Alba MP for Kirkcaldy, proposing a Ten Minute Bill in the Commons seeking to amend the Scotland Act to transfer the power to legislate for a referendum on Scottish Independence to the Scottish parliament. Predominantly English Tory, Labour and Lib Dem MPs shamefully banded together to vote it down. This latest Westminster Parliamentary assault on Scottish democracy took place in January, demonstrating yet again that this is NOT a parliament of equals.

A Breach of the Union Treaty?

The Rwanda Bill currently making its way through the House of Commons is likely to be voted into law by the Tories determined to ride roughshod over international legislation. Not only does the bill shamefully breach the UK’s human rights obligations, it also has implications for Scots law which could amount to a breach of the Treaty of Union. Joanna Cherry explains why and what the consequences would be.

  • I would point out that the Treaty of Union has been breached since its inception. It’s a Treaty of trade between two sovereign countries. No where does the treaty involve one party taking over the governance of the other. That would not be a treaty between two countries but an annexation of one by the other. This means that Westminster is breaking international law by attempting to stop Scotland’s people having their right to self determination.
