2012-02-27 Scottish independence referendum not fit for purpose

Two criticisms of the referendum proposal as it stands:

1. The referendum as proposed (February 2012) by the SNP led scottish government will be about the principle of independence or some weaker variant, putting a simple, “opener” question (or maybe two). It cannot address the substance of an independence treaty.

2. In order that the people of Scotland can decide democratically and legitimately, the FINAL NEGOTIATED TREATY or SETTLEMENT PROPOSAL must be put before the electorate and people in a legally binding referendum ballot, after the government and others have organised comprehensive public briefing, detailing  and explaining what is on offer.
