Black is white. Hot is cold. UK legal advice is breathtakingly arrogant. AhDinnaeKen takes a look at the latest reality check to slap the Yesminster square in the chops.
By Nicola Innwunderland
DEPUTY MISS Leader Sturgeon has been accused of an act of breathtaking denial by denying what can’t be denied – Scotland would be considered a country independent of the UK if it was to gain independence from the UK.
The accusation follows the Pantsonfire fighter’s attempts to muddy the legal waters following impartial legal opinion provided by a nice old Cambridge Don, Professor Cannaeafford, and a Quisling turncoat traitor from Edinborrow University, Professor Alan Boilhiminoil.
Both professor’s internationally respected credentials were impugned by Miss Leader Sturgeon who accused them of causing “breathtaking embarrassment” to her cause of miss leading the Scots over the SNP’s Indy fantasy.
She also retreated into Nationalist newspeak with a capital ‘N’ accusing the report of adopting a ‘colonial attitude’ towards Scotland.
The legal advice centres on historical and international precedent whereby the larger state is shown to be the successor state.
Nice old boy Professor Cannaeafford said: “I’m not speaking for the United Kingdom government of course. We are expressing a legal view about what has happened in all of these cases.
“There’s no arrogance involved I hope. My forebears were Scots and I don’t have an opinion about the referendum as such.
“But what we are saying is, the pattern of conduct in these sorts of cases – Quebec and Canada – I advised Canada in relation to the separation of Quebec, which is not a colonial situation at all and would have reached the same conclusion: Quebec would have had to renegotiate its membership of NAFTA for example and apply for membership of the UN.
“That’s simply the way these things are done.”
But Deputy Miss Leader Sturgeon insisted that this breathtaking dose of reality was too much for Nationalists to take.
She wailed: “How dare the UK government cite these impartial legal independent experts to back up their case.
“Who dae they think they ur? The government of the UK? Er, haud oan, don’t answer that.”
