she says if the uk supreme court rules that holyrood cannot hold another referendum without westminster agreement, the snp will stand at the next westminster election on one question "a de facto referendum".

it has echoes of the 1918 irish general election.

They had a vote in 2014 and said No. it’s the one thing i agree with Boris Johnson on it’s too early for them to have another vote as it’s only 8 years since the last one. That result surely has to be respected for a generation.

One of the key messages of the No campaign in 2014 was "Vote yes and you'll be out of the EU and you won't get back in".

Brexit has changed everything and accelerated things both in terms of a 2nd Scottish independence ref and the prospect of a United Ireland referendum here as well

A lot of lazy journalism is coming out with the narrative that a United Ireland is somehow linked to Scottish independence when it isn’t. A untied Ireland referendum will happen one day with or without Scottish independence. Successive Irish governments have been in no rush though to get things moving that’s why it’s still a long way off in my view.

Scottish independance should it happen will accelerate a united ireland , most rational observers would agree on this so am not sure why you cant see the link

It just seems some of those observers have only realised a United Ireland is on the table because of the push for Scottish independence when it’s actually in place since the Good Friday 1998 agreement

They must be hoping for a huge turn around, because I think they said that only 45% are in favour of it at the moment. 
I would have thought they would have waited till over 50% in the polls to make the decision. 
If Boris doesn't agree to it it might spur them on too. Why should they be taking orders from him?

It's a few percentage points more than that...even still that's quite a good platform to start from when you consider they started at ~27% in favour of independence in 2014 and got it up 45% the day of the vote. You'd just have to hope they've learned their lessons from 2014 and have the economic argument nailed down this time. Pensioners is what cost them and the failure to convince them they'd be Ok if they voted for independence.
