    Constitutional situation

    The Scottish Democratic Alliance believes that a fundamental reappraisal of the Scottish constitutional situation in its broadest sense is a matter of urgent and vital importance. On looking around it is hard to remember that it was Scots who taught the world constitutional government, because the level of constitutional illiteracy in the country is quite staggering. It is not simply a lack of knowledge of a fundamental law, but a lack of even the most basic sense of propriety in the conduct of public affairs. In what other country in the civilised world would or could a handful of politicians decide to build a new parliament building without as much as asking the elected representatives (in Westminster or Edinburgh) whether they wanted one? And, furthermore, have no sense of having done anything wrong?

    They don't Elda... but the point is that they should and the SDA are working on providing one for Scotland.
