IndyLive Chat - Say Hello 
Dougie Bendall
I used to say later for IndyRef, now I think sooner, strike while UK BritNat parties are at their weakest
PaulCooper
As soon as we are sure to win it. No point having too early if that means we won't get another real chance for 30 years
Dougie Bendall
Strike hard and fast, expose the lies, hammer home the toxicity of the union
ESFY - Jan G
I'd like it sooner. However it's unlikely we'll have anything in place to hold one before October and that gets problematic. Turnout between Oct-April is notoriously low which will give more weight to postal votes
PaulCooper
So late next year might be a realistic time.
RonnieR
Aye that's my worry as well ... this really could be a once-in-a-generation if we fail again sad However Nicola's canny and has more information than we have so happy to go with he call
ESFY - Jan G
Because of that I think next May would be best
RonnieR
I suppose it is also affected by when the UK eventually leaves the EU 'cos we don't want Scotland outside of the EU for too long
PaulCooper
Ronnie agreed
IndyPram - Ray
Good article Dougie. With reference to having Nicola Sturgeon not having been on IndyLive.Radio, she has been asked to take part in an IndyPram podcast. I'm still waiting for a reply but time will tell.
ESFY - Jan G
Assuming we do actually leave EU on 31st Oct I can foresee a big swing to independence once the effects of tariffs etc start to bite.
PaulCooper
Jan, particular if we leave without a deal.
IndyLive Radio - Kevin
good point Jan although no more protection from EU once we are out
XSticks
If we crash out of Europe and lose any ECJ oversight of UK matters then London will use the UK supreme court to prevent indyref. They will tie us up legally just like Madrid is doing to Catalonia.
ESFY - Jan G
true, but because UK isn't member they are not bound by rules on not interfering in internal politics of member states
XSticks
Yes, but all Europe will be able to do is to say they support Scottish indepdence and that they would give us easy entry IF we choose independence. That will be no good if we can't get indyref from London. Only UDI then
XSticks
Bye guys. Excellent show as always.
RonnieR
Bye all ... good show yet again smile
ESFY - Jan G
EU isn;t the only body that could give us protection and help us to get a valid referendum.
IndyPram - Ray
UDI is a no-no. General election manifesto based purely upon Independence. Scottish Assembly called. Elected Scottish MP's vote for independence. Take to United Nations.
ESFY - Jan G
I don't believe UDI is a valid route. It's almost guaranteed to result in violence
XSticks
I'm not advocating UDI - I also think it will be a very fraught and difficult route, but esentially the Scottish Assembly/Electoral mandate/UN *is* UDI#
IndyLive Radio - Kevin
