Perth Concert Hall, October 19, 2012. The SNP was split pretty much down the middle on a decision that seemed key to the prospect of their dreams of an independent Scotland becoming a reality.
The Conservative who will be installed as David Mundell’s Scotland Office deputy despite losing out on a parliamentary seat by 21 votes has said SNP ministers should get a seat at the Brexit negotiating table.
Politics is shades of grey, or at least it used to be.
SNP activists will debate a second independence referendum at the party’s conference – centred on EU membership.
The polls closed and Fife’s decision had been made as the result of the region’s stake in the historic EU referendum were calculated. The Michael Woods Leisure Centre in Glenrothes was a hive of activity as the first ballot boxes arrived for counting shortly after 10pm.
