      I have no idea what the requisite standard is in Scottish law, but that would be a very difficult case to win over here, especially given that none of the verdicts were unanimous.

        Thanks, again. TBH, I'm really still none the wiser as to what separates the two factions unless it's that one side is a bit more cautious in its pursuit of Scottish independence than the other.

          I think that's it, as well as the normal personality clashes you get in any long term grouping.

            It strikes me as classic personality/clientilist factional politics of the kind one sees in Japan's LDP

                However, Plaid don't play to that gallery. It seems such an obvious thing. Use the same slogans. "After Snowdonia Saturday it's time for Wales to take back control" etc

                  Never mind that shite. Being part of the Union means Dominic Cummings can have a good go at killing your mam while trying to prove an ideological point. This is surely the thing that can't be forgiven or condoned.

                    It's also a division on gender self id. Generally the Cherry/Salmond faction is more amenable to Trumpist/Wings over Scotland populism, puts independence above all else (at least until Covid)

                      There's a material difference between Welsh people worried about English holiday home owners turning rural communities into holiday-let ghost towns then turning up en masse to overwhelm massively overstretched public services during a pandemic and the anti migrant sentiment that drove brexit imo

                        Just a tad.

                        Llandovery has been suffering from bikers during this crisis, it's just fucking ridiculous.
