From NATION CYMRU yesterday:
A second referendum in Scotland is “likely” before 2025 and Wales must prepare for it by holding its own constitutional convention, the First Minister has said.
Mark Drakeford told the Morning Star that the Welsh Government would be pressing ahead with the convention “to make sure we do the thinking on what choices” would be available to Wales.
“The fragility of the United Kingdom is very real and our convention is designed to make sure we do the thinking on what choices there are on that future.
“The membership and terms of reference will be announced in the next few weeks and will include a very strong strand of citizens’ voices in the work of the commission.”
His comments puts the Welsh Labour leader slightly at odds with Scottish Labour, whose official position is that there will not be another independence referendum until at least the next set of devolved elections.https://nation.cymru/news/wales-must-prepare-for-likely-second-independence-referendum-in-scotland-before-2025-says-drakeford/
What does Labour plan for Scotland?
Gordon Brown is to return to politics to lead a commission tasked with settling “the future of the union”, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said.
The former Prime Minister will re-examine the devolution settlement and devise a ‘second phase’ of the transfer of powers from Westminster to Holyrood.https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19613897.gordon-brown-lead-commission-settle-future-union—-starmer/
Citizen’s voices in Scotland? No, Gordon will settle it for us. Slightly at odds? Different planet.
