Independence: ‘Scots could see second referendum’ – and a third

This Scotsman report that Gordon Wilson is proposing a second referendum on the euro and other matters, reminds me there is yet another issue requiring a referendum.

The Scottish Government recently proposed that after a YES vote, a Scottish Constitutional Convention would draft a new constitution for Scotland. At some point this would have to be be ratified though no mention was made as to how this should be done. Since WWII, the majority of the World’s new constitutions have been ratified by referendum in an act of national unity. I would expect the same to happen in Scotland especially given the prior use of referendums in its constitutional development – 1979, 1997 and 2014.

By the way, Wilson’s referendums should be described as multiple referendums not a single multi-option referendum (which would deal with only one issue).
