#NorthBelfast From today #JohnFinucane has caught up with Dodds in the betting stakes, now neck in neck -looks like Finucane could pull ahead as momentum
seems to be building for his anti-Brexit/pro-remain message! #SouthBelfast Doesn’t look good for E.Little-Pengelly in 3rd spot

% correct-#SouthBelfast is drifting further by the day from the #Dup grasp as it now seems the #UUP are up for a scrap there after being intimidated out of the #NorthBefast fight by loyalist paramilitaries-a dish serve cold it seems in SB.

No UK Devolution Post-Brexit?

the mirror@wordpress.com

Although PM May warned a no-deal Brexit could mean Irish unity, PM Johnson seems determined to hold NI and Scotland  in the UK’s stranglehold – though treating each differently.

If he is re-elected with a Conservative majority his E. U. Withdrawal Bill (WAB) states ” There is no restriction on 8C powers being used to amend or repeal the Scotland Act 1998, the Government of Wales Act 2006 or the Northern Ireland Act 1998″.

Remember: Power devolved is power retained.

Query: Does that mean abolishing Hollyrood?
Possibly. More probably, it will mean gradually whittling down Scotland’s powers

What will Scotland do?
Take giant steps towards independence? The Scots are bound to realise it’s all over for them otherwise. Even if they vote for 59 SNP MPs, they will continue as always as a minority in Westminster. They have no voice on English issues due to EVEL. On anything else…
