Carmichael warns SNP: don’t aim for Indyref 2 because voters were ‘too stupid’ in September

The SNP must stop manoeuvring for a second independence referendum “that implies people were too stupid to get the answer right the first time,” according to Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael.

Peter A Bell‘s insight:

I guess we all recognise that Alistair Carmichael is not the shiniest bauble on the Christmas tree. But would anybody have expected him to be such a fool as to suggest that the Scottish electorate are stupid. Because he is the one casting this aspersion. Nobody from the SNP or the wider independence campaign has ever suggested such a thing.

To the extent that the SNP is “manoeuvring for a second independence referendum” they are doing so for one very simple reason – people are demanding another referendum.

The SNP is responding to the public mood. The Secretary of State for Portsmouth seems totally unfamiliar with the concept.
