The election you really weren’t expecting

IT WASN’T very long ago that it genuinely seemed just about possible that the SNP wouldn’t have to face another election before independence, or at least before Scotland had decided to become independent. The next Holyrood election wasn’t due until 2021, and the pro-indy parties had (and still have) a clear mandate to call an indyref before then. Although the parliamentary arithmetic at Westminster meant there was always a possibility of another snap general election, there seemed a reasonable chance for a long while that Theresa May or her successor would be able to hold out until 2022. The next Scottish local elections weren’t due until the same year. And although the UK was scheduled to take part in the European Parliament elections in May of this year, the triggering of the Article 50 process was carefully timed to ensure that Brexit would be completed two months before then.
