Readers will be aware that there is currently a constitutional stalemate between the Scottish and UK governments over the issue of consent.
In this clip from the Finance and Constitution Committee, Scottish Secretary David Mundell doesn’t do a very good job in placating the fears of Holyrood.
- consent is given even if all members of the Scottish Parliament reject a Westminster proposal.
- that Mundell is happy with this partly because Labour also think it’s a reasonable way to define consent; and
- that this is what Scotland voted for when it rejected independence in 2014.
