The Scottish Parliament Does Have the Right to Withdraw from the Act of Union


17 Dec, 2018 in Uncategorized by craig

The London Supreme Court last week not only confirmed that the Westminster Parliament could overrule at will any Scottish Government legislation, irrespective of the Scotland Act and the Sewell Convention, but it also ruled that Westminster had already successfully done so, by retrospectively passing provisions in the EU (Withdrawal) Act that overruled the Bill on the same subject, within the competence of the Scottish Parliament, that had already been passed by Holyrood.

Not content with that, the London Supreme Court confirmed that London ministers may, by secondary legislation, under the Scotland Act decree laws for Scotland that are not even passed through the Westminster parliament.

Which leaves Scotland in this extraordinary situation. English MPs or English ministers in their London Parliament can, at any time, impose any legislation they choose on Scotland, overriding Scotland’s parliament and Scotland’s representation in the London parliament. Yet, under the English Votes for English Laws rules of the London Parliament introduced by the Tories in 2015, Scottish MPs cannot vote at all on matters solely affecting England.

That is plainly a situation of colonial subservience.

I am firmly of the view that the Scottish government should now move to withdraw from the Treaty of Union. Scotland’s right to self determination is inalienable. It cannot be signed away forever or restricted by past decisions.

The Independence of a country is not a matter of domestic law it is a matter of international law. The right of the Scottish Parliament to declare Independence may not be restricted by UK domestic law or by purported limitations on the powers of the Scottish Parliament. The legal position is set out very clearly here:

5.5 Consistent with this general approach, international law has not treated the legality of
the act of secession under the internal law of the predecessor State as determining the effect
of that act on the international plane. In most cases of secession, of course, the predecessor
State‟s law will not have been complied with: that is true almost as a matter of definition.

5.6 Nor is compliance with the law of the predecessor State a condition for the declaration
of independence to be recognised by third States, if other conditions for recognition are
fulfilled. The conditions do not include compliance with the internal legal requirements of
the predecessor State. Otherwise the international legality of a secession would be
predetermined by the very system of internal law called in question by the circumstances in
which the secession is occurring.

5.7 For the same reason, the constitutional authority of the seceding entity to proclaim
independence within the predecessor State is not determinative as a matter of international
law. In most if not all cases, provincial or regional authorities will lack the constitutional
authority to secede. The act of secession is not thereby excluded. Moreover, representative
institutions may legitimately act, and seek to reflect the views of their constituents, beyond
the scope of already conferred power.

That is a commendably concise and accurate description of the legal position. Of major relevance, it is the legal opinion of the Government of the United Kingdom, as submitted to the International Court of Justice in the Kosovo case. The International Court of Justice endorsed this view, so it is both established law and the opinion of the British Government that the Scottish Government has the right to declare Independence without the agreement or permission of London and completely irrespective of the London Supreme Court.

I have continually explained on this site that the legality of a Declaration of Independence is in no sense determined by the law of the metropolitan state, but is purely a matter of recognition by other countries and thus acceptance into the United Nations. The UK Government set this out plainly in response to a question from a judge in the Kosovo case:
  • As the United Kingdom stated in oral argument, international law contains no
    prohibition against declarations of independence as such. 1 Whether a declaration of
    independence leads to the creation of a new State by separation or secession depends
    not on the fact of the declaration but on subsequent developments, notably recognition
    by other States. As a general matter, an act not prohibited by international law needs
    no authorization. This position holds with respect to States. It holds also with respect
    to acts of individuals or groups, for international law prohibits conduct of non-State
    entities only exceptionally and where expressly indicated.
As I have stressed, the SNP should now be making a massive effort to prepare other countries, especially in the EU and in the developing world, to recognise Scotland when the moment comes. There is no task more important. There is a worrying lack of activity in this area. It may currently not be possible to spend government money on sending out envoys for this task, but if personal envoys were endorsed by the First Minister they would get access and could easily be crowd funded by the Independence Movement. I am one of a number of former senior British diplomats who would happily undertake this work without pay. We should be lobbying not just the EU but every country in Africa, Asia and South America.

My preferred route to Independence is this. The Scottish Parliament should immediately legislate for a new Independence referendum. The London Government will attempt to block it. The Scottish Parliament should then convene a National Assembly of all nationally elected Scottish representatives – MSPs, MPs and MEPs. That National Assembly should declare Independence, appeal to other countries for recognition, reach agreements with the rump UK and organise a confirmatory plebiscite. That is legal, democratic and consistent with normal international practice.

There will never be a better time than now for Scotland to become an Independent, normal, nation once again. It is no time for faint hearts or haverers; we must seize the moment.

Osmanische Reich der Putschisten, nicht Republik Türkei! Todesmarsch der Armenier. Es waren wieder mal die Deutschen!

Vor und während des 1. Weltkrieges war die Zielsetzung des British Empire die Auflösung der 3 großen regionalen Imperien, nämlich des Habsburger Reiches, Russischen Reiches und Osmanischen Reiches, um der Erdölreserven im Kaukasus habhaft werden zu können. Das Ausmaß der Erdölreserven im Irak und Arabien war noch nicht vollständig bekannt, geschweige den erschlossen.

Mit dem gleichen Ziel hat auch das Deutsche Kaiserreich versucht, in Kooperation mit dem Habsburger Reich und dem Osmanischen Reich gegen Russland vorzugehen und den Briten zuvorzukommen.

In dieser Konstellation haben die Briten, Franzosen und Russen terroristische Gruppen unter den Armeniern, Arabern und anderen Völkern des Osmanischen Reiches heranzuzüchtet und zu bewaffet, um das Reich von innen zu zersetzen.

Angestiftet vom europäischen rassistischen Nationalismus, insbesondere der deutschen Version, unternahmen die sogenannten Jungtürken im Jahre 1913 einen Militärputsch.
Sie ermordeten den Premierminister, brachten den alten Sultan Abdülhamit II. unter Hausarrest und setzen einen Marionennten-Sultan ein.

In völliger Selbstüberschätzung und angestachelt durch ihre deutschen Bündnispartner, unternahmen sie im Winter des Jahres 1914/1915 einen Kriegszug gegen Russland im Kaukasus und verloren ihn katastrophal. Allein über 80.000 Soldaten erfroren im Gebirge kampflos.

Gleichzeitig, bzw. schon vorher bewaffneten Russland und Frankreich armenische Separatisten, die bereits im Gebiet des versprochenen unabhängigen Armenien ethnische Säuberungen durch Massenmorde und Vertreibung der nicht-armenischen Bevölkerung vornahmen.

Nach Beratung mit ihren deutschen Partnern entschieden die Putschisten, dass das Gebiet, wo die Armenier einen wesentlichen Bevölkerungsanteil (maximal etwa 33%) ausmachten, den russichen Einmasch begünstigen würde und die Separtisten nicht unter Kontrolle gebracht werden könnten, solange sie Unterstützung von der Bevölkerung bekämen.

So wurde entschieden, die Armenier vollständig für die Dauer des Krieges aus Anatolien “umzusiedeln”, faktisch zu vertreiben, ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste.
Die Putschisten waren zu der Zeit überhauptnicht in der Lage, eine geordnete Umsiedlung zu organisieren. An allen Fronten des Reiches wurde Krieg geführt.

1913: Die Jungtürken putschen sich in Istanbul an die Macht
https://www.historeo.de/datum/1913-jungtuerken-putsch-in-istanbul

Nach der Niederlage im 1. Weltkrieg wurden die Putschisten in Abwesenheit verurteilt.

Das Osmanische Reich wurde zerteilt und befand sich in völliger Auflösung.

Während der Abspaltungungen im Balkan wurden etwa 1,4 Millionen Menschen, die unter den neuen Nationalstaaten als “Fremde” betrachtet wurden, umgebracht.

Die Überlebenden flüchteten in den noch bestehenden Rest des Osmanischen Reiches, also im wesentlichen das Gebiet um Istanbul und Anatolien.

In einem Folgekrieg des 1. Weltkrieges wurden die Besatzungsmächte besiegt und aus dem heutigen Staatsgebiet der Türkei, mit wesentlicher Waffenhilfe der Sovietunion, vertrieben.

Nach den anfänglichen Erfolgen des griechischen Einmarsches in West-Anatolien und ihrer anschließenden katastrophalen Niederlage, flüchtete fast die gesamte christliche Bevölkerung über das Meer nach Griechenland.

Anschließend wurde auch um weiteren Druck durch das British Empire abzuwehren, das Osmanische Reich juristisch aufgelöst und die Republik Türkei gegründet.

Die Republik Türkei ist also nicht das Osmanische Reich und schon gar nicht der Staat der Putischsten von 1913-1918.

Der Putsch des Jahres 1913 muss als Maßnahme zum Eintritt des Osmanischen Reiches in den Weltkrieg betrachtet werden.

Die Putschisten gehörten alle einer Freimaurerloge an.

Übrigens wurden die weiterhin bestehenden Reste der Partei der Putschisten im Jahre 1926 gesäubert, indem die noch lebenden Rädelsführer hingerichtet wurden.

Sowohl beim Putsch von 1913, als auch beim Kriegseintritt gegen Russland und dem Todesmarsch der Armenier waren immer die Deutschen beteiligt.

Das Genozid an den Armeniern ist also mehr den Deutschen anzulasten, als den Türken oder den anderen Völkern des ehemaligen Osmanischen Reiches.

Man muss sich mal vorstellen, dass ein Großteil der Bevölkerung in Anatolien selbst auf der Flucht war. Die Menschen waren weder am Putsch, noch am Todesmarsch beteiligt. Sicher gab es kriminelle die sich an den Flüchtlingen bereichert haben, aber allein die Entscheidung zur “Umsiedlung” durch die Putschisten und Deutschen war ein Todesurteil für diese Menschen.

Eine Sippenhaft der überlebenden Bevölkerung, die sich dann in der neuen Republik wiederfand, ist nicht angebracht.

If you don’t think that war is the worst thing in the world, it’s only because you haven’t looked closely enough at exactly what it is and how it works. Wars always necessarily involve not just mountains of human corpses, but lives ruined forever, bodies ripped apart, brains permanently destroyed by neurological trauma and minds permanently destroyed by psychological trauma, millions displaced from their homes, rape and slavery and human trafficking rising exponentially in the chaos, extremist factions rising to power and inflicting unspeakable evils on people. The suffering that is inflicted by every one of these military operations which get promoted by middle-aged men in DC think tanks in a casual tone of voice with the occasional joke mixed in, the suffering is literally unfathomable.
