    Default SNP Green Labour liberal : Has refused to grant permission to the UK government for the first time...

    " Scotland refused to consent to Mrs May's flagship Brexit Bill too - the EU Withdrawal Bill - as part of a row over devolution after Brexit.

    The Scottish government is at odds with Westminster over powers that will come back to Britain from Brussels after we leave - and voted by 93 votes to 30 to reject it in Holyrood this afternoon."

    Legally meaningless as Sewell is not enforceable. Scotland Act only says Westminster is not to 'normally' legislate on devolved matters.

    Its not about WMs right to legislate on devolved matters but its right to legislate for prospective devolved powers where those devolved matters intersect with EU law, while the UK is still a member state. This is by no means clear hence the referral to the Supreme Court.

    You managed to get that totally the wrong way round.

    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty
