UK Gov were never going to simply shut down the Scottish Parl they were always going to effectively achieve the same result in an underhand way. That’s what the Internal Market Bill achieves. It allows UK Gov to control everything that happens in Scotland.

Devolution is dead.
To the fervent Unionist supporters who have responded with glee. You fail to recognise it is actions like this which drive the support for Independence further in front. We are where we are now, due in large part, because of the actions of UK. Which is Indy the majority view.
UK Gov actions will undoubtedly polarise even further the Independence question. But ardent Unionists don’t seem to realise it was a promise of further powers and devolution that swung the vote. They might be happy for Holyrood to be a parish council but the majority are not.
