The First Minister said there was a case for increasing the number of MSPs that sit at Holyrood should Scotland become independent. She made her remarks when addressing the Political Studies Association in Glasgow.
When asked if independence would need a larger Holyrood, the First Minister replied: “Would an independent Scotland need a bigger parliament? I think there is an argument...Yes...that it would. Although that would be a matter for the parliament itself to debate and decide.”
Ms Sturgeon said she thought an independent Scotland would “not necessarily (need) a massively bigger parliament.” She also acknowledged that there would be those who would make arguments “counter to that”.
She added: “There is some debate right now. The new Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament has set up a commission to look at reform that might appropriate for parliament given the powers we are currently implementing in Scotland. There is a live debate already about the size of the parliament and the structure and I am sure it will continue to be so.
“But, in short, yes, I think there is a case to be made but I think we would have a fairly lively debate about it before the parliament came to a decision.”



Oh FFS, we've already got more MSPs than the US has senators. The last thing a country of five million people needs is more useless troughers being kept by the public purse.

ROWDY Leicester City fans taunted their Spanish rivals in Madrid as they clashed with cops ahead of tonight’s Champions League match.

Footage has emerged showing some supporters chanting “you Spanish b*******, Gibraltar is ours” while smoke bombs and flares were let off in a litter-strewn square.




Some Leicester City fans could be heard shouting 'Gibraltar is ours' at Madrid supporters

Maybe if they all hummed Ode to Joy.......

All part and parcel of the dumbing-down, Lily. Oh, and before he was an MP, Wishart was keyboard player in Runrig.



What greater qualification could there be? On the bright side, he's another one who'll be booted out of his semi-rural constituency in 2020.

Denmark 'potentially most affected' by Brexit: PM.

The leaders of the Netherlands, Ireland and Denmark stressed the need for "unity" Friday as the three northern European countries seek to minimise the impact of Britain's divorce from the EU.

The remaining 27 EU countries are set to rubber-stamp negotiating guidelines from the EU President Donald Tusk at a European Council summit on April 29.

"Our countries are potentially among the countries which will be most affected by the Brexit," Denmark’s prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen told a joint press conference.

"We need to reduce the damages of Brexit as much as possible and build a new working relationship."

Denmark, Ireland and The Netherlands are all heavily dependent on trade with Britain.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the EU needed to "act in concert" during the Brexit negotiations, saying "unity" was in everyone's best interests.

"We will need to have as 27 countries a unified position with one negotiator working on behalf of all of us," he said, after talks in The Hague with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and his Danish counterpart Rasmussen.

A Dutch government think-tank warned last year before Britain's referendum that Brexit could cost The Netherlands a 1.2-percent fall in GDP by 2030 and a 10-billion-euro trade loss.

Given the extent of trade between our three countries and the United Kingdom, it's very important that there will be clarity and movement to those issues as soon as it's appropriate," said Kenny.

"We want to minimise any major impact to our economy as with the Netherlands and Denmark."

Rutte stressed that some of the burning issues were the status of EU citizens living in Britain, as well as European business located there, Britain's potential Brexit "bill" and the issue of borders.

Kenny, who recently met the Spanish, Polish, Belgian and German leaders, said: "We want to protect jobs, we want to grow jobs and increase prosperity.

"We want to provide as much clarity and certainty for businesses from our three countries about trade with United Kingdom," he added.

Ireland is also particularly concerned by the borders question as it shares a land border with Britain to its north.

But Kenny highlighted: "The agenda of the European Union is beyond Brexit... with opportunities for expansion, job creation, investment and above all continued peace, and that should not be derailed by the Brexit negotiations."

Danish minister: 'We will not pay more' to EU after Brexit

Minister of Finance Kristian Jensen says he is determined that Britain’s imminent exit from the EU will not mean more expensive membership for Denmark.

The Scandinavian country currently benefits from a membership discount due to the contribution made by the UK for its membership. Link.
