Yet another SNP climbdown?

The article 'Russell admits secession poll lacks support' smacks of yet another SNP climbdown, this time over their much vaunted separation referendum proposal - click on the headline to view the full article in today's "Scotland on Sunday."

Meanwhile the "Sunday Times" reports 'SNP backs down over drinks curbs' - another SNP policy down the drain, following hot on the heels of the local income tax retreat. Oh yes, and £2000 to every new home buyer, dumping student debt, etc, etc ...

Personally, I'd welcome the SNP Government abandoning its referendum proposal - a total irrelevance in the current economic situation - but it does make one wonder if anyone will ever again vote for a party that has simply binned most of its manifesto promises.
