The people of Scotland will vote in referendum after referendum until they get it right, the SNP have promised.

The pledge was made during the Scottish leader’s debate, where it was met by what might have sounded like enthusiastic cheering if that’s what you’d already decided you were going to hear.

Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that they would hold referenda as often as it takes to get the answer she wants, and then the subject would be dropped and never asked again.

All the referenda would be paid for by the English, she added.

Audience reaction was mixed, with The National newspaper reporting that at least one person clapped.

However, ordinary Scots seemed keen on the proposals for endless referenda until the SNP get the result they want.

“The last referendum campaign was a really positive social experience”, said Michael Gilhoolie of Arran.

“My neighbours hate me, my wife won’t talk to me, and I received extensive personal abuse from strangers on the Internet.”

“Why would I not want to go through all that again right away? Bring it on.”
