Political contradictions

Hugh Lofting's illustration of the Pushmepullyou in "Doctor Dolittle"

The SNP wants independence for Scotland, but not the UK.

Members of Parliament are hustling for our vote on 7th May to re-validate their right to control us for the succeeding 1,825 days; but virtually all of them think we should not have the right to validate our membership of the EU.

Can the system contain these contradictions, or will it tear itself apart under the strain?
