In order for a legally binding vote on Scottish independence two key things need to happen:
1. The Scots must want the vote.
2. The British Government has to agree to it.
Both things were in place last time, neither are in place presently and the second part may well not be in place for many, many years.
As I say, a decision on IndyRef2 has implications on the whole of the UK, hence why part 2 is as important as part 1.
Of course it is. But you are arguing that if, in response to changed circumstances since 2014, a majority of Scots decide they want a referendum and independence they should be denied because they had a referendum some time in the past.
How does that opinion sit with the notion of democracy?
I'm certain that if England had been kept in the EU by Scotland there would now be an unstoppable clamour for a further referendum if there remained an English majority to leave..
