Long pub wait for another Indyref round?

A YEAR after the referendum the landmark Gellions pub in Inverness city centre now displays a new signboard at at its entrance: “Indyref2: We’re Not Done Yet”.

This is a successor to the chalkboard it displayed for a year-and-and-half marking off the days to September 18 last year.

The Gellions is no doubt reflecting the views of a significant number of its nationalist clientele. They’d probably like another referendum next week, and if they lost that, another one the week after.

However Nicola Sturgeon has made it clear that she’s extremely cautious and they could have a long time to wait.

The Gellions is a lively hostelry and it’s keeping a seemingly inevitable debate going. But there’s no daily countdown towards “Indyref2”, that’s for sure. I just wonder how jaded and faded that new signboard could look before “Indyref2” day dawns, that’s assuming it eventually will.
