3. The Unionist side in Scotland hasn't shut up about independence since the last referendum!

Seriously, they banged on about it much more than the SNP did till the Brexit vote, and it's been a close-run thing even since then.

The SNP's been more focused on seeing what sort of deals it can wring out of Brexit and the nitty-gritty of day-to-day governance. Going for another independence referendum is the last resort (or thereabouts), all else having apparently failed, and not for want of trying.

The SNP obviously had the possibility of a referendum as part of its last manifesto commitment if it didn't get a decent accommodation from Westminster, and it's no great secret, but the truth is, the other parties up here have very little else to offer, and haven't delivered while in control of the councils.
