Does Jeremy Corbyn secretly back Scottish independence, 

In an interview with Huffpost UK, MP Mhairi Black Black revealed that Corbyn had admitted supporting independence in a private conversation with the Paisley MP.
She went on to say that she felt "let down" by him. 

The SNP MP was unwilling to say much more on the subject, other than that she knew after speaking with him that 

"he did not accept the Labour Party policy of keeping Scotland within the Union."
She concluded

“I’m raging at Jeremy.”
“He has totally sold his soul, especially in terms of Scotland.”

She attacked him for pledging to keep Trident, allowing Welsh Labour to hike up tuition fees in Wales and not promising to undo all of Theresa May’s austerity measures, adding 
“he is hypocritical about what arguments he applies where and when.”
In the Huffpost UK interview, Black stated: 

“He is hypocritical about what arguments he applies where and when.
“It really annoys me when people get credit when the reality is different.
“I was excited by Jeremy Corbyn for the same reason as all the Labour membership were, but since he has got into that position of power, what’s he done?
“He has had unelected lords in his cabinet. He’s had scandal upon scandal, and don’t get me wrong, I get that there is a whole lot of backbenchers against Jeremy, but he has sold his soul.
“He has sold out in terms of austerity. He has sold out in terms of Scottish independence – because I know that he doesn’t believe the things he says about independence now.”
Labour rejected the claim, branding it as "complete nonsense".
Labour  of course deny Ms Black claims and i suppose you could argue that "not accepting the Labour Party policy of keeping Scotland within the Union."  is the same as favouring Independence as opposed to it.

Corbyn has not much of a record Pro- or Anti  Independence for Scotland and I sometimes wonder if he regards Cymru as a nation at all.

He has been vocal like many on the Left of Labour over a United Ireland, something that does appear to be hypocritical to me.

Indeed Corbyn has seemingly even failed to call for the infamous Vow nearly four years old which saw all then main Unionist leaders , promising more powers for Scotland if they rejected Independence in the referendum.


Of course none of the signatories are even in the Westminster  Parliament  and maybe there is an argument that May, Corbyn and Cable are not bound by it.

But it say's a lot for the now Labour leader  that he has failed to come up with a new proposals for ongoing devolution.

Indeed his whole Brexit position which has seen the   Welsh Labour Government capitulation in handing powers back to Westminster after Brexit,leads him open to crticism that he is giving tacit support for similar power grab from Scotland.

Of course I don't want the Labour Leader in Westminster to direct policy in their "branch offices" in Edinburgh  or Cardiff, but as the whole devolution settlement is threatened by a Union Jack waving Tory part which is moving even more to the right is it not time the Leader of the Opposition at least speak out if not for Independence but implementing the nearly four year old "Vow".
