The choice Scotland faces today is very different to the choice Scotland faced in 2014.
- Scotland now faces being dragged out of Europe against our will – despite being told to vote No in 2014 to stay in the European Union.
- Brexit will have a negative impact on Scotland – with fewer jobs, fewer opportunities and households left worse off.
- Scotland faces the very real prospect of a No Deal Brexit and a hard Brexiteer like Boris Johson being installed in No. 10. Scotland must be able to choose an alternative.
🏴 Scotland deserves better than this group of embarrassing, incompetent Tories.
🗳️ It’s time for Scotland to decide our own future.https://t.co/bVucTjiPQK

Brexit has shown, once and for all, that Westminster isn’t working.
- The UK political system is deeply dysfunctional and has ground to a halt due to Brexit.
- A new Prime Minister won’t be chosen by ordinary voters in Scotland but by a few thousand members of the Conservative Party.
- Scotland’s place in Brexit Britain is damaging our international reputation and causing uncertainty to thousands of our European citizens.
⛔️ Tory leadership candidates are lurching further to the extremes, as they outdo each other to cause maximum damage to Scotland.

Promises made to Scotland during the 2014 referendum were never kept.
- Scottish voters were told they could protect their EU citizenship by rejecting independence in 2014 – now we’re being dragged out of Europe against our will.
- We were told by voting No we could build a more equal society across the UK. Now the United Nations says UK welfare policy is “tragic” and inflicting “great misery” on our citizens.
- Labour said there was no need for independence because they would sweep to power and sort everything out – Labour finished in 5th place in Scotland at the most recent election.
- They said staying in the UK would protect our NHS – now the NHS is ‘on the table’ in a trade deal with Donald Trump.
🚨 Donald Trump: “When you’re dealing in trade, everything’s on the table. So NHS, or anything else. A lot more than that.”
👎 This is the Brexit future the Tories want to drag Scotland into.

Voters have consistently given the SNP a mandate to deliver a referendum on Scotland’s future.
- This mandate has been reinforced through consecutive elections – most recently with the SNP winning its best ever result in Europe.
- It’s not just the SNP – a majority in the Scottish Parliament has also agreed to deliver a referendum on Scottish independence.
- At the European Elections, the Tories stood on an explicit platform to stop a second independence referendum – their message was totally rejected by Scottish voters, giving the Tories their worst ever result.
🚨 May and the Tories think that they can ignore Scotland and block us from having a democratic choice on our future.
🗳 Scotland has a mandate to hold a referendum on independence.

Independence is an exciting opportunity for Scotland to take a different path.
- Scotland has already demonstrated what can be done with the limited powers of devolution, from free university tuition and prescriptions to world-leading green energy initiatives and baby boxes for all new parents. With the full powers of independence, Scotland could do so much more.
- An independent Scotland would play its full part in the international community, participating in cross-border initiatives and making its voice heard in the European Union.
- Independence is an opportunity to bolster our representative democracy, bringing an end to unelected Tory governments at Westminster – with independence Scottish voters will always get the governments we vote for.
🏴 Westminster isn’t working for Scotland. We’ve been ignored too often. It’s time for a fresh start – to choose a different and better path.
