Boris Johnson has just been appointed Prime Minister, not by the people of the UK, nor by the people of Scotland, but by Tory members.
Voters have consistently given the SNP a mandate to deliver an independence referendum. The Scottish Parliament has agreed to deliver it. Tories have never been given mandate to block it – not even once.
In 2014, Scotland was promised the ‘best of both worlds’ whilst being an ‘equal partner’ within the union. Well, it’s not quite worked out like that.
Donald Trump: “When you’re dealing in trade, everything’s on the table. So NHS, or anything else. A lot more than that.”
Two diverging paths. Two futures. Scotland must have a choice.
Ruth Davison is now claiming that referendum on Scottish independence *should* be blocked. She is also on record as saying that it *shouldn’t* be blocked.
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.
As an independent country, Scotland’s future will be in Scotland’s hands. Together, we can make Scotland the country we all know it can be.
