Westminster is in chaos after May’s deal suffered another catastrophic defeat. Scotland’s voice is being ignored again. The BBC cut away just as Ian Blackford was starting to speak TWICE in the same day. A UK representative explained to Nicola Sturgeon and Michael Russell that they were “not bright enough” to understand the Brexit deal.
We’re being insulted, sidelined, ignored, and taken for granted. This so-called union and its failing institutions are failing Scotland, even on their own terms. Remember all the grand promises made to Scotland by Better Together in 2014, remember all the fine words and honeyed voices, and compare them with what has actually been delivered. Remember them the next time that opponents of independence promise a fine future for Scotland within the UK.
Here Scotland is, teetering on the brink of a British made catastrophe, and parts of the Scottish press prefer to print warnings against a Scottish currency made by opponents of independence who warned in 2014 against keeping the pound. This is a shameful shambles, and Scotland needs a pro-independence newspaper more than ever.
