Last night, Westminster voted to drag Scotland out of the EU against the expressed will of the Scottish people. The democratic deficit in the UK is as stark as it ever has been with only one Scottish MP voting for Brexit.
Scotland was promised that our access to the EU would be secure in the UK and that Scotland would be an “equal partner”. It is apparent that this was a lie.
The Scottish Government has outlined a number of compromises to keep Scotland in the single market. However, The Tory Government refuses to listen. As a result, Scotland’s economy and social fabric will be torn apart. The UK Government must respect Scotland’s will.
