The increasing shift to the right by the Tory party is extremely worrying. The Tories have more in common with Trump than they care to admit. We’re about to get a Prime Minister that isn’t so embarrassed to publicly align himself with Trump’s racism.
The nationalism that many people in the Scottish independence movement advocate is inclusive. It welcomes everyone. It does not support vans or statements which tell people to “go home”. It does not assign rights based on the colour of peoples’ skin or where they were born. It envisions a country where anyone can build a life, find a home, and have a family.
Scottish independence is about the people who call Scotland their home making the decisions which affect Scotland – and everyone is welcome.
