Boris Johnson has announced he has agreed a deal with the EU – but the DUP has stated its position still stands and they will oppose it in a vote.

No matter what happens, what is clear is that every single Brexit deal negotiated by the UK Government has ignored the will of Scotland. England and Wales both voted leave and will get to leave the EU. Northern Ireland voted to remain and will get the benefits of being closer to the EU single market.

Despite voting remain, Scotland has not been offered such a special arrangement. We will be dragged from the EU against our will.

The UK Government does not care about Scotland – our will, people or Parliament. With independence, we can take control of our own futures rather than let Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg decide it for us.
