SCOTLAND’S RIGHT REFUSED

14th January 2020

BORIS JOHNSON REFUSES FIRST MINISTER NICOLA STURGEON’S, REQUEST FOR INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM

Boris Johnson is continuing to ignore Scotland’s right to determine our own future. Instead, he will decide it for us.

The people of Scotland have expressed their right to self-determination in the 2016 Scottish election, 2017 General Election, 2019 EU elections, and the 2019 General Election.

The clearest mandate was given in December when the SNP won a higher percentage of seats and votes in Scotland than the Tories did across the UK. There is a stronger mandate for an independence referendum than there is for a Tory government.

Instead of giving a positive case for the UK, Tories – and Labour – are trying to block Scotland having a say.

Whether you voted yes or no, leave or remain, and whether you have changed your mind since, we must protect Scotland’s right to decide our own future – not have it decided for us.

It’s not Boris Johnson’s choice. It’s Scotland’s choice.
