Boris Johnson versus Scotland’s right to choose

Nicola Sturgeon:

1/ Tories are terrified of Scotland’s right to choose – because they know that when given the choice we’ll choose independence. Tories have no positive case for the union – so all they can do is attempt to deny democracy. It will not stand.

2/ The problem for the Tories is the longer they try to block democracy, the more they show the Westminster union is not one of equals and fuel support for independence. This response predictable – but also unsustainable and self defeating. Scotland will have the right to choose.

3/ @scotgov  will set out our response and next steps before the end of this month – when we will also again ask @ScotParl  to back Scotland’s right to choose our own future.

It looks like Johnson will succeed on enabling the United Kingdom to be independent of the European Union, but opposes Scotland’s right to choose whether to be independent of England.

    Once the UK is independent again Scotland will probably discover it doesn’t want to pay its own way in the world and the EU is unwilling to take it on.

    Looks like Nicola is following W Wallace/R Bruce.. Scottish Independence, without another ‘battle of Bannockburn’ : “FREEDOM !” 😀

    There must be an election coming up for [deleted] Sturgeon. She played the independence card masterfully during the most recent national election, as ‘exit polls’ had shown during the EU referendum that something like 30% of SNP supporters voted for Brexit, so by shouting independence she was able to avoid leakage of her partys votes to the Conservatives

      Salmon was the previous SNP leader… the deleted part was just to emphasize the two were peas in a pod
