Congratulations to our re-elected MP David Mundell for wining this election. I want him to clarify what his personal position is on his party’s (Conservative and Unionists) stance on forming a formal/informal coalition with the DUP which has links to terrorism in Northern Ireland. This alliance, if goes ahead is very likely to break the Good Friday Agreement that was signed by all parties that had a say in the governing of Northern Ireland going forward and the ceasing of violence from both sides. Theresa May lost her mandate for a tough Brexit negotiations stance by the British public and should have resigned like Alex Salmond First Minister of Scotland; who did after losing the vote in 2014. But, as we now know we are dealing with power hungry Politicians like Mr. Mundell and his counterpart Ruth Davidson who are using the Unionist media to declare that the SNP have lost and the people no longer want a 2nd divisive Independence referendum!
Just to make this very clear, the SNP gained 35 seats and are still by far the largest party in Scotland even after taking into account all the Labour/Lib-Dem and Tory votes! These guys are so full of themselves that they seem to forget basic math’s and are all over the place claiming victory in Scotland and that Independence is dead!
If Mr. Mundell is so sure of acting upon the peoples mandate then he should advise his leader to step down gracefully rather than be dragged in the coming weeks or months from Westminister.
Finally, I would like to thank the voters of Mr. Mundell’s constituency for voting to keep the SNP out and unwittingly letting in a Terrorist organization, to support a minority Tory government. The DUP are the equivalent of ISIS i.e. they want to bring in laws from the old testament and are scathing about their feelings towards gays, immigrants and women’s rights. If we are not careful, we could end up with “Southern Scotland” a place very similar to “Northern Ireland” that was created by the British Establishment through their divide and rule policy in Ireland. Scotland will become Independent and it would be interesting to wait and see how this will unfold in the coming years. You! The voter will decide the future of your country.
