It was astonishing to see Scotland treated badly at Westminster with regards to only 15 minutes been allocated to debate Scottish objections to the Tories EU withdrawal bill.
24 powers will be coming back to the UK after Brexit but all will be going to Westminster instead of Scotland, in areas already devolved to Holyrood. The SNP’s leader was barred from the chamber for a day for protesting the lack of time to debate the merits and objections to the bill, while his fellow SNP colleagues followed him out. It was blatantly clear to all who watched the session how degrading it was to watch the Speaker John Bercow and the Tories jeering the SNP MP’s who decided to walk out of the House of Commons in protest for the lack of respect shown to a country that was supposedly an equal part of the Union!
Better Together! Is this how an equal partnership works where we are always shafted by Westminster when it comes to devolution? To all Unionist out there, you have to remember one fact, which is, the United Kingdom is made up of four countries i.e. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It was very clear for all to see what the elite and Westminster really thinks of equality in terms of the UK. It was appalling to watch Tory MP Ian Liddell-Grainger shout “suicide” when SNP Leader Ian Blackford asked what options are available to us in this house?
To make matter worse the Unionist/Monarchist/ Benefit Scrounger of all Scottish secretaries, David Mundell said, “Scotland is not a partner of the United Kingdom, Scotland is part of the United Kingdom”.
What a load of bull s***!
In one statement he exposed himself and the Unionist argument’s biggest lie that was at the heart of the “Better Together” campaign during the 2104 Scottish Independence Referendum; that Scotland was an equal and valued partner in the biggest political union on this planet!
David Mundell does not care about Scotland, and will do everything to delay or worsen the situation of his constituents and fellow Scots. Its time for some direct action to make people like him accountable to all of his constituents, not just those who blindly voted for him.
Finally, we do have to remember that he is only there for the money and power and like the Monarchy he supports he is MP/Scottish Secretary at Westminster while his son Oliver Mundell is MSP at Holyrood. Its a family affair after all, where you only look after your own.
R.I.P. United Kingdom!
