But you said….

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you said in 2014 ‘ don’t vote for independence. If you do Scotland will be banished from the EU single market, leaving you as poor as a third world country.’

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you also said in 2014 ‘Don’t leave us Scotland, instead lead us, we are a partnership of equals.’

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you said in 2015 ‘We must respect that the people of Scotland have voted overwhelmingly for the SNP in the General Election and must work together with them.’

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you said in 2016 ‘We respect the devolved governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We will listen to what they have to say. ‘

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you also said in 2016 “that you wanted to agree with the devolved administrations a UK-wide approach before triggering Article 50.’

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

But you said you would consider any proposals which we put forward to protect Scotland’s place in Europe, reflecting the fact that 62% of Scots who voted in the Brexit referendum voted to remain in the EU.

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.

And then you said in 2017 that in 2014 Scotland voted to remain a part of the United Kingdom, therefore it doesn’t matter that 62% of Scots who voted in the Brexit referendum voted to remain in the EU because the majority of the voters in the UK voted to leave.

In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith?

One thought on “But you said….

  1. But you said….
    In 2017 you say that Scotland has absolutely no mandate to launch a second independence referendum campaign, and if we do we are acting in bad faith.
    But they said in their 2016 Manifesto ‘the Scottish Parliament should have the right to hold another referendum if …. there is a significant and material change in the circumstances that prevailed in 2014, such as Scotland being taken out of the EU against our will.’
    Bad faith? I don’t see it. Seems very clear to me. Mandate ~ Manifesto – Very nearly the same word.

    But you said in 2014 ‘ don’t vote for independence. If you do Scotland will be banished from the EU single market, leaving you as poor as a third world country.’
    But Scotland has all but been banished from the EU by Englandshire anyway. And EFTA. And the Single Market. We’re not a ‘poor third world country’ yet. But you’re taking us there. Quickly!

    But you also said in 2014 ‘Don’t leave us Scotland, instead lead us, we are a partnership of equals.’
    But in 2016 they said in a published document entitled Scotland’s Place in Europe ‘We accept, reluctantly, that we will leave the EU, but look for the UK to stay in the single market or, for the UK to seek an outcome that would allow Scotland to do so.’
    That’s ‘Leadership’, pardners. Equal pardners.

    But you said in 2015 ‘We must respect that the people of Scotland have voted overwhelmingly for the SNP in the General Election and must work together with them.’
    But in 2016 in the new Scotland Act you accepted not one of their amendments. Not one of SNP’s (the people of Scotland’s representatives) amendments. Respect.

    But you said in 2016 ‘We respect the devolved governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We will listen to what they have to say. ‘
    But you’d already said in 2014, 2 minutes after Indygeddon, ‘EVEL – English Votes for English Laws’. Respect.

    But you also said in 2016 “that you wanted to agree with the devolved administrations a UK-wide approach before triggering Article 50.’
    But in 2016 you said that Nissan could have a special post-Brexit deal. Scotland? Whoah there! ‘We need a UK-wide approach’.

    But you said you would consider any proposals which we put forward to protect Scotland’s place in Europe, reflecting the fact that 62% of Scots who voted in the Brexit referendum voted to remain in the EU.
    Er, aye. Cut us a bit of slack, eh? We may have said it, but where’s Trump’s wall? It’s only politics.

    And then you said in 2017 that in 2014 Scotland voted to remain a part of the United Kingdom, therefore it doesn’t matter that 62% of Scots who voted in the Brexit referendum voted to remain in the EU because the majority of the voters in the UK voted to leave.
    And that’s respect, in this new alternative-fact Brave New World of right wing post-Brexit Britain UK Englandshire. Get over it.

    rUK rules, ok.
