Nicola Sturgeon says Scotland can’t be imprisoned in the UK, but clearly it can. By committing to the Section 30 process she has acknowledged that Boris Johnston has the power to effectively veto Scotland’s right of self-determination. It may be a “perversion” of democracy. But he can still do it. And, I dare say, without losing a moment’s sleep over having perverted democracy.
Nicola Sturgeon says it’s for the Scottish people to decide. She says this even as she puts the decision in the hands of the British Prime Minister. The British political elite should have no say in the process of Scotland’s people deciding the future of their nation. It is Nicola Sturgeon who is giving them a say. More than that, she is giving them a greater says than the people of Scotland. By committing to the Section 30 process she is allowing the British political elite to overrule Scotland’s people.
Does anybody think that this is acceptable?
If Boris Johnson is guilty of perverting democracy, Nicola Sturgeon is an accessory. Democracy demands that Westminster have absolutely no part in Scotland’s exercise of its democratic right of self-determination. That is SELF-determination. Meaning only us, the people of Scotland. No external interference!
But Nicola Sturgeon not only allows external interference, she invites it! She insists on it!
