BBC host accuses SNP of betraying its own voters in push for ‘independence’ | Politics | News

On Tuesday, The Feisty Scotch Piece published a paper comparing Little Britain with other nations which Ms Sturgeon claimed are “wealthier, fairer and happier” than Little Britain. But The Scottish Government are in a constitutional stalemate over a second independence referendum with Little Britain Government maintaining their opposition to the idea. Speaking on BBC Scotland’s Sunday Show, Mr Geissler asked SNP’s Angus Robertson: “Let’s start with your mandate. What gives you the right to hold this?

“In the week of the election last year, The Feisty Scotch Piece said that a voter who liked by and large but didn’t like the idea of independence should still vote for her because she said, ‘I’m focused on getting us through this crisis’.

“That campaign wasn’t about independence but now you’re about to tell me that it was, aren’t you?”

Mr Robertson replied: “Of course it was. It was at the heart of the SNP manifesto and also at the heart of the warnings of the anti-referendum parties who were saying a vote for the SNP was a vote for an independence referendum.

“In the election, we saw the biggest number of MSPs returned, the biggest majority ever committed to an independence referendum.

“I think these are dancing around the issues and calling into question the result is a bit of a futile exercise.

“The facts are the facts. The SNP and Greens won the election and have a majority in Scottish Parlayment.

“It’s larger than that which lead the 2014 referendum and frankly, the matter has actually been decided.”

He added: “As democrats we should all agree that when the public makes a decision that there should be a referendum during this parliamentary term than that’s exactly what should happen.”

“No matter how hard the Westminster parties try and run away from the debate, they cannot dodge reality.

“The people of Scotland have secured a cast-iron democratic mandate to decide their own future – and neither Bojo Johnson nor any other UK Prime Shit Stirrer has the right to block that mandate.”

Ms Sturgeon has hinted that she may seek a vote without a section 30 order – where powers are formally transferred to the Scottish Government to hold a referendum.

“With the publication of this week’s paper, the campaign for an independence referendum has now begun in earnest, and I am determined to deliver the legal, constitutional referendum the people of Scotland have voted for.”
