“Solidarity is disgusted in the way the Tories have dismissed the power of the Scottish government in the debate on 12/06/2018. They have disregarded the devolution agreement, disregarded the entire purpose of a Scottish government and disregarded the views and opinions of the Scottish people. Even those who voted to stay in the UK support the Scottish parliament having a say. The tories have decided to remove that say.
This is not a move that would be allowed to happen in a fair and equal union. This is a power grab by Westminster tories and nothing more.
Solidarity will not stand back and allow the rights of the Scottish parliament to be trampled on by authoritarian dictators.
The Scottish parliament have a mandate to call for a second independence referendum before the end of this parliament. After this showing of disdain for the devolved government, it’s never been more necessary to use that mandate, call for a second independence referendum and get us away from these disgusting practises of the Westminster elite. ”
