‘You’ll Be Far From Independent!” Marr BLASTS SNP MP
The Scottish National Party are a strange breed of nationalist, they want independence for Scotland from the rest of the United Kingdom but more than happy for a ‘Free Scotland’ to carry on under the yoke of Brussels. Indeed, one of the hooks their hang their nationalism is the EU Referendum Vote.
Andrew Marr brilliantly exposed this contradiction yesterday. He was interviewing SNP’s Westminister leader Ian Blackford. Mr Blackford, urged Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to back the Scottish party’s call to stay inside the single market, refused to say whether he supported an EU army.
In the week that Martin Schulz expressed his intense desire for a ‘United States Of Europe,’ it seems that Mr Blackford is all too keen to sign the SNP and Scotland up.
Marr skewered Blackford:
“Is that still the case even after the agenda of the EU has become clear?
“Schulz wants a new constitution for Europe, for a United States of Europe, which entails an army, a treasury, a chancellor and anyone who doesn’t like it will have to leave.
“There is no independence for Scotland there!”
Blackford shyly replied:
“We are concentrating on what is happening in front of us at the moment.
“Our position is that we are protecting the interests of our people and that means staying inside the single market.”
So, not talking about the federalist elephant in the room then? The people of Scotland deserve far better than this totally evasive and dishonest answer from the SNP.
