This is my question for Scotland, do you hate the Tories more than you support the idea of devolution and which problem should you address first? It is all well and good supporting the ideal of devolution but until that opportunity arises which is your main concern, surely it must be who is likely to govern the UK in the interim period because these are the policies that will affect you in the short term. It would appear that a vote for the SNP is a luxury which you may not be able to afford if by doing so you put in place another Tory Government. Many in Scotland would prefer to remain in the EU but can this be achieved with a vote for the SNP? The SNP will not be in a position to govern the UK nor to determine whether or not the the UK remains in the EU. Which is the more immediate threat: a Tory Government that is hell bent on taking the UK out of the EU or the luxury of having the SNP govern Scotland whilst being unable to avert the impending and immediate danger
What is Scotland’s best chance of remaining in the EU?
If Scotland wants to avoid being taken out of the EU then surely it must place it’s hopes of devolution or another referendum on that subject on the back burner and deal instead with the more immediate threat by supporting a Party that can prevent the Uk’s departure from the EU. The SNP will not be able to prevent Scotland from being taken out of the EU before devolution so what is the more immediate danger either not getting another chance to vote on devolution or our impending departure from the EU? Scotland must make up it’s mind what is it’s biggest threat and where it’s priorities lie. It’s all very well voting for a Party promising devolution as it’s long term goal but this may come at a price of not being able to influence the outcome of the more immediate threat.
Is Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP indirectly supporting Tory Rule and aggravating Scotlands hopes of remaining in the EU?
Scottish voters need to ask themselves questions regarding whether or not they believe that by offering their support and loyalty to Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP they are not indirectly supporting continued Tory rule and perhaps even aggravating Scottish hopes of remaining in the EU. As I mentioned the SNP are powerless to alter the course of Brexit on their own and in their relative isolation. Perhaps then the luxury of voting in the SNP in Scotland should be put aside for the time being at least. Brexit is not a regional matter and all parts of the UK must unify if they are to have a chance of opposing it by voting for a cross border National Political Party that is willing to oppose Brexit. Regional matters must be shelved for the time being for the long term good of Scotland and the UK as a whole otherwise the Tories will triumph.
