A triple mandate process

Whilst we are waiting for Theresa May to set out her Brexit objectives, which we are told will be next Tuesday, it is well worth looking at the process the Scottish Government has been following since the morning of 24th June 2016.

Richard Walker, former editor of the Sunday Herald and The National, interviewed Michael Russell MSP, Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe. This video by Broadcasting Scotland sets out clearly the path the Scottish Government and the SNP are following in the wake of England and Wales voting to leave the European Union.

Scotland, in every cormer of the land, voted to Remain by 62% to 38%, firmly confirming our long held belief that Scotland is a European nation. A clarity our confused southern neighbours failed to share and seem intent on returning to a past that does not exist outside the realms of fiction and endless period dramas.

I believe this is a must watch whilst we wait for Mrs May to catch up and to find out the decision of the Supreme Court.
