EUROPE: Inconsistent arguments

editorial image

Perhaps Nicola Sturgeon could explain why she considers the views of the 1.6 million Scots who voted Remain in the Referendum should be vigorously upheld, even to the extent of seeking to block the UK leaving the EU, when, at the same time, she seeks every opportunity to overturn the views of the two million Scots who voted in the Scottish Independence Referendum to remain in the United Kingdom.

This surely ranks alongside the inconsistency of objecting to democratically elected government from Westminster, but wanting to be subjected to government by the undemocratic EU.
