The SNP Walkout

Perhaps the best summary of last week’s events came from Murray Foote, author of the vow, who is now firmly of the view that Scotland’s future must be as a newly independent country. In essence, he said that he could no longer subscribe to the view that Scotland should have two parliaments: one that it didn’t vote for, and the other whose primary function was to mitigate the effects of the policies of that parliament. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to be far more progressive, dynamic, ambitious.
