A second Scottish Independence Referendum is much-needed, entirely inevitable – and totally democratic – despite claims made tonight by Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour party’s British election manifesto.
Mark R. Whittet is the leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party. He is standing for election to the British parliament in the Edinburgh West constituency.
In a filmed recording made for broadcast tonight (15 May 2017) on BBC 2 TV Newsnight programme, Whittet says:
- The Scottish Independence Referendum Party is standing for election to the British parliament in Edinburgh West go give the voters another chance to put Scotland’s interests first.
- The Scottish Independence Referendum Party is standing up for Scotland.
- The first past the post voting system to the British parliament is un-democratic and gives British Unionist parties three or four chances to get past the unfair first part the post winning line.
- But if SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon truly wants to put Scotland’s interests first, her candidate in Edinburgh West must stand down to give voters a fair chance of voting for the other major political party – Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party – that stands up for Scotland.
- Because of the SNP’s problems with their previous MP, the SNP cannot win here in Edinburgh West – but Scotland’s Independence Referendum party could win here in Edinburgh West.
He added: “For Jeremy Corbyn to claim in Labour’s manifesto that another Scottish Independence Referendum is ‘unnecessary’ is make him sound just like all the other British Unionist parties – un-truthful and hypocritical – especially as he is on record of saying that Scotland should be able to hold its own Independence Referendum’”.
