The promises made by the UK Government's elected members to the people of Scotland in 2014 have been proven to be, at best only marginally met and at worst, entirely false. BREXIT being forced upon Scotland, despite our overwhelming majority to remain in the EU is a constitutional breaking point. The UK government seeking & obtaining Royal Assent for BREXIT whilst there is an ongoing legal case over the Continuity Bill just makes an absolute mockery of any claims that Scotland is an "Equal Partner" in the "UK" and is a clear indication of how that particular court case will rule...it WON'T be in Scotland's favour. The UK Parliaments denial of a decent debate is another affront to democracy. The lack of ANY clear, concise information about the BREXIT negotiations at Ministerial and Public levels is gravely concerning. Given the utterly disgraceful treatment of Scotland by the UK government since 2014...the Vow, Smith, Sewell, BREXIT etc, our "partnership" within the UK context is no longer valid. Scotland is a country not a region. As a Scottish citizen, I am asking for the Scottish Government to begin the process of securing the necessary paperwork required to authenticate a referendum on independence for Scotland. Thank you.

We need to be an independent country. I believe Westminster lied and cheated with the original vote

Please make it possible on the drop down list of countries to select Scotland and not have to select UK. I'm surprised this hasn't been resolved
