Despite the clear wish of the Scottish people to remain in the EU, we are, once again, being ridden over roughshod by Westminster in its lemming-like obsession with controlling immigration. Scotland *MUST* have independence if it is to survive the post-Brexit financial and legislative debacle, and it is imperative that we Scots gain the right to self governance.

It is the clear wish of the people of Scotland to remain in the EU and gain independence from the constraints of Westminster rule. Use the mandate and lead Scotland into a better future

I think Scotland and her people have the right to self govern herself without being dictated by a foreign UK Government. That does not stand up for the people of Scotland. Scotland is BIG ENOUGH, SMART ENOUGH, RICH ENOUGH
