Tommy Sheppard on the Union

Tommy Sheppard MP

In the day before Westminster broke up, for the summer that is – Westminster has been breaking up day after day during the course of this parliament, Tommy Sheppard MP reminded the parliament that devolution had been a process that took nearly 150 years to get off the ground. Since 1999 Holyrood had gained increasing powers. Now the process is going backwards with the failure of Westminster to accept the will of the devolved parliaments. As there is no English parliament Westminster decides for all the UK on the basis of the number of English MPs voting for England’s interests.

Succinct as always Tommy demonstrates why Independence must be revisited especially in the wake of a Brexit process shrouded in ever increasing circles of incoherence and ineptitude.
