Only Independence Offers a Better Future for Scotland

The SNP has said “there is no positive case” for Scotland remaining under Westminster control after former Labour Party leader, Gordon Brown, admitted “the forces pulling Britain apart are greater than the forces holding it together.” 

In an interview with the Financial Times, Gordon Brown appeared to concede there was no positive case being put forward by those who oppose Scottish independence and the case for Scotland becoming an independent country was stronger.

The SNP Depute Leader, Keith Brown, has highlighted that this was always the case – citing scaremongering and broken promises as a hallmark of the ’No’ campaign – and that independence is the only path to creating a better future for Scotland.

SNP Depute Leader, Keith Brown said:

“There has never been a positive argument for Scotland remaining under Westminster control and it seems that even Gordon Brown can now see that to be the case.

“During the 2014 independence referendum, the ‘No’ campaign was built on nothing more than scaremongering and, what we can now see to be, broken promises – and, since then, the damage Westminster has inflicted on Scotland is unforgivable. 

“Westminster isn’t working for Scotland and there is no positive case for broken Brexit Britain – only the SNP and independence offers a better future for our country.

“Just like other comparable independent nations, Scotland has the resources, skills and people to be a successful country but the failing Westminster system is holding us back from reaching our potential.

“With the Tories and Keir Starmer’s Labour Party offering no meaningful change, the Westminster election is an opportunity for people to vote SNP to build a stronger, fairer, wealthier country where decisions about Scotland are taken in Scotland with independence.”
