The former PM the Rt Hon. Member for Finchley Margaret Thatcher quote:

โ€œShould they determine on independence, no English party or politician would stand in their way, however much we might regret their departure.โ€

In 2015 David Cameron got 37% of the vote - and held an EU referendum.

In 2019 general election the SNP got 45%. In 2021 Holyrood election SNP got 48%.

Iโ€™m no fan of the idea, but the โ€œno mandateโ€ argument against a second independence referendum strikes me as hard to sustain

I've signed the #WASPI pledge pressing the UK government to deliver fast & fair compensation for the 1950s-born women robbed of their state pensions.

@theSNP stands with all WASPI women in their fight for justice.
