Scotland must have the chance to determine our own future after twelve months that made clear why Scotland needs independence, the SNP has said.

The General Election result showed starkly that Scotland wants to go in a different political direction than England.

The result, which has handed Boris Johnson at least five more years as Prime Minister, will see Scotland dragged out of the EU against our will.

During the 2014 referendum the No campaign argued that Boris Johnson would never become Prime Minister – and that the way for Scotland to stay in the EU was to vote No.

Opinion polls have shown support for independence growing even ahead of the General Election.

Commenting, SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:

“The case for independence has never been clearer.

“In 2014 we were told that voting No meant staying in the EU and voting Yes meant leaving.

“The reality is that, not only are we being dragged out of the EU against our will, but we’re facing yetmore Tory governments we didn’t vote for.

“Scotland has been completely ignored since the Brexit vote.

“Our compromise proposals were completely disregarded – and now Northern Ireland has been handed a special deal that puts Scotland at a competitive disadvantage.

“No wonder people across Scotland – many of whom are not natural independence supporters – are now thinking again.

“The democratic deficit is as clear as it has ever been.

“Scotland’s future must be in Scotland’s hands – not Boris Johnson’s.”
