The Truss Veto Needs Overturned - Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh

ALBA Party Chair Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh commenting on Tory leadership front runner Liz Truss’ dismissal of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: 

“Now Scotland knows exactly where we stand with the incoming Prime Minister. The Truss ‘Declaration of Exeter’ shows she will treat Scotland with contempt and also demonstrates that she is not bright enough to conceal the fact.

There can be no more pretence or pussyfooting prevarication. The response to Truss should not be meek letters asking for a section 30 or fruitless appeals to the Supreme Court. We require a campaign of parliamentary and popular action backed up by diplomatic initiative to force Scotland’s democracy down the throat of Downing Street. We need to meet Westminster Tory arrogance with Scottish democratic strength.”
