In an interview yesterday in Italy British government defense minister suggested that Scotland should forget another Independence referendum and go straight to a universal declaration of independence.
The following from Reuters:
“Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said on Thursday that there was no need for a second referendum.
“We don’t see any need for a second referendum in Scotland,” Fallon told reporters at a joint news conference in Rome with Italian defense minister Roberta Pinotti.
“The Scottish government should get on with what it was elected to do which is to improve school standards in Scotland, to tackle the problems of the Scottish health service and above all to revive the Scottish economy where unemployment is now rising. Those are the priorities for Scotland, not a second referendum,” Fallon said.”
Concentrating on these issues as a priority, improving education, Scotlands Health care, reviving the Scottish economy, and improving employment and commerce would all necessitate in properly achieving having the economic and tax levers, and full autonomy free of interference from elsewhere.
So thanks Mr Fallon ..we don’t need another referendum, good of you to say so. Bye now!
