Independence for Scotland - The Dream is Still Alive



63 SNP MSPs
60 Unionist MSPs

Number of votes cast in the Scottish Election last Thursday for Labour and the Conservatives - the Unionist parties: 1,016,105

Number of votes cast for the parties wishing independence for Scotland: 1,059,897

And yet - the Conservative leader Ruth Davidson and Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie have both called on Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to rule out a second referendum on independence for the five-year duration of the next parliament.

Independence for Scotland isn't dead - far from it. The dream is still very much alive.

Yes the dream is still alive Mike. I am a great believer a positive attitude may not solve all our problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Big hugs
