@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot The UK is no longer the UK it was in 2014, due to rampant corruption and illegalities in actions of Tory UK Government.…
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot Furthermore, one of many lies used to coerce and manipulate UK electorate is that #ScottishIndependence 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 would result in Scotland having to leave the EU.

In 2014, there was no open discussion that UK was considering staging a referendum on whether or not UK would leave the EU.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot That the lie used to dissuade Scots from voting for #ScottishIndependence 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 effectively convinced many Scots to vote against #ScottishIndependence 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and with hindsight, their BEST INTERESTS, indicates that those same Scots highly favoured EU membership.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot Moving forward to present day, we have confirmation that Tory Uk Government, not satisfied with manipulating indyref 2014 in their favour, they proceeded to manipulate EU Ref 2016 again in their favour.

Scotland voted REMAIN and against Brexit!
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot “Scotland has been completely ignored by Westminster throughout Brexit process and we are being forced to pay a devastating price. It is clear that the only way to protect Scotland’s interests, and regain the full benefits of EU membership, is to become an independent country."
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot “This is a very bad deal for Scotland, which will terminate our membership of EU, rip us out of the world’s largest single market and customs union, end our freedom of movement rights, and impose mountains of red tape, added costs and barriers to trade for Scottish businesses."
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot He said: “Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. The people of Scotland have a right to determine our own future as an independent European country.”…
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot The Scottish fishing industry is ONE of many Scottish industries likely to be adversely impacted by Brexit Agreement hastily cobbled together because #LiarJohnson, refused to commit sufficient time and effort in order to achieve 'best possible outcome' for UK.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot If not the UK, then WHO does UK Government act to serve the interests of?

NB UK comprises 4 nations/province. Within context of devolution of powers, authority and responsibilities, it is recognised that 'reserved powers' impact lives of ALL citizens in ALL 4 nations/province.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot In recognition of the impact of issues for which 'reserved powers' exist, it ought to be beyond any doubt, that those powers ought not to be exercised without due consultation, agreement and consent of ALL FOUR nations/province comprising UK - thus, ensuring needs of all are met.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot Devolution not only devolves responsibility for the exercise of devolved powers, but also authority and obligation to act in 'best interests' of all citizens in all nations/province comprising UK.

Devolution places decision making close to citizens affected by these decisions.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot The notion that central decision making in Westminster can override decision making within nations/province comprising UK simply by locating Westminster staff geographically within each nation/province is a direct contradiction of the founders' aims for devolution.
@StarstuckT @Odiepops @YesScot The arrogance underlying such underhanded actions as evidenced within "UK Internal Market Bill" is a direct attack on devolution and democracy within ALL nations/province comprising UK.

Those parliamentarians advocating this affront to all UK citizens must be held accountable!

"Maugham has, over recent months, launched crowdfunding for a legal challenge to the appointment of Dido Harding – wife of Tory MP and government “Anti-Corruption Champion” John Penrose – "
"- as head of the newly formed National Institute for Health Protection, without any interview process or open competition."

"It has ongoing proceedings aimed at answering the question “Just how does public money end up in the pockets of Cummings’s friends?” "
"Separately, last week it opened the latest in a series of cases against the Department of Health to shed light on the award of PPE contracts worth more than £250m to Saiger, a Florida-based jewellery company with no experience of supplying PPE."

"At the end of October, Twitter announced that it was banning political advertisements. The announcement came after its bigger rival Facebook ruled out the possibility of banning political ads on its own social network."
"But not only did Facebook refuse to ban political ads, it also refused to subject such ads to fact-checking, something which critics said was necessary in view of the often deceptive nature of posts from political sources."
"Well, this controversial policy appears to have had the desired effect, as the incumbent Conservative government celebrated a "crushing" victory in Thursday's U.K. general election."

"Belief that Britain is a force for good in the world has plunged in the last 18 months, a national poll has found, with under half of the UK now convinced of the country’s positive impact."
"Just under half of Britons (49%) believe that Britain is a force for good in the world, down 10 points from April 2019."
"While 41% of Britons say the UK should punch above its weight in world affairs, the proportion who believe Britain should stop pretending it is an important power is up five points from last year to 38%."
