Scottish Independence and the EU

Scottish Independence and the EU

We are neutral on the benefits or otherwise of Scottish independence.  Respecting the previous result, we do not support holding a further Scottish Independence referendum during the next parliament.  If support for independence is above 50% for a period of several years, we would not oppose another referendum in the future.

We are also neutral on the issue of EU membership, but respect the 2016 referendum result.

Though these issues are important and have dominated recent political debate, we believe that the foundational values that underpin our society are of greater consequence than constitutional questions.  Constitutional change would not bring about the change in political values that is so desperately needed.
