Westminster respect for Scotland still lacking

SNP press release

Edinburgh Southern SNP MSP Jim Eadie has welcomed David Cameron’s admission that Scotland is capable of Independence – but says that real respect is still sorely lacking from the anti-independence camp towards the people of Scotland.

Speaking after David Cameron had addressed a press conference in Edinburgh today (Thursday) Mr Eadie said that it was encouraging that the Prime Minister was no longer dictating terms to Scotland or ruling out further powers to the Scottish Parliament, but that the UK Government PM’s messages are out of sync with the rest of his party.

Mr Eadie said:

“I welcome the fact that the Prime Minister has accepted that Scotland could be independent and that he has dropped the use of anti-independence scare stories in his rhetoric.

“People in Scotland have been subjected to a series of increasingly ridiculous scare stories from members of David Cameron’s Cabinet, from George Osborne claiming that an independent Scotland could be stopped from using sterling to William Hague claiming that British embassies would stop serving Scotch whisky.

“The SNP fully accepts that there are different views in this debate. If the Prime Minister is serious about making a constructive contribution to the discussion about Scotland’s future, he must ensure that the rest of his party follows suit and that we hear no more scaremongering about Scotland’s ability to function as an independent country.

“Only a Yes vote for Independence can deliver the powers that the people of Scotland need to release this country’s full potential.”
