Scotland in Europe Update: 27th September 2019

We have said many times over, in this bulletin and elsewhere, that Scotland deserves better than what it gets from Westminster. That has never been more true than this week.

This whole farce - begun when David Cameron called the referendum on EU membership - has been an ongoing exercise in stretching the boundaries of credibility. This week we witnessed the extraordinary spectacle of the UK’s Supreme Court stating, unanimously and emphatically, that Boris Johnson’s government had acted unlawfully in proroguing Parliament, upholding the verdict of the Scottish Court of Session.

Alyn welcomed the verdict on the day: “This is good news, and I pay tribute to my SNP colleague Joanna Cherry QC MP who led the case. The UK Parliament must resume without delay to hold the Tory government to account on its Brexit plans, which threaten to plunge the UK into recession, destroy 100,000 Scottish jobs, and inflict lasting harm on living standards, public services and the economy across Scotland, the UK and the EU.”
