PM Theresa May in Scotland Talking Unity – one of her strongest messages to Scotland since becoming Leader of the Government
Prime Minister Theresa May has called on her fellow Conservatives to continue “loudly and clearly” putting the case for the “precious Union” of the UK.
During a speech to the Scottish Tory conference in Glasgow she said “we are four nations, but at heart one people”. This is how she wanted people to view how she saw the future of the country.
Mrs May had earlier criticised the SNP-led government at Holyrood for having tunnel vision over a second Scottish independence referendum.
The PM insisted that “logic and facts” were on the side of the UK. There is proof.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has maintained that a second referendum was “highly likely” because of Brexit.
Voters in Scotland backed remaining in the EU by 62% to 38%. The UK as a whole voted to leave by 52% to 48%.
On the issue of Brexit, Mrs May told the conference that she was “determined” to ensure that “we leave the EU as one United Kingdom and prosper outside the EU as one United Kingdom”.
She began her speech with a scathing attack on Labour in Scotland.
Mrs May said: “For too long a feeble and incompetent Scottish Labour opposition did nothing to scrutinise the SNP for their failures.
