Is the UK a partnership of equal nations?

The idea that the UK is a voluntary union of nations is a myth.

As the Supreme Court ruling of October 2022 exposed, the Westminster claims of the UK being a partnership of equals is not true.

Yet that is what they promised people in Scotland in 2014 if they voted ‘No’. 

In June 2014 the Scottish and Westminster party leaders promised that a ‘No’ vote meant that “Power lies with the Scottish people and we believe it is for the Scottish people to decide how we are governed.” For years this had been their position.

Now they all subscribe to the position that only Westminster can decide Scotland’s future.

The UK has been shown to have changed from a voluntary union to a Westminster control system.

The only way for Scotland to achieve equal partnership with the other nations of the UK is through independence.
