As the full horror of Theresa May’s premiership begins to dawn on people, it is worth noting her stance on Unions.
It appears that, while she is happy for the UK to leave the European Union, she is determined to keep Scotland in thrall to Westminster as part of the UK. Her first speech confirmed as much and it really isn’t a surprise. That’s because Westminster is only keen on Unions when it has total control over what happens within that Union.
Membership of the EU requires diplomacy, negotiation and compromise, none of which sit well with the Westminster culture. but when it comes to the UK, Westminster rules the roost and can dictate terms. That’s the sort of Union Theresa May and her new band of Right Wing zealots like.
Just about the only good thing you can say about May’s appointment as PM is that it makes the chances of a second IndieRef that much more likely. It’s a silver lining on an otherwise very dark cloud.
