Scot­land’s voice not be­ing heard, blasts Sturgeon

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

NI­COLA Sturgeon said the Supreme Court rul­ing that the UK Gov­ern­ment is “not legally com­pelled” to con­sult the de­volved ad­min­is­tra­tions be­fore for­mally start­ing the Brexit process raises “fun­da­men­tal is­sues” for Scot­land.

The First Min­is­ter said the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment was “ob­vi­ously dis­ap­pointed” with the ver­dict.

Ms Sturgeon has al­ready pledged to give MSPs at Holy­rood a vote on Ar­ti­cle 50, although the Supreme Court rul­ing means it will be purely sym­bolic.

“It is be­com­ing clearer by the day that Scot­land’s voice is sim­ply not be­ing heard or lis­tened to within the UK,” she said.

“The claims about Scot­land be­ing an equal part­ner are be­ing ex­posed as noth­ing more than empty rhetoric.”
