Scotland’s voice not being heard, blasts Sturgeon
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.”
