Bexiteers at the EU Parliament – Despicable

Filed under: Brexit, European Parliament, Scotland, Westminster — derryvickers @ 8:42 pm

I find the Brexiteers’ action at the European Parliament despicable; they by implication bring loathing on the UK as a whole and Scotland in particular.

I compare Sein Fein with this lot; Sein Fein are honourable in comparison, they refuse to take their seats in Westminster on policy grounds.

But this lot take their seats,  claim their salary and yet are totally against Europe.

Why doesn’t the Scottish Government formally disown these Brexiteers’ action?

Fiona Hyslop as Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs at the Scottish Parliament should issue a formal statement that Scotland repudiates the Brexiteers’ action
