Statement on the SNP Government’s white paper on an independence referendum

30 November 2009

Marlyn Glen described the multi-choice referendum as ,

” The SNP running away from the very reason for its existence as a political party – independence”

“Instead of a straight-forward YES-No choice between independence and the status quo, the SNP have added alternatives, attempting to soften the stark reality of that choice.

“The SNP have already stated that even if they lost a referendum in 2010, they could introduce it again if they won the 2011 election for Holyrood .

“So the Referendum would become the Never-endum.

” This is why the Bill’s defeat is inevitable, and why it regarded by Scots as an expensive irrelevance when Scotland’s priorities are jobs and the economy.”
