Let us be absolutely clear about this. Voting for or promoting any British nationalist party is, by definition, incompatible with the aims and principles of Scotland’s independence movement.
Let us also be in no doubt whatever that the British Labour Party, the British Conservative & Unionist Party and the British Liberal Democrat Party – including the branch operations of these parties in Scotland – are all characterised by the same British nationalist ideology.
These are the parties of the British establishment. They are completely and unalterably committed to the preservation of the structures of power, privilege and patronage which define the British state.
Individually and collectively, the British parties represent the very antithesis of ‘radicalism’. A vote for any of them is not only a vote against the restoration of Scotland’s rightful constitutional status, it is a vote against any meaningful progressive politics.
To embrace the British parties in any manner and to any extent is to embrace the British political system. To validate them is to legitimise established power. To empower them is to fatally undermine the cause of constitutional reform and social justice.
