You will read below more than one ‘Anti-Independence’ politician saying “Scotland should lead the UK not leave it” Now they did say it. Now that Nicola is trying to lead the UK with new ideas and policies she is being demonized. So what gives? If you voted no, you are still in Scotland, you heard Gordon Brown and Johann Lamont and others say this, yet now Nicola is trying the propaganda against her is ASTONISHING! Here are a few from the last few days below

She warned that independence would bring a new wave of austerity for families in Scotland. Speaking in Glasgow, she called on Scots to unite around shared values which have no borders – the convictions of fairness, equality and community – and to build a Scotland for the many not the few.
Ms Lamont called on Scotland to reunite after a No vote and use the strength of the United Kingdom and the opportunity of devolution to achieve Labour’s goals for the country. She said: “We will need to heal the wounds of a divided Scotland. We will need a vision of a new Scotland which can reunite the country. “Yes we will have a stronger Scottish Parliament with more powers but those are not an end in themselves – they are just a means to an end and that end must be social justice.
“Our priority as a nation should not be erecting a border with England, it should be tearing down the barriers which prevent our young from getting a decent education, which stop families aspiring their dreams, and threaten our elderly with poverty and insecurity. “That should be our focus. A real vision rooted not in dogma of nationalism, but rooted in the real experience, the real hopes, the real dreams of ordinary families throughout this country.”
She added: “We will not be bought and sold for Salmond’s fool’s gold. Instead we will use the strength of the United Kingdom to make Scotland stronger. “Poverty is our enemy not our neighbours. And we don’t need to destroy one country to change our nation.” Ms Lamont was speaking at the Kinning Park Complex today in front of an invited audience of 200.
She also set out the risk to individual families of separating from the UK and said that an “additional wave of austerity” would come after independence. Ms Lamont said that Mr Salmond offers no hope for ordinary people, just tax cuts for the bankers and the rich. She said: “We see from the Yes campaign a beautiful picture of a utopian Scotland where the streets will be paved with gold and milk and honey will flow through the land. All will be equal, no one will be poor and our economy will be booming.
Nicola Sturgen Yesterday:
Speaking at the STUC in Ayr on Tuesday First Minister Nicola Sturgeon labelled Sir John’s comments ‘an affront to democracy.’ She said: “Some of the comments we are hearing this morning from Tory politicians like John Major are actually an affront to democracy. “These are politicians who last year urged Scotland to lead, not leave, the UK. These comments suggest the only thing they think we should do is be prepared to say what they want us to say and vote how they want us to vote. “Let me say this, Scotland has a right to make its voice heard in whatever way Scotland chooses.”
Gordon Brown said the same!!
In the final days of the referendum campaign, a leading panel put forward a passionate and clear case for the economic, social, cultural, legal and diplomatic reasons for staying in the union. The event, held in the Usher Hall in Edinburgh on Friday, was attended by over 1000 people and was organised by Working For Scotland.Among the speakers was Kirkcaldy MP Gordon Brown who argued that the future for Scotland should not be to leave the United Kingdom but to lead it.
