Commenting on the UK Supreme Court’s ruling that Tory PM Boris Johnson’s decision to shut down Parliament was unlawful, Isles MP Angus MacNeil said:

“Today’s ruling in the Supreme Court is welcome news.  The Tory Government must be held to account over its damaging Brexit plans.

“Scotland voted in favour of staying in the European Union by 62% – every single local authority area in Scotland voted Remain.

“The UK is in disarray and it is clearer than ever, that Scotland should become an independent country.”
