"In those conditions, we have an obligation to go to bat for Scotland, and to have an arrangement set up to secure our fundamental national interests. "What's more, the Scottish Government has a solid metal majority rule command for a freedom submission if that is the picked course to ensure those interests. It was a particular statement responsibility on which the SNP was re-chosen only 10 months back."
