UKIP Scotland Chairman Mike Scott-Hayward, pictured above, has made the following statement after the signing of the Edinburgh Agreement on a Scottish Referendum:
UKIP stands four square behind the unity of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
We also firmly believe in the right of the British everywhere to be the final arbiters over their own lives.
That is why we support and would introduce binding (Swiss-style) referenda on vital issues.
That is why we believe it is as much the right of the Scottish nation to determine whether or not Scotland remains an integral part of the United Kingdom, as it is the right of the British people to determine if the UK should remain in the EU.
Our view on those two crucial issues is well known but we will repeat them and fight for them until we achieve what we believe the British people want – the continued integrity of the UK, and full British sovereignty.
So we support the Better Together campaign – we dismiss the SNP 's "wee pretendy Independence" ideas – and we want a referendum to take the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland OUT of the EU to achieve full British sovereignty and true UK Independence.
Vote NO to stop any British break up – and campaign for true British sovereignty thereafter.
