Dear Editor, With the EU elections on Thursday and the possibility of a general election looming as the Tory party implodes, Scotland again finds itself at a pivotal point in its history.
The choice is stark, do we again hand over our decision making to London and have our country taken out of the EU against our wishes, or do we re-affirm our commitment to the EU by sending representatives to the European Parliament who will look after Scotland's interests? Do we continue to welcome people from other countries who have come here to work, make their homes here and bring up a new generation of Scots, or do we allow a government dominated by a neighbouring country to erect administrative barriers to this, impoverishing the culture of this country in the same way they have economically impoverished it.
Send a signal to the UK government via the ballot box. Scotland intends to take its place as a modern European democracy now, and the first stage in this process is for everyone to get out to vote in the EU elections.
