Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (29 Jan 2020)

Annabelle Ewing: ...fundamental constitutional principle that underlies our democracy in Scotland, which is that sovereignty lies with the people of Scotland and not with this Parliament, the Westminster Parliament, Boris Johnson or the Tory party.
