May Destroys SNP for Encouraging Disunity

British PM Theresa May blasted the Scottish National Party (SNP) during PMQs on Wednesday for encouraging disunity on the day the UK files intent to leave the European Union.

During Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) in the UK on Wednesday, Prime Minister Theresa May blasted a Scottish member of Parliament for trying to encourage Scotland’s break from the UK during a time of unity.

The member, Angus Robertson, asked, over shouts: “will the people of Scotland have a choice about their future?” Robertson was referencing the Scottish National Party (SNP)’s calls for a new independence referendum.

May threw a barb at SNP, calling them the “Scottish Nationalists Party.” When heckles rained down on May from Scottish members of the UK Parliament, the speaker presiding over PMQs had to reprimand the members over their “unseemly” behavior.

May then threw down the gauntlet: “The SNP consistently talks about independence as the only subject they wish to talk about. … Now is not the time to be talking about a second independence referendum. On today, of all days, we should be coming together as a United Kingdom to get the best deal for Britain.”
