Alex Salmond addressing “Garioch Women for Change” Supreme Court Demonstration in Inverurie 6pm Wednesday 23rd November said:
“Going to the London Supreme Court was a dead-end alley which has the potential to put back the cause of independence for decades. Going cap in hand to London was never a sensible tactic and the response was even more extreme than expected. The Court even presumed to challenge Scotland’s right as a nation to self-determination.
“It will now require determined action and clear strategy to turn this arrogant rebuff to Scotland’s advantage. That action should be born in Scotland to take Scotland’s future back into Scotland’s hands.
“Scotland right now needs a combination of brave hearts on the streets but clear heads in planning the way forward. Today the independence movement has been brought to the edge of a precipice. It now needs clear strategic thinking to turn this London roadblock into a Scottish opportunity.”
