The SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT is at a crossroads says former First Minister and ALBA Party Leader Alex Salmond.
Mr Salmond says that with support for independence on the rise, with an IPOS MORI poll stating 56% of Scots would now vote for independence, the independence movement cannot afford to sit back and lose that momentum.
Instead, Salmond believes that it is time to drive through or around the Westminster roadblock on an independence referendum.
He made the remarks in advance of his party’s independence “Way Forward” conference which is being held tomorrow in Perth.
Such was the demand to attend, ALBA Party had to move to a bigger venue shortly after registration opened. There are now 350 delegates due to attend with more on a waiting list.
The Independence Conference is titled “Scotland’s Way Forward” and is in response to the UK Supreme Court decision that the Scottish Parliament does not have the power to legislate for a referendum on Scottish independence.
