ENDING THE UNION

Published by scott4indy on

Empowering our MP’s to End The Union if the Treaty is broken over Brexit

Northern Ireland has been accepted as a third state of the United Kingdom as defined under Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.
The 1707 Treaty of the Acts of the Union states that Scotland shall have the same rights and access to trade as the rest of the UK.
Any deal that facilitates a different trading arrangement for Northern Ireland will be in breach of Articles 4 and 6 of that Treaty.

Any arrangement that allows one member state of the United Kingdom to trade differently over another would be in breach of the Treaty of the Acts of the Union. But the Conservatives seem to think that they can ignore this treaty and carry on regardless.

The UK Governments continued efforts to push through its EU withdrawal agreement and its proposals to replace the backstop with an agreement that allows Northern Ireland different trade and customs arrangements to that of the rest of the UK would leave Scotland at a disadvantage and this is unacceptable.

It falls upon the people of Scotland to empower our Members of Parliament in Westminster with the authority of the Scottish people, to repeal the Union with England Act if the treaty is deemed to have been broken by the other party.

The UK Government may object all it wants and as we all know it can quote many acts when trying to justify its sovereignty over Scotland, but in reality it has no legislative power to stop Scotland from withdrawing from the union, especially if the treaty has been breached by them and the Scottish Members of Parliament have debated and voted on it.

A proposal along with supporting documents and legal argument’s has been drawn up and sent to our Scottish MP’s along with letters objecting to any changes in the Act which would leave Scotland at a disadvantage, these were sent as a “Statutory Declaration” making it a legal document that can be presented as a sworn statement of objection.

I would encourage everyone to write to their MP’s as a matter of urgency objecting to any changes to the 1707 Act unless it is to dissolve the treaty in its entirety releasing Scotland from its duties and commitments under the act, in effect ending the union.

Dear (insert MP’s name)

Any deal that facilitates a different trading arrangement for Northern Ireland over that of the rest of the UK will in my opinion be a clear breach of the 1707 Treaty of the Acts of the Union.

Northern Ireland is accepted as a third state of the Union as defined under Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties and as such under Articles 4 and 6 of the Treaty of the Acts of the Union cannot be offered or granted a different arrangement to that of Scotland.

As matters relating to the union are reserved to Westminster, and given that this is a Scottish Enactment, then it falls upon Scotland’s (Not England’s) MP’s to debate the matter on our behalf. Should the majority of Scotland’s MP’s agree that a breach has occurred, then Scotland has the right to end the union releasing us from our commitments and duties under the act.

It is the duty of Scotland’s democratically elected representatives to protect our rights and privileges under the Act, and if there is a breach by the other party, then it is their duty to take such action as they deem necessary to protect the interests of the people of Scotland who elected them.

A document has been prepared along with legal arguments which can be viewed and downloaded online at www.declaration.scot under the heading of “Ending the Union”

I am contacting all SNP MP’s individually to notify them of my objection to any trading arrangements for Northern Ireland that will not be made available to the rest of the UK, I am also objecting to any changes in the Union with England Act in order to facilitate a different trading or customs relationship for Northern Ireland that will disadvantage Scotland.

The “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” Article 21 Section 1 states;

“Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives”

And I am exercising that right by notifying you as my “freely chosen representative” in Westminster of my objections through a declaration signed and witnessed under the Statutory Declarations Act 1835. This makes it a legal document and as such can be presented as a sworn statement of my objection.

It matters not whether you are my constituency MP, as I am raising this objection as a concerned resident of Scotland.

Regards

(your signature and name)
