Philippa Whitford on SNP’s mandate for a second referendum.
Written by Marlene on 22nd December 2019
Philippa Whitford, the SNP MP for Central Ayrshire, spoke to Good Morning Scotland on the subject of the strengthened mandate now held by SNP for a second referendum.
Just before Philippa, the GMS team had had Alister Jack, MP and Secretary of State for Scotland on the phone, Gillian Marles did a good job of pursuing him in her interview. He was adamant that the SNP have no mandate for IndyRef2.
Needless to say, Philippa had no truck with that. Here is what she said:
