Scottish Secretary of State David Mundell has controversially claimed that Scotland is not a partner in the UK, but is merely a part of the UK.
The Conservative MP’s comments came during a debate in the House of Commons which covered the so-called Power Grab which will see Westminster seize control of devolved issues for up to seven years.
During the debate Mr Mundell took issue with a description of Scotland as an equal partner in the United Kingdom. Responding he said: “Scotland is not a partner of the United Kingdom, Scotland is a part of a United Kingdom.”
The comments from the Secretary of State echo remarks he made during the independence referendum when Mr Mundell agreed Scotland had been “extinguished” after the 1707 Act of Union.
These latest remarks are certain to spark controversy and will do little to dampen a growing sense of outrage over what many perceive to be a lack of respect for Scotland and her parliament by the UK government.
