Joint Statement on Independence

Joint Statement on Independence

On the 13th March 2017 Nicola Sturgeon fired the starting gun on the second Scottish independence referendum and positioned the country for a second debate on Scotland’s constitutional future. We, The Scottish Libertarian Party, believe that this debate has immediately been presented in a manner that does a great disservice to the voters in this country.

A Humble Foreign Policy Does Not Mean Military Weakness

A Humble Foreign Policy Does Not Mean Military Weakness

Ministry of Defence has been synonymous with Ministry of War in recent decades, but the reality is that elevating the capacity to wage war abroad does not provide security at home.
