The Socialist Equality Party (SEP) calls for a decisive and unambiguous “No” vote in the September 18 referendum on Scottish independence.
All claims that “independence” is a democratic demand, offering an alternative to cuts and austerity, are lies. The move for separation from the UK is being led by right-wing forces espousing nationalism, whether or not they attempt to dress this up in fake-left language. The aim is to transform Scotland into a low tax, cheap labour platform for the benefit of the banks and transnational corporations.
The victims of this will be workers on both sides of the border, who will see a deepening of the ongoing offensive against jobs, wages and conditions that has been waged by all the major parties in both Westminster and Holyrood.
