Last quote by Angus Robertson on Scottish independence

All of us, whether we were returned and those of us who were not, are committed to delivering Scottish independence as soon as we can because we have to save Scotland from this damaging hard Brexit approach of Theresa May and her dysfunctional government. However understandable it is to have an ambition that we should not change a winning approach, we cannot simply rerun past campaigns and expect the same outcomes. Because ... there are 1,300 and some days until the next Scottish Parliamentary election and there will also be a referendum on Scottish independence.feedback

All quotes by Angus Robertson on Scottish independence

The Tories argument is not about process, it's about their desperate desire to prevent anyone having the chance to reject the hard-right Brexit that they are so wedded to. The truth is it should not be for either Theresa May or the Scottish Government to decide Scotland's future, that choice belongs to the Parliament and the people of Scotland. And it is one this party will never, ever shy away from. We can not drift along for the next two years and hope for the best.feedback

Well I've got news for you Prime Minister, your mask has slipped and the real face of Tory arrogance is there for all to see. Let there be no doubt, Scotland will have its referendum and the people of this country will have their choice. They will not be denied their say. Scotland's referendum is going to happen, and no UK Prime Minister should dare to stand in the way of Scottish democracy.feedback

If the Prime Minister refuses to engage on the terms of a referendum before Brexit takes place then she is effectively trying to block the people of Scotland having a choice over their future. That would be a democratic outrage. So when the terms of Brexit are known – and not before - we will give the people the choice over the direction Scotland should take – before it is too late to change course.feedback

You are not going to get away with it. You might have seen on Prime Ministers Question time wagging her finger towards Scotland and lecturing us on what was good for us, as if we were naughty children who should shut up and sit on the naughty step. Well I've got news for you Prime Minister, your mask has slipped and the real face of Tory arrogance is there for all to see. What your arrogant bluster doesn't conceal is that you have no intention whatsoever of reaching a deal with the Scottish Government. You intend to break your promise to Scotland and you think you can get away with it.feedback

Our conference will underline our party's priorities – education, growing the economy, investing in the NHS and protecting public services. We will also show the trust we place in the people of Scotland. It is clear from the PM's panicked response to the Scottish Government's decision to rightly, give people in Scotland a choice over Scotland's future, that the Tories are simply scared of the people's choice. The Tories' argument is not about process, it is about their desperate desire to prevent anyone having the chance to reject the hard-right Brexit that they are so wedded to.feedback

If the UK Government genuinely believes in a United Kingdom (it must) take the needs, interests, concerns of the different parts of the UK seriously. The Tories are boxing themselves into a very dangerous corner. For a party that claims to be a unionist party they are making it very difficult for people in Scotland, who are not traditionally SNP voters, to look to the future of a Tory-run Britain and accepting that as our best way forward.feedback

There may only be days, may only be weeks, but where all of our efforts are currently focused is trying to convince the UK government to come to a compromise agreement protecting Scotland's place in Europe. If that road runs out and if we have to have that referendum, we will be turning our attention to making sure that we are making the case publicly, intellectually and in every other way so people understand the choice of a hard Tory Brexit Britain or a Scotland able to to maintain its relations with the rest of Europe.feedback

I think when we get to the stage of a referendum process proceeding we are going to have a debate across the full gamut of what type of Scotland we seek. Everyone understands there was a detailed white paper into 2014.feedback
