On the Supreme Court Ruling on Scotland's Independence Referendum

by Albert Semple, 24 Nov 2022

  1. We're out of Europe, earning less,
  2. And right-wing thought is in ascendance.
  3. Now's the time we should address
  4. The question of our independence.

  5. To hold a vote we need consent
  6. From Tory leaders unelected,
  7. With incentive to prevent
  8. The people's will from being effected.

  9. Another country oversaw
  10. The definition of our nation:
  11. London lawyers wrote the law
  12. Denying self-determination.
