Brexit is a serious problem for Scotland. But that is only because of a more fundamental issue. Our future is not in our hands. Scotland's future is in Westminster's hands. And the only solution to that is to become an independent country.
Be in no doubt about this. The last two years have shown why Scotland needs to be independent. And I am more confident than ever that Scotland will be independent.
And now we have Tory and Labour politicians queuing up to tell us that the decision about Scotland's future belongs not to the people but to Westminster - that they will decide if and when we can choose to be independent. Well, let us send this message today. You can oppose independence. That is your democratic right. But you cannot and you will not deny Scotland's right to choose.
