Bar signatories to the Scottish Claim of Right (1988) from holding office in British government.

Comment 1st August 2010
Signatories to the Scottish Claim of Right affirm that the interests of Scotland are paramount over those of all other countries, including those of other parts countries in the United Kingdom.
The claim states:
"We, gathered as the Scottish Constitutional Convention, do hereby acknowledge the sovereign right of the Scottish people to determine the form of Government best suited to their needs, and do hereby declare and pledge that in all our actions and deliberations their interests shall be paramount."

Why does this matter?

The Scottish Claim of Right was signed by 58 of Scotland's 72 MPs. Signatories included Gordon Brown, Alastair Darling, Chales Kennedy and Sir Menzies Campbell
In swearing to make Scotland's interests paramount in all of their actions and deliberations, , signatories to the  Scottish Claim of Right effectively agree to discriminate against the interests of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Those who sign the Scottish Claim of Right therefore have a fundamental conflict of interest with the interests of the rest of the Union.
Signatories to  the Scottish Claim of Right should consequently be barred from holding office in the British government .
