Power Grab – A film by Phantom Power

 

Power Grab – The Threat To Scottish Democracy.

An excellent film by the Phantom Power team. This time featuring Alan Bissett and George Reid.

This summarises in great terms what the effects of the No vote in 2014 has given rise to. Looking at the Scottish parliament and what we stand to lose as we see our democracy threatened despite all promises to the contrary. Recent events in terms of the Brexit vote are shown to give a lie to the power of the Scottish parliament as it has been shown to be subservient to Westminster in every aspect. It also exposes the gradualist approach to Independence as we see the granting of certain powers but the withholding of many more, just enough in fact to be nothing but a trap against the furtherance of the Independence movement.
