Labour cannot pretend to support ordinary workers when at the same time they want to hit them with a fresh tax bombshell - something even the UK Labour party have avoided. As always on tax, on Trident and on Brexit, Labour are at sixes and sevens.feedback

Angus Robertson quotes

If she does not, if she remains intransigent, and if she denies Scotland a choice on our future, she will make Scottish independence inevitable.feedback

The Labour party is not in a position to deliver a pizza at the moment.feedback

What we're seeing yet again is Gordon Brown being wheeled out when the union is in trouble. We are very, very far from that. I don't take this seriously at all.feedback

Scotland's referendum is going to happen and no UK prime minister should dare to stand in the way of Scotland's 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

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 shy away from.feedback

Scotland's referendum is going to happen, and no UK prime minister should dare to stand in the way of Scottish democracy.feedback

Well let me absolutely clear to Theresa May: you are not going to 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

We may see the prime minister travel to different parts of the UK and to show that she is listening but she won't actually reach an agreement on the substance of things. If anybody whether in UK government or fourth estate in Whitehall thinks that somehow this is going to have anything other than massive repercussions to stand in the way of democracy.feedback

One of the things that has made a lot of people change their minds from no in 2014 to yes at the present time are people who are internationally minded, who do want to live in a country that welcomes visitors and people who choose to live in this country that when people come seeking refuge they should be offered refuge. So this is about more than our relationship with Europe – it is about our values as a country. I think that is the view of the UK government. This is about not where we come from but where we are going.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

We will always work to improve our public services – but absurdly ill-informed comments like this do the Prime Minister no favours.feedback

We have no intention whatsoever of seeing Scotland taken out of Europe. We are a European country and we will stay a European country.feedback
