Nicola Sturgeon’s dreams of having an independent Scotland could be dashed by a new political campaign group, Alliance for Unity. The group, which was formed by former Labour MP George Galloway, has received a huge following on social media. Mr Galloway has said the party will have the same impact of the Brexit Party in the EU Parliament elections in 2019.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Galloway said: “It will have the same impact on the elections as the Brexit Party and I hope it will achieve the same result.
“Don’t forget that a million people in Scotland voted for Brexit.
“I think if you judge by the wailing and gnashing of teeth of national activists, they are very concerned about it indeed.”
Alliance for Unity plans to secure the defeat of the SNP in May 2021 and bring an “end to the Neverendum on Scotland’s future”.
Mr Galloway added: “A coalition Government that will get Scotland off the hamster wheel that we’ve been on for 13 years.
“Our case is simple, the Scottish people have spoken.
“The referendum was literally called decisive in the Edinburgh agreement which established the referendum.
“Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon said a thousand times, maybe 5,000 times, that this was a ‘once in a generation referendum’, sometimes they even said ‘once in a lifetime’.

“But it hasn’t even been the lifetime of a domesticated rabbit and they speak of nothing else while ignoring the dreadful situation in Scotland’s care homes, hospitals, schools.
“All the big problems that Scotland faces are completely ignored in favour of them getting their ducks in a row to have another go.”
He has since called on Scottish people to vote against the SNP as he likened the election to a referendum on Scottish independence.

Speaking on RT, Mr Galloway said: “Here’s a declaration you never expected to be hearing from me.
“I’ll be voting Conservative in the elections in May on my constituency vote for the first time in my life because my local MSP is a Conservative.
“The challenger to him is the SNP so my view that everyone should vote for the best-placed candidate standing against the SNP. This is a one-off election.
“It’s a referendum on a referendum. It’s an attempt to stop the neverendum.”
