Preamble ..
« on: January 22, 2018, 04:33:27 PM »
The people of Scotland share a common belief in democracy, freedom, fairness, tolerance and equality.

They are entitled to liberty and justice; safety, security and sustainability; health and economic well being; accessibility and participation; partnership and accountability.

The Constitution we might propose enshrines clearly defined principles of governance whilst recognising individual rights and responsibilities and will seek to:
recognise a system of government wherein the people of Scotland are the sovereign power and invest that sovereignty in a Scots Parliament for and of the people.
Define the rights and responsibility of the state and the people, and define the powers, obligations, duties and limitations of the state.
Provide a system of government in which power is shared between national and local government, and managed by elected representatives who are accountable to the people.
