Proposed Amendment to Section 1.6.

  • NSCNICK

    Section 1.6. Section 1.6. Citizenship: All persons, including adopted children, who were legally resident in Scotland at independence, or were born in independent Scotland, will become citizens of Scotland unless retaining nationality of another state. Those retaining dual or multiple nationality will not have the right to vote until they make an oath of loyalty to the Scottish State.

        Section 1.6. This seems to me to be a rather restrictive, "Little Scotland", amendment. I would not like to see Scotland so prickly and inward-looking.
