SNP has no Legal Right to Restrict Travel in UK



A Force For Good Director, Alistair McConnachie (who has a degree in Scots Law) explains that Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP administration has no legal right to restrict travel within the UK. Railway poster available for purchase here.


Nicola Sturgeon has made a law which says we "must not leave" Scotland for "the area of Manchester City Council" unless we have "a reasonable excuse".


It seems crazy, because it is!


In this article, we look at where she supposedly acquires the legal right to restrict travel, and we consider why the British Government won't clarify the matter.


We conclude that she has no legal right to restrict travel because nothing in the primary legislation – the Coronavirus Act 2020 – gives her the right to legislate upon travel within "the Common Travel Area" of the United Kingdom.
