Scottish Secretary Mundell to step down on the broken section 11 promise

The Scottish devolution referendum of 1997 was a pre-legislative referendum held in Scotland on 11 September 1997 over whether there was support for the creation of a Scottish Parliament with devolved powers, and whether the Parliament should have tax-varying powers. The result was 'Yes-Yes': a majority voted in favour of both proposals, and the Parliament was established following an election in 1999. Turnout for the referendum was 60.4%.
Today for the first time the powers devolved to Scotland and the powers we the people of Scotland was given a guarantee the EU ref would witness powers returning to Holyrood.
Section 11 Bill could have made this secure.
This bill did not go through the house of commons despite assurances from David Mundell Scottish secretary, It will now go through the unelected house of Lords in which no Scottish or Welsh elected official from the people exists.
It amounts to a power grab.
The Scottish Parliament is under serious threat as is the Welsh assembly.
Please add your voice to David Mundell who has betrayed the people to step down with immediate effect
