In the years after the Act of Union; Robert Harley 1st Earl of Oxford and Secretary of State made a statement in the of Commons:-

"Have we not bought the Scots and therefore we acquired the right to tax them."

It is a matter of mind set. In his case when Harley said "We" he was referring to the English people. In the case of Theresa May the same mind set applies. The people of Scotland voted against leaving the EU but the people of England voted for leaving. It therefore follows that Mrs May referred to the people of England as "we."  The decisions of the people of Scotland are irrelevant, for after all :-

 " Have we not bought the Scots?"
