Nicola Sturgeon warns the UK Government against "trying to puncture Scotland’s life boat" by blocking indyref2

Nicola Sturgeon has warned the UK Government against blocking or delaying her plans to hold a second independence referendum before the UK leaves the EU, with the First Minister saying it would be “tantamount to the UK Government, having sunk the ship with the Brexit vote, trying to puncture Scotland’s life boat as well”.

Speaking at Bute House today the FM outlined her intention to seek approval from the Scottish Parliament to ask for a Section 30 order from the UK Government order next week and then hold a second independence referendum between autumn 2018 and spring 2019.

Sturgeon said the vote should take place before Brexit, saying: “For Scotland to be in a position to negotiate in a timely fashion our own relationship with Europe it is important we indicate that desire and intention before the UK leaves, or at the very least at a short time frame after they do so”.


It's not going to be easy- having May hanging on to your legs while you're trying to swim.

ive not seen any back pedaling to be honest and even is a some scots dont trust the EU it pales in significance to the amount that want to be in the EU,
the last few elections are testament to that.

id imagine loads more scots mistrust the UK than anything else.

"id imagine loads more scots mistrust the UK than anything else." you may be right . this brexit thing is still such a hot potato and now the election may be influenced by these latest terrorist attack.

not much to do with Scotland i guess but sadly this Canadian girl, Christine Archibald was killed on London bridge.
just arrived to visit with her fiance'. she died in his arms.https://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=...act=mrc&uact=8

Scotland has a Tim Hortons now that is real progress.
