'Huge Problems On Our Doorstep Yet The SNP Are Fixated On Independence'

'Huge Problems On Our Doorstep Yet The SNP Are Fixated On Independence'

The SNP argument for a second independence referendum is the fact that a clear majority of Scots voted to remain in the European Union, while a narrow majority of British citizens voted to leave.

The theme of "democratic deficit" that brought Sturgeon, 46, to the SNP has been compounded by Brexit, she says.

The Scottish referendum on independence in 2014 was supposed to be a once-in-a-generation event. But they are right to demand another.

May's speech will come just days before the Scottish parliament votes on a motion to hold a controversial second referendum on separation from the UK.

Ms Sturgeon has also softened her stance on the timing of a second independence vote, saying it was now up for discussion.

Delhi: AAP youth wing leader arrested for robbery
His associates including Najeeb, who managed to escape from the spot, were later arrested. One person also sustained gun shot injuries during the robbery.

If at first you don't secede.

John Curtice, professor of politics at the University of Strathclyde, told the newspaper: "The First Minister has not had any success at all in reducing the level of opposition to holding any kind of referendum in the wake of Brexit".

Sturgeon is planning for the referendum to be held sometimes between autumn 2018 and spring 2019, when the terms of the UK's Brexit deal are known.

Last week the Prime Minster said it was "not the time" for Scotland's voters to have their say on whether to remain part of the United Kingdom, while Britain is in the process of quitting the European Union, and the alternative to independence is unknown. Brexit is about taking control of these issues, not setting policies in stone. European officials have made clear that there would be no "fast track" entry process for a country that was previously part of a member state.

'The third option, a patriotic Scottish way and free from the absolutism of the SNP and the do-nothing-ism of the Tories, is now essential because post-Brexit realities make the status quo redundant and require us to break with the past, ' he is expected to say.

Britain's vote to leave the bloc last June deepened geographical and social divisions in the country, with Scotland and Northern Ireland voting to stay in the bloc while England and Wales backed an exit. Only 15 per cent is with the European Union.

Ms Davidson said: "The SNP is not Scotland and they are acting against the majority wishes of the people of Scotland in putting forward their proposition on Monday".

Yet Brexit creates problems for the nationalists, too.

"Yet now we have Nicola Sturgeon causing even more confusion". If leaving the EU's Single Market would be damaging to Scotland's economy, then Sturgeon's independence plan would surely be four times worse.

"It would ive Scotland the benefits of being in Britain while positively seeking and securing the closest possible ties with Europe". She laments the hardening of Britain's borders with Europe. At no stage do they explain why the necessarily worldwide struggle for socialism makes separation either desirable or necessary, because in reality they have no intention of fighting for a "socialist" Scotland, England, Europe or anywhere else. Scotland would need to reapply, run no more than a three per cent budget deficit (reducing their now deficit of 9.5 per cent would require austerity in Scotland on a level never considered by the apparently evil UK Government), and joining the Euro. So it would be if Scotland left Britain: it would indeed be more sovereign in a pure sense, but at the cost of its seat on the UN Security Council, nuclear weapons, G7 membership and much else that aids true self-determination in the world. Ms Sturgeon has taken a huge risk and in my opinion, it's one she's going to lose.
