Scottish independence: Nicola Sturgeon willing to discuss vote delay

Scottish independence: Nicola Sturgeon willing to discuss vote delay

"If her concern is timing then - within reason - I am happy to have that discussion", Sturgeon said.

As the debate heats up, former prime minister Gordon Brown on Saturday waded in with a compromise solution: grant Scotland sweeping new autonomy, such as the power to set sales tax and to sign worldwide treaties.

Bank of America suggest these receipts could improve given the rebound in oil prices through 2016 but they are unlikely to reach previous heights towards $100 in some previous years.

The i newspaper reports the comments of Scottish Conservatives leader Ruth Davidson, who has said that holding another independence referendum is not the will of the Scottish people.

Otherwise, this would be a stunningly inappropriate time to hold another vote - for Scotland, and for the United Kingdom as a whole.

Polls will narrow but the Scottish people will vote to stay in the UK. In terms of inward investment, trade, and the diversity it enjoys as a outcome of the free movement of people across the EU, Scotland has been enriched by its membership of an economic and monetary union that suddenly finds its very foundations under threat by dint of centrifugal right-wing forces that have emerged across the continent to an extent not seen since the 1930s.

Scotland's first minister earlier said a new independence vote should be held in 2018, before the final deal on the UK's exit from the European Union is sealed. The Scottish Nationalists are willing to seize on any circumstances to drive our nations apart. The Scots didn't vote yes for independence even when there was no Brexit in the offing. Only the SNP gets to decide what the "voice of Scotland" is.

I was on a radio programme with SNP MEP Alyn Smith when he was asked directly: why would you potentially ditch your long held policy of an independent Scotland immediately trying to join the EU?

In last year's referendum on European Union membership, 62 per cent in Scotland voted for Britain to remain in the bloc, but across the whole kingdom, 52 per cent backed Brexit.

"Nicola Sturgeon is using European Union supporters to get a referendum but will sell them out to get independence". In this respect, Brexit only succeeded in kicking over a constitutional hornet's nest, confirming the extent to which the dominant political cultures in Scotland and England have diverged. 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.

Hyslop explained that single market membership is absolutely crucial, for jobs, services, and people in Scotland and that she would be "absolutely negligent" to not pursue these interests.

"Yet now we have Nicola Sturgeon causing even more confusion.

If we send an envelope to May and she returns it unopened, then we have the United Kingdom government not talking to the Scottish government", said a senior SNP source. If there's a referendum in 2019, and the SNP loses again, will we just have another one in 2022?

Nicola Sturgeon said it should be determined by what is right for the Scottish people, once the terms of Brexit are clear and before it is too late for the country to choose a different path.

The real role played by the advocates of "critical support" for nationalism is made clear by the statement issued by a specially convened meeting of the Scottish Socialist Party Executive.
