Sturgeon: Indyref2 now ‘highly likely’ before 2020
IT IS “highly likely” Scotland will be asked to vote on independence before 2020, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
Speaking on ITV’s Peston show, the First Minister challenged Theresa May to stop the breakup of the UK by listening to the Scottish Government’s demands to remain in the European single market.
During last week’s SNP conference Sturgeon said she would soon publish a package of proposals for new powers on immigration and international deals for Holyrood, which would be the base for Holyrood-Westminster negotiations on Brexit.
If those discussions break down then a second independence referendum would seem inevitable.
