Scotland’s Sturgeon puts United Kingdom on independence warning

Scotland’s Sturgeon puts United Kingdom on independence warning”

Nicola Sturgeon has said the UK Government would have to back down and grant an independence referendum if Scotland votes for one.

YesCymru, the grassroots pro Welsh independence campaign group says Sturgeon's statement is proof that the devolution settlement "won't hold", and that Wales has to prepare for independence or be fully incorporated into Westminster.

Tony Miklinski told Express.co.uk that the SNP leader will not stick around if it becomes clear she will not be granted another referendum on Scotland's independence from the United Kingdom.

A further 771 people have tested positive for Covid-19, taking the total number of positive cases in Scotland to 90,081.

Sturgeon and the SNP have argued for a second referendum on Scottish independence since the party's overwhelming victory among Scottish seats in Britain's 2019 general election.

Scots voted 55-45 against independence in a 2014 referendum.

She added: "I think the referendum should, for a whole variety of reasons, be in the earlier part of the next parliament".

Polling has been consistently showing a majority in support for independence in Scotland for months.

"We see right now across the Atlantic that even Trump is having to concede the outcome of a fair, free and democratic election".

"There's still a lot of uncertainty ahead".

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said the government's focus must be exclusively on eliminating COVID-19.

"Independence is in clear sight - and with unity of goal, humility and hard work I have never been so certain that we will deliver it", the first minister is expected to tell the virtual conference according to a pre-released statement. "We haven't even embarked on the economic recovery from the pandemic and the first minister wants to spend months or even years dividing the country over Scotland going its own way with independence." said Rennie according to the BBC.

Her focus on the pandemic was concrete, she stressed while holding herself responsible for the health and wellbeing of Scotland.
