BREAKING: Nicola Sturgeon Shelves Referendum Until After Brexit
Today Nicola Sturgeon revealed she will cease campaigning for another referendum until after Brexit. Scotland held its referendum back in 2014 where the Scottish people voted 55% ‘No’ with an 84.6% turnout. Clearly, Sturgeon has not learnt that no means no.
The decision to shelve the independence referendum comes after the humiliating loss of nearly 40% of their seats in the General Election. Since the UK voted for Brexit, Sturgeon has been seen almost daily trying to bully her way into another independence referendum. I don’t think it’s reasonable to demand that kind of vote again for at least 8 years. It’s almost saying to the voters ‘You voted wrong, so have another try’.While she shifts her attention away from the referendum, she said the SNP will
While she shifts her attention away from the referendum, she said the SNP will
redouble our efforts and put our shoulders to the wheel in seeking to influence the Brexit talks in a way that protects Scotland’s interests.
Which basically translates to that she wants the UK to stay in the European single market and keep our borders nice and open. I’m so glad we have Ms. Sturgeon to help us out, we would be so utterly lost without her.
Sturgeon has said she wants to know what the Brexit deal will look so the Scottish people will have ‘better clarity’ of what the future looks like. Which is exactly what her opponents have been saying since Brexit, thanks for finally listening. Her government has already put together draft legislation and secured Holyrood’s backing to ask for permission to vote. If the Brexit deal does not turn out how Sturgeon wants it to, I have no doubt she will pursue the vote. In my personal opinion, I highly doubt the EU will accept Scotland if they break off from the UK. This splintering is the exact thing that the EU is against.
Let me know if you think Sturgeon will succeed in getting Scottish Independence because I’m not quite sure the Scottish want to leave the UK.
