The SNP are a bunch of whinging haters who think they are better off outside the UK but inside the EU. They do about 70% of their trade with the rest of the UK, so you can see the flaw in their argument... The SNP don't want independence, they don't want to leave the EU! [/quote] Well said Sir/Madam [/quote] Summed it up nicely. [/quote] yep tbh it's a win win for the snp they don't have a referendum to distract them they do have to knuckle down and get on with brexit no one in Scotland will thank them for pulling a corbyn and obstructing everything they can because they can- because they can't really- not with the tory majority as it is so , they get to blame the tories for another 5 years while fudging minimal accountability for themselves - something they like very much and are good at and this act of 'imposition' from Whitehall was exactly what started the small minority 'snp ' back in the day (70's) and now they run Scottish parliament, Scottish councils and have a healthy 50+ mp's in Westminster and have permanently ended the 2 party system north of the border I thank thatcher for single handedly catapulting Scottish independence into the mainstream from that small minority and this kind of stunt just does the same for the next generation of Scottish voters it-Scottish independence - will come it will be right for both Scotland and the rest of the uk when it comes but it isn't right now we are stronger together for the next few years and that's how it's going to have to roll :) [/quote]

PM Boris Johnson has rejected SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon’s request for a second Scottish independence referendum, claiming it “would continue the political stagnation that Scotland has seen for the last decade."
Sturgeon - the first minister of Scotland - is on record as saying that she wants to hold a second referendum later this year, believing that she has a mandate following the 2019 general election that saw her party win 48 of the 59 seats in Scotland.
However, in a letter to Sturgeon, published on social media on Tuesday, Johnson contended that she and her predecessor promised that the 2014 independence referendum would be a “once in a generation vote.”
