Sturgeon seeks second Scottish independence referendum.. to give Scotland to Brussels?

Scotland deserves another say after the Brexit vote, says the First Minister, but Sky sources say she was pressured to act.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she will seek approval next week for a second referendum on Scottish independence.

She said a new vote should be held between autumn 2018 and spring 2019.

However, Sky sources say Ms Sturgeon had not been convinced about calling for the referendum so soon, fearing it is not yet winnable.

Former first minister Alex Salmond and his supporters are said to have pressured her to act.

Ms Sturgeon, making the announcement in Edinburgh, said she believed people would now choose to break away from the UK in order to stay in the EU.

    Scotland will have to reapply to NATO & the EU if it votes to leave UK


    NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says Scotland would have to apply to join the alliance and would then face a vote by its 28 members.

    The NATO secretary general has told Sky News that Scotland would no longer be a member of NATO if it voted to leave the UK.

    Jens Stoltenberg was commenting hours after Scottish First Minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon announced her intention to hold a second independence referendum.

    He said: "If it happens (Scotland becomes independent), then UK will continue as a member of NATO but a new, independent state has to apply for membership and then it is up to 28 allies to decide whether we will have a new member.

    "By leaving the UK, it will also leave NATO.

    Sturgeon's bid for EU membership means an independent Scotland 'would be run by Eurocrats'


    SCOTLAND would be run by Brussels bureaucrats if Nicola Sturgeon achieves her dream of pulling her nation out of Britain and remaining in the European Union, Ukip’s Scottish leader has claimed.

    On Monday, the First Minister announced her plans to hold a second Scottish independence referendum between the autumn of 2018 and the spring of the following year - in the middle of crucial Brexit negotiations.

    David Coburn, who is firmly opposed to a break-up of the Union, claimed that Scotland would be subject to “austerity max” on the level Greece was forced to endure if the First Minister keeps Scotland in the EU.

    Austerity max - an economic policy which allows no new borrowing to fund spending in order to reduce the deficit - could leave Scotland facing financial ruin.

    Nigel Farage SLAMS Nicola Sturgeon's 'FALSE' referendum: 'It's NOT independence'


    NIGEL FARAGE slammed Nicola Sturgeon and her hopes for a second Scottish Independence Referendum during his appearance on Good Morning Britain today.

    When quizzed by presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid if allowing the Scots to vote to leave the United Kingdom was a good idea, the politician pleaded for the referendum not to take place without the public being fully informed about the position of the country once it leaves Brussels. 

    He explained: "It's not independence. I don't mind if the Scots want to vote for independence and be separate from the UK and separate from the European Union to be a genuinely independent country to have that debate and make that choice. 

    "I would be very sad as I want us to preserve the union but for goodness sake, do not allow the Scots to go through a second false referendum when what they are being offered is not actually the truth."

    Farage went on to slam Sturgeon for not explaining to the public that they would not be entirely independent.
