A former SNP special adviser, Campbell Gunn, has warned First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that a second independence referendum in the lifetime of this Parliament is ‘very remote indeed’.
A recent opinion poll by Survation found that only 21 per cent of people in Scotland support indyref2 before 2021.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“Campbell is right, which begs the question why is Nicola Sturgeon devoting taxpayer-funded Government resources to it and spending precious Parliamentary time on it?
“Only a fifth of people in Scotland want another divisive independence referendum within her timescale.
“She should drop her unwanted plan and get back to the day job of fixing our schools, hospitals and the economy.
“The majority of people in Scotland have had enough of her game-playing and want to remain in the UK.”
