First Minister Nicola Sturgeon today released details of her second independence paper at a press conference at Bute House in Edinburgh, entitled “Renewing Democracy through Independence.”
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
"Nicola Sturgeon has absolutely nothing new to say when it comes to her plot to break up the UK.
"The Scottish public will have looked at this stunt and concluded it was a complete waste of time and resources.
"This announcement was merely a run-out of all the usual grievances aimed at stoking up resentment and division.
"It is beyond hypocritical for the First Minister to talk about a democratic deficit when she ignored the 2014 result from the moment it was cast and continually dismisses polling which shows people simply don’t want another referendum.
"Scotland’s future is brightest within the UK, working to bring communities together, creating jobs and opportunities, and investing in our schools and hospitals."
