SNP duo revive independence back door bid

Updated: Jul 25, 2019

SNP politicians Angus MacNeil and Christopher McEleny have resurrected a bid for Scotland to leave the UK without a second referendum being held.

Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:

“This is utter desperation from these senior SNP politicians.

“Scotland voted against independence in a referendum we were promised was once-in-a-lifetime. Trying to get independence through the back door would be simply unacceptable for the people of Scotland.

"Today the steep challenges, including tax rises and public service cuts, that Scotland would face if we broke away from the rest of the UK are exactly the same as they were yesterday. “Whatever your views on Boris Johnson, the very last thing Scotland needs is another divisive independence referendum and more constitutional chaos.

“Nicola Sturgeon has already had to rule out this irresponsible plan, but this challenge to her authority means she must now do so again.”
