SNP's Ian Blackford wants Indyref2 THIS YEAR!

A divisive second independence referendum could take place ‘as early as late 2021’, according to SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford MP.

Mr Blackford is reported on PA saying: “I want to see that referendum happen as quickly as is practically possible, I think it's in everybody's interest that that is the case.”

He added: "(Scottish Constitution Secretary Mike Russell MSP) has talked about a six-month period once the legislation is triggered which could be in June, so it could be the case we could face a referendum as early as late 2021."

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

“These are astonishingly reckless comments.

“While people are losing their lives and livelihoods, the entire focus should be on recovery from the pandemic.

“Unfortunately, it’s clear that Ian Blackford and the SNP are more interested in dividing the people of Scotland than bringing us together.”

It’s high time the full cost implications of Independence were put to the Scottish public. The NHS for a start would be downgraded with taxation going through the roof. Also the SNP shout about Scotland needs more immigrants at a time when we are about to have more unemployed due to Covid effect on business. The question needs to be asked with fewer people employed where the income from taxes will come.

The SNP track record on wast public money is legend. Prestwick Airport, Ferguson Shipyard. Hospitals etc
