SNP to pursue "de facto" referendum using General Election

Nicola Sturgeon has said the SNP will continue to pursue indyref2 despite losing its case today in the Supreme Court, including the aim of using the next General Election as a “de facto” referendum.

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

“Only one person is denying democracy and that's Nicola Sturgeon.

“She promised the people of Scotland that when we rejected independence it was for a lifetime.

“She promised the people of Scotland she would only campaign for another referendum if the people of Scotland wanted one - it is undeniable that we do not.

“She promised the people of Scotland they could vote for her in the General Election if they didn't support a referendum - and is now claiming a mandate.

“It’s deeply worrying that the nationalists intend for the next General Election to be another toxic, divisive debate on independence when there are so many more important issues at stake.”
