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.”
