This is an irresponsible and reckless threat from Nicola Sturgeon.

Nicola Sturgeon has announced in the Programme for Government that she ‘intends’ to seek the power to hold a divisive second independence referendum ‘within this term of Parliament’.

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

“This is an irresponsible and reckless threat from Nicola Sturgeon.

“The very last thing that Scotland needs at a time of constitutional crisis is more constitutional chaos.

“This is a stark reminder that the SNP never seeks to bring people together; only to divide people and make communities poorer.

“The First Minister should drop the threat of a divisive independence referendum and honour her promise that the 2014 referendum was a ‘once-in-a-generation’ contest.

“We are stronger together as part of the UK, pooling and sharing resources to grow our economy and protect public services, and keeping the pound.”
