Scottish Secretary Alister Jack has said Boris Johnson should not grant the power to hold a second independence referendum, despite the SNP’s General Election gains.
Scotland would vote in favour of independence if Brexit goes ahead, a new poll suggests, but a majority would vote no to leaving the UK if it remains within the EU.
Scottish Conservative leader Jackson Carlaw has urged Scots to vote Tory to put plans for a second independence referendum “in cold storage for good”.
Voters must “act now” to stop the SNP from seeking a Scottish independence referendum next year, Willie Rennie has said.
SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon says she will not soften her stance on demanding a second independence referendum from Labour if Jeremy Corbyn seeks to enter Number 10 in December.
Independence for Scotland is the only way forward, even in the case of a possible future vote for Britain to remain in the EU, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
Nicola Sturgeon has made clear she would prioritise holding a second independence referendum over a fresh vote on Brexit.
Victory for Labour in December’s General Election will remove any need for a second vote on Scottish independence, Richard Leonard has said.
The Liberal Democrats would end negotiations with the EU and stop Brexit “there and then” if the party forms a government, Willie Rennie has pledged.
Jeremy Corbyn has ruled out holding a referendum on Scottish independence in the first term of a Labour government, even if the SNP wins the majority of Scotland’s 59 General Election seats.
Nicola Sturgeon has set out her conditions for supporting a minority Labour government in the event of a hung parliament at Westminster.
Nicola Sturgeon has insisted the SNP has a “cast-iron” mandate to hold another independence vote, as she warned Boris Johnson has “no right to block the democratic wishes of the people of Scotland”.
Boris Johnson has described Jeremy Corbyn and Nicola Sturgeon as “yokemates of destruction” as he ruled out ever allowing another Scottish independence referendum.
Boris Johnson is urging Scots to use next month’s “crucial” General Election to call a halt to Nicola Sturgeon’s plans for a second independence referendum.
Richard Leonard has said he does not believe the SNP has a mandate for another Scottish independence referendum.
Boris Johnson has warned against making 2020 the “year of two referendums” – after Nicola Sturgeon claimed calls for a fresh vote on independence would be “irresistible” if the SNP wins the election in Scotland.
Demand for a Scottish independence referendum will become “irresistible” if the SNP wins the majority of Scottish seats at the General Election, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
Jeremy Corbyn has said a new Scottish independence referendum is “not necessary or desirable”.
Nicola Sturgeon is to demand the power to stage a second Scottish independence referendum just days after December’s general election – with the First Minister saying she believes Jeremy Corbyn will agree to grant it.
Allowing the SNP to hold a second independence referendum would not be a priority for a future Labour government, the party’s Scottish leader said, though he did not rule out such a ballot.
