May 2, Sturgeon nil: The SNP has no case for a second referendum on Scottish independence

First, the polls have shown a falling demand for a second referendum, dropping to only 29 per cent last month. Second, it was a well known risk that if Scotland stayed in the UK an EU referendum was always probable and the outcome of Brexit always possible.Cameron had made his commitment in the Bloomberg speech of January 2013 and later in June the Conservatives brought an EU Referendum Bill before Parliament. Voters had to take account of the circumstances when they came to vote in the first independence referendum. Indeed, the SNP did their best to ensure everyone knew about the “threat” of Brexit by including an explanatory paragraph in Alex Salmond’s White Paper prepared in advance of the independence vote.Sturgeon can use phrases such as Scotland being “dragged out of the EU” to whip up sentiment for her divisive case, but the reality is that Scots chose the UK in full possession of the facts of what might happen down the road.Read more: Time to dust down the case against the SNPThe political reality that May has called out is that, despite the collapse of its economic case, the SNP wants independence at any price and cares not that Scotland faces two more years of uncertainty that will damage already stagnating growth. Investment will slow down further, business decisions will be postponed and jobs will be lost. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeEveryday WellnessWhat Happens To Your Body When You Eat Two Bananas A DayEveryday WellnessSmartWatch AdvisorWhy Is Everybody Snapping Up This New 49€ Smartwatch?

Wednesday 15 March 2017 4:15 am There was only one way Sturgeon could save face with her nationalist legions – and on Monday she announced she would seek the power from Westminster to hold a second independence referendum between Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019.Scrambling to find a pretext for breaking her word that the previous referendum was a “once in a lifetime opportunity”, Sturgeon played to type by adopting the role of victim on Scotland’s behalf.She claimed the Scottish government’s attempts to find a different EU arrangement had been ignored and there would now be a significant material change in Scotland’s relationship with the UK. Neither is true.Read more: Indyref2 was inevitable – and it’ll be tougher to win than the firstSturgeon had previously claimed there would only be another referendum if there was a consistent and clear lead of 60/40 in the polls for a period of six months – or a significant change in material circumstances. Neither has happened. Brian MonteithBrian Monteith is a former member of the Scottish and European parliaments She said “Brexit means Brexit” and then explained the process and timing – and is now delivering on all three.Just as dogged has been May’s reasoned but robust defence of British interests against an embittered first minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon. Even while some votes remained to be counted on the morning after the Brexit referendum, the headstrong SNP leader had rushed to announce a second independence vote was “highly likely”.This bravado and bluster was repeated regularly but May continued saying the negotiated deal would be for all of the UK. Seeing her threats were getting her nowhere, Sturgeon then modified her stance to say Scotland should be able to have its own deal to remain in the Single Market. But May out thought her again.Read more: Is Nicola Sturgeon deluded to think Scotland can get a special Brexit deal?First, May announced in her Lancaster House speech in January that all of the UK would leave the Single Market and its Customs Union, while the EU made it known there could be no separate deal for Scotland. Sturgeon’s proposals were suddenly unworkable. Then May made it clear she would not countenance a second referendum while the delicate Brexit negotiations were ongoing and the outcome was unknown, effectively calling Sturgeon’s bluff. whatsapp Sturgeon says there should be a second vote in the next two years so the Scottish people can have the evidence to decide their future. This is a smokescreen, for while the UK’s Brexit negotiations should be clearer no-one will know what the membership terms for Scotland re-entering the EU will be.What about Schengen and euro membership, handing its fisheries over – and what will it pay for EU membership – when the rest of the UK could be gaining access to the Single Market for free? Not least, will Spain, Belgium, France and Greece be keen to encourage nationalist forces in their own lands?The referendum may now happen but in May the SNP face a more formidable leader than the last time round.

DEBATE: After a breathtaking leadership challenge to the Prime Minister, has anything actually changed?

first_img But, despite this impasse, the vote represents a huge sea-change for future proceedings at Westminster.Theresa May’s “win” was by no means convincing – she no longer has the support of over a third of her MPs and, of those who have pledged their loyalty, 131 are Remainers, compared to 31 backing Leave. The arithmetic is stark.May is now firmly in the hands of Remain-backing MPs. The power of the PM has always depended on an interplay between her and the cabinet, the party, and parliament. In order to win the confidence vote, she has promised not to fight another election. In doing so, she has given away her greatest power-card. She is severely weakened, guaranteeing that more change is set to come.Ben Kelly, commentator for Reaction, says NO.This doesn’t bode well. A third of the parliamentary Conservative party has no confidence in Theresa May – 37 per cent of Tory MPs think that they need a new Prime Minister with a new Brexit plan. May must win over many of them to get her deal through.She needs cross-party support from moderate MPs, but she is still tone deaf and has the same appalling lack of skills in diplomacy Friday 14 December 2018 9:36 am whatsapp Mo LovattMo Lovatt is a lecturer in Cultural and Creative Industries and co-chair of The Great Debate. and Ben Kelly DEBATE: After a breathtaking leadership challenge to the Prime Minister, has anything actually changed?

As it stands, the PM can’t win a vote on a deal she can’t renegotiate, and it’s doubtful that a rather superficial protocol from the EU will boost her support. Yet after the vote, as before, the choices remain the same.Nothing has changed. The withdrawal agreement is still the only deal on the table.
