BBC News: Reports " The UK government is to reject calls for a Scottish independence referendum before Brexit after Theresa May said "now is not the time". "
Lets Get Real:
This is an excellent move by the PM, she controls the board when it comes to a 2nd Scottish Vote, she has not ruled it out in the future, but first the UK must get a Brexit deal with the EU, and then see the results. This move out foxes the Scottish FM, when the UK is out of the EU, so will be Scotland, Spain and others have made it clear that Scotland would have to re - apply, the question is on the relationship, there is a strong anti EU vote in Scotland, do Scots want to be run by the jack boots of Berlin, or will they take the NORWAY option, that is following all the rules of EU without being a the table for talks, do not see the Scots falling in love with that option. Thus the EU vote is off the table for the near future, the SNP will blame London, but at least you can bet to London and protest, how many Scots are going to go to Berlin and protest the fish policy, how many speak Germany is the question. The men and women of Scotland who died in WW1, WW1 and other battles must be turning in their grave at how phony the Scottish FM is and how bad that is for Scotland. A good day for the UK.
