Nicola Sturgeon vows to press on with Independence Referendum after Tory 'humiliation'

May 28, 2019
The Scotsman

The Scottish Government's Constitutional Relations Secretary Mike Russell is expected to publish a Bill on Wednesday setting out the rules for a second independence referendum before attempting to secure the power to hold a vote from Westminster.

Ms Sturgeon told Bauer Radio today: "The message from these elections in Scotland is that we reject Brexit. We rejected it in the referendum, we rejected it again in these elections...What the election demonstrated and re-iterated if you like is that Scotland and the rest of the UK are on very different political paths. If we don't want to have a future imposed on us as a country then we we must have the opportunity to choose our own future. That's the choice I want to give to the people of Scotland later in this term of Parliament."

A referendum will require Section 30 order from the next Tory leader, transferring the power to Holyrood, but this won't stop the Scottish Government pushing ahead with the legislation. Mr
Russell will also update MSPs on plans for Irish-style citizens' assemblies in Scotland on Wednesday.
