British PM, Scottish leader tussle over independence vote


She described the Conservatives as the party of the new center-ground of British politics, rejecting the extremes of Labour's socialist left, UKIP's libertarian right, and the "divisive and obsessive nationalisms" of Plaid Cymru (the Party of Wales) and the SNP (Scottish Nationalist Party). Britain is due to begin the two-year exit process from the 28-nation European Union by the end of this month.

"What we need now is to unite, to come together as a country and to ensure that we can get the best deal for the whole of the United Kingdom".

The call for an independence referendum comes just two-and-a-half years after Scots voted to keep the union.

"I think we will find the Prime Minister is not in a position she can sustain and I would say to her, in all sincerity here in trying to be consensual, we seem to have a starting point of agreement that both of us think that now is not the right time for a referendum".

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told Sky News the Prime Minister's opposition to a second independence referendum is "unsustainable".

Sturgeon will seek approval in the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh for a new vote next Wednesday, but London has the right to block the request.

The Prime Minister used her speech to the Conservative Spring Forum in Cardiff to suggest that Ms Sturgeon had been plotting since previous year to use Brexit as a "pretext" for a new referendum.

Ms Sturgeon has described this as a "democratic outrage" and is pressing on with her plan to hold a vote at Holyrood next week, giving her the green light to seek permission for a referendum.

The first minister said on Monday the vote had to be held between autumn 2018 and spring 2019, insisting it was essential it was held as close as possible to the Brexit deal being signed in March 2019.

"I think most people across Scotland, whether they would vote yes or no to independence will be appalled at the idea that a Conservative government with no mandate in Scotland, seeking to stand in the way of a democratically elected government with a clear mandate", Nicola Sturgeon said outside the parliament on Thursday.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's plans for a second independence referendum were rejected by May. Though the compulsions are different, the economic factor is the common grouse against the European Union and United Kingdom. of both Britain and Scotland. The only other way the reserved matters in the Scotland Act can be amended would be through an Act of the UK Parliament.
