Theresa May: Scotland's government 'obsessed' with independence

Theresa May: Scotland's government 'obsessed' with independence”

Theresa May insisted there is no economic case for breaking up the United Kingdom.

This prompted Sturgeon to say a second referendum for Scottish independence could not be ruled out.

Theresa May has pledged to make a "positive, optimistic and passionate case" for the Union as she laid the ground for a second independence referendum.

Echoing the rhetoric of the 2014 campaign as she addressed the Scottish Conservative conference in Glasgow's Scottish Event Campus, the UK Tory leader said independence "simply does not add up", highlighting a decline in the drop in oil price, the currency and central bank. "We must avoid any unintended consequences for the coherence and integrity of a devolved United Kingdom as a result of our leaving the EU".

Theresa May "opened fire" on Nicola Sturgeon as she "goaded" the first minister over Brexit and independence, is how the Scottish Sun reports the story.

Despite the SNP's grip on political power in Scotland, Downing Street believes Sturgeon is in a weak position on independence.

It now appears that the SNP has gotten its wishes, and despite her stern denials, Theresa Mays team is preparing for Scotland to potentially call independence referendum in March to coincide with triggering of Article 50, the Times of London reported late on Sunday, citing unidentified senior government sources.

She implied the entire devolution settlement of 1998, which set up the Scottish parliament and Welsh assembly, was now up for renegotiation, risking a furious row with the Scottish government.

If it is reintroduced, the visa requirement would be temporary, the European Union says. The European Commission has until the summer to enforce the measure.

"The SNP's neglect and mismanagement of Scottish education has been a scandal, but sadly it doesn't stop there", added May, accusing the party of other failings. "I am determined that we should do better than that for our key industries".

She said the First Minister had not yet asked for a Section 30 order, granting Holyrood the authority to hold an independence referendum, with Ms Davidson refusing to say if the UK Government should block such a request.

The Prime Minister used a speech to declare that Scottish Government will not be getting control over policy areas such as fishing and agriculture in the wake of Brexit.

The problem grew bigger when May announced her plans for a "clean exit" from the European Union, where the United Kingdom would lose its access to the European Union single market against Scotland's desire.

Agüero scored a second goal in the second half before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho closed out the scoring in stoppage time . There are three months left and the only thing I think is to give the best in these three months and then you will see.

"While the SNP propose that decision-making should remain in Brussels, we will use the opportunity of Brexit to ensure that more decisions are devolved back into the hands of the Scottish people". But he said the Prime Minister's decision to leave the European single market was straining relations.
