Scottish nationalists treat politics like a game, says May

Scottish nationalists treat politics like a game, says May

May, who insists there should be no second independence referendum, will criticise the SNP, which governs Scotland from its devolved parliament, in an address to her Conservative Party's Scottish conference in Glasgow.

That's given Sturgeon the fodder she needs to demand another independence vote - and she's pledged to do so unless the prime minister softens her plan for leaving the European Union and its single market.

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. Ramping it up about how she is going to go for that second independence referendum.

The Tory said: "My job right now is to stand up for the majority of Scots who say they do not want a second referendum, that is exactly what I'm doing".

The Scottish National Party have accused the Conservatives of a power grab after Theresa May refused to say whether she would hand crucial powers to Scotland after Brexit. Britain's vote to leave the European Union last June has complicated matters further between England and Scotland, as most Scottish voters supported remaining in the EU.

May said her aim in Brexit negotiations is to secure a "good trade agreement that works for the whole of the United Kingdom, but crucially a trade agreement that works for Scotland as well".

The Prime Minister also claimed that it is "very clear" the Scottish people don't want an independence referendum.

She said her first visit outside of England after she took office in July a year ago was to Scotland, because the UK's unity was a priority for her.

"I think that the SNP often treat politics as a game".

While there has been no official statement from United Kingdom officials in this late hour on Sunday, the prospect of even more politcal chaos, not to mention the sudden possibility of Scotland declaring independence has sent cable into a tailspin, with sterling plunging 70 pips in thin trade, sliding below 1.24 on the news.

"We are four nations, but at heart one people", she said.

Addressing politicians pushing for a referendum on whether Scotland should break away from the United Kingdom, she will say the living standards of people in Scotland shouldn't be treated as a game.

"Instead, they have an SNP government obsessed with its own priority of independence, using the mechanisms of devolved government to further its political aims and all the while neglecting and mismanaging public services in Scotland".

I think it is worth beginning by saying that I too voted remain.

The British prime minister suggested that Brexit would require an overhaul of the devolution arrangements agreed under Tony Blair's Labour government.
