Sturgeon rules out ‘wild’ indyref2 vote in televised clash



icola Sturgeon said the Scottish government would not hold an “illegal and savage referendum” as the Scottish Tories have alleged.

The talks between SNP leader Ms Sturgeon and her main rivals took place less than 36 hours before voters began to vote.

The televised showdown, broadcast on TUSEN Scotland, saw leaders of the five biggest parties debate issues ranging from the coronavirus to the healthcare system and taxation.

Ms Sturgeon rejected the accusation that a Scottish government led by the SNP was holding an “illegal referendum on feral cats”.

Responding to Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross’ assertion, the Prime Minister said: ‘No, we won’t. I’ve always said that, Douglas.’

She added: “I know in Douglas that your campaign may not have been the most successful campaign, but don’t start slandering and just telling lies about my position and what I said. .

Mr Ross said that if a request was made for another referendum Prime Minister Boris Johnson would reject it.

“Nicola Sturgeon has been clear. If she gets a majority, she will look away from the ball for the recovery of Scotland, for the rebuilding of this country from this pandemic and will seek to hold another referendum on independence.”
