This Argument On Scottish Independence Got VERY Heated

Nicola Sturgeon demanding a second independence referendum last year

Ahead of the launch this week of a new blueprint for Scottish independence - which will reportedly recommend the creation of a Scottish currency - Ms Sturgeon spoke of "an important moment" in the SNP's case for breaking away from the rest of the UK.

"So I believe most of the UK's fishing infrastructure should be based north of the border".

"As you know, we've had a growth commission looking at the economic opportunities of independence".

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Sunday she would again consider another vote on independence for Scotland when the British government offers some certainty over Brexit.

A row over whether Scotland could keep pound sterling after independence dominated debate ahead of the 2014 "No" vote.

Ms Sturgeon said the timing of any future independence referendum was an issue for "later", referring back to previous comments where she said a decision would be taken once there was more "clarity" about the outcome of Brexit.

"Instead of a debate based on despair, this is an opportunity to turn our minds to a debate that's all about hope, optimism and ambition for Scotland".

CBP has long claimed wide-ranging authority in the so-called " buffer zone ", or the 100-mile range within US borders. Ana Suda recorded last week's incident at a convenience store in Havre.

Ministers should make sure Brexit properly benefits Scotland amid potential complacency over the possibility of another independence referendum, the Conservative leader in the country, Ruth Davidson, has argued.

Scottish Tory finance spokesman Murdo Fraser MSP said: "The SNP Growth Commission has always been more about promoting independence than it was about growing the economy".

"The SNP will pursue independence at any cost, and the cost to the Scottish public will be staggering". We would give up our say over interest rate policy, exchange rate policy and inflation.

"That should be our goal so people, including those who now support independence in Scotland, feel the United Kingdom is theirs too", she said.

"People are tired after more than a decade of SNP rule, in which grievance politics have taken precedence over schools, the economy and building a sustainable health service".

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said: "With the economic and social impact of Brexit becoming more and more obvious, you would think that Nicola Sturgeon would start to recognise the damage that tearing up a successful union does".
