Sturgeon accused of breaking promise on indyref2 push

The Scottish Conservatives have accused Nicola Sturgeon of breaking her promise to Scottish voters on pushing for another independence referendum.

A leaked agenda for the SNP’s conference next month shows the party is planning to pass motions that would ramp up their demands for indyref2.

During the Scottish Parliament election, the SNP claimed that they wouldn’t push for another referendum within the first 100 days, which was widely reported.

Scottish Conservative Shadow Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, Donald Cameron MSP, said: “Nicola Sturgeon vowed not to push for another divisive referendum for at least 100 days after the Scottish Parliament election. She’s already broken that promise.

“This draft conference agenda shows that the SNP are blatantly working on breaking up the country.

“Instead of concentrating on Covid recovery and protecting jobs, they’re plotting how to divide people at the worst possible moment, just as an economic crisis looms.

“The SNP’s eyes are off the ball again. They won’t focus on what really matters and set aside their narrow and selfish political interests for a mere 100 days, never mind the rest of the Scottish Parliament term.

“We are building Scotland’s real alternative to the SNP to end this era where jobs, schools, drug deaths and every other key issue takes a back seat to the nationalists' obsession with another referendum.”
