Scottish Conservatives to Oppose a Second Independence Referendum

“The First Minister’s proposal offers Scotland the worst of all worlds. Her timetable would force people to vote blind on the biggest political decision a country could face.”


The leader of the Scottish Conservatives and the leader of the opposition in the Scottish Parliament, Ruth Davidson MSP, will oppose any moves to hold a second referendum on Scottish Independence.

Ruth Davidson said:

“Nicola Sturgeon has today given up acting as First Minister for all of Scotland.”

“People have said time and again they do not want to go back to the division of a second referendum.”

“Nicola Sturgeon promised the 2014 referendum would be ‘once in a generation’.”

“Today she has ignored the majority in Scotland who do not want a referendum and has decided instead to double down on division and uncertainty.”

“The First Minister’s proposal offers Scotland the worst of all worlds. Her timetable would force people to vote blind on the biggest political decision a country could face.”

And she continued:

“This is utterly irresponsible and has been taken by the First Minister purely for partisan political reasons.”

“Both No and Yes voters have been urging her to put this to one side – but because of her own rash decision to use Brexit in a bid to lever support for independence, she has ignored them completely.”

“Quite simply, today the First Minister has failed in her job to act in the interests of all of us.”
