Scottish Tory leader: Brexit needs cross-party approach

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 02:10

The Scottish Daily Express leads with a similar story, claiming Ms Sturgeon signalled she could "shelve" plans for a second independence referendum following the outcome of Thursday's poll.

The separatist Scottish National Party (SNP) nevertheless remains Scotland's biggest party despite some punishing losses, including former first minister Alex Salmond as well as the party's current deputy leader Angus Robertson.

Dr John Lee, Scottish Grocers Federation head of policy, said: "The results in Scotland mean that a second independence referendum is highly unlikely".

Popular Ms Davidson said the Tories had enjoyed a "historic night" - as the odds on her running the entire party tumbled.

The SNP argued that Scots deserved a do-over of the 2014 independence referendum, which the "leave" campaign lost by around 5%.

In Britain's constantly shifting political landscape, she has reached Scottish voters by sticking to a message they not only understand but care about, as well as being more ordinary than the elite associated with her party 400 miles (644 km) down south in London.

"That's why they should hold an early vote in the Scottish Parliament to sist, delay and stop any independence referendum in this parliamentary term".

The Scottish Parliament gave the green light for a second independence referendum in March, but any vote would need to be ratified by Westminster, and Prime Minister Theresa May has already rejected this timetable. I didn't go to umpteen seats because I was told they were fine.

The Liberal Democrats took their tally of MPs in Scotland from one to four, with former United Kingdom government minister Jo Swinson one of the victors after winning back the East Dunbartonshire seat she had lost in 2015. But the end of the SNP's one party state might well be in sight - with the addition of hard-working Labour MPs as a result.


Uncertainty is also the fate of the minority Conservative government she is forming, with the support of the Democratic Unionists from Northern Ireland.

Ruth Davidson spoke as she gathered with the new Scottish Tory MPs in Stirling.

The Daily Telegraph reported that a strengthened Ms Davidson now wanted to "tear her Scottish party away from English control" after tensions during the campaign, and that her aides were working on a deal to set up a separate organisation in Scotland, albeit with a close relationship with the English party.

"Now, we have to wait and see how things shake out".

"The Prime Minister was the leader that made sure that we came out with the largest number of votes and seats, she has my full support as she makes sure that we move forward with a strong government", she said.

Just two years after her party's landslide victory, Ms Sturgeon said she was "disappointed" at SNP losses but described the result as "a disaster" for Mrs May.

She also insisted her party had won the election in Scotland - returning more MPs than its rivals combined.

In 2015 Nicola Sturgeon's party dominated the election in Scotland by winning 56 seats out of a possible 59. Westminster leader Angus Robertson in Moray and Salmond in Gordon were both unceremoniously unseated.
