Scottish National Party leader says Boris Johnson has no mandate to take Scotland out of the EU and demands independence vote

cnbc.com/2019/12/13/snp-sturge

@Gargron Something expected . Now let's see how it develops.

@gargron ...but that same SNP leader has been saying that since the original brexit referendum.

Maybe this time there will finally be some action?

@Tak @Gargron She says that for the Scots maybe press for independence again after the pull out. She is not going to press the case with the EU because she doesn't have one. But maybe they will accept Scotland back into the EU if it becomes independent and applies.

@Gargron I'm not sure she knows how to be on tele and not call for independence...

@seven @Gargron If Scotland is given / allowed this independence vote, which results in them voting to leave the UK. Will their taxes need to rise in order to offset what they currently get from the UK government to pay for services e.g schools, health, policing, defence etc etc? If so by how much. if Scotland then joins NATO it would have to commit 2% of GDP to NATO a cost which is, I guess, at present shared by the whole of the UK.

@Gargron
0% chance that they will get an independance vote
