Sturgeon's claims are contradictory

I read with interest the comments of Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on the illegal Catalan independence referendum. Ms Sturgeon claims that you "cannot ignore" the two million votes cast in favour of Catalan independence.

I'd remind Ms Sturgeon that 2,001,926 voted in favour of Scotland remaining part of the Union in 2014. Despite this vote, Ms Sturgeon's party have refused to take a second independence referendum off the table. I'd suggest Ms Sturgeon take her own advice.
