There is no 'case' for Scots independence

IT'S fascinating to note that, according to the Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, the case for an independent Scotland "has never been greater".

I expect that the over two million Scots that voted against independence, her 21 MPs that lost their seats in June and over one million other Scots who voted to leave the EU would strongly disagree with her assessment.

Quite how this need "has never been greater" is not explained to us.

There has been no 'Brexit bounce' that the SNP anticipated.

Dissatisfaction with the SNP's decade of power is growing and if not for the support of the Scottish Green Party, the SNP couldn't even pass legislation for another independence referendum anyway.
