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

Ms Davidson added: "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.”

Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said Scotland is “already divided enough” and “we do not want to be divided again, but that is exactly what another independence referendum would do.”

‘Democratic decision’

But the party’s UK leader, Jeremy Corbyn, confirmed that his MPs would not attempt to block a request for a Section 30 order.

Mr Corbyn said: “Labour believes it would be wrong to hold another (referendum) so soon and Scottish Labour will oppose it in the Scottish Parliament.

“If, however, the Scottish Parliament votes for one, Labour will not block that democratic decision at Westminster.

“If there is another referendum, Labour will oppose independence because it is not in the interests of any part of the country to break up the UK.”

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said Ms Sturgeon’s SNP had been “working towards this announcement for months” and were “determined to contrive a way to ignore their promise that 2014 was ‘once in a generation’.”

He added: “There is no wide public support for a new and divisive referendum. The big concern is that the SNP’s policy risks leaving Scotland outside of the EU and outside of the UK.”

  2. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
