Scot­land ‘will de­cide’

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

NICOLA STUR­GEON has said Scot­land “will get the right to de­cide our own fu­ture” de­spite Prime Min­is­ter Boris John­son re­ject­ing her plea for a sec­ond in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum.

Scot­land’s First Min­is­ter wrote to the Tory leader days af­ter his vic­tory in last month’s gen­eral elec­tion claim­ing there was a “demo­cratic case” for a fresh vote. But her call for pow­ers to hold such a vote to be trans­ferred to Holy­rood was re­jected by Mr John­son, who claimed a sec­ond bal­lot would lead to con­tin­ued “po­lit­i­cal stag­na­tion” in Scot­land.
