Sturgeon insists Scots have a ‘right’ to another independence vote

Scotland is a “nation on the brink of making history”, Nicola Sturgeondeclared, as she insisted the country’s people have the “right” to choosetheir own future in a second independence referendum.

While Prime MinisterBoris Johnson has vetoed SNP calls for a fresh vote on the issue, the FirstMinister has said she hopes another ballot could be held in the early part ofthe next term of the Scottish Parliament.

The question is set to dominate nextMay’s Holyrood elections, with Ms Sturgeon’s party using the campaign to stepup its demands for another referendum.

Recent opinion polls have suggestedthat a majority of Scots now support the country becoming independent.

And MsSturgeon, addressing the SNP annual conference, told party activists that “thepeople of Scotland have the right to choose their future”.

She stated:“Scotland is now a nation on the brink of making history.

“Independence is inclear sight – and if we show unity of purpose, humility and hard work, I havenever been so certain that we will deliver it.”

Scotland’s Leadership Has 'Failed', Salmond Tells Inquiry [Video]

Scotland’s Leadership Has 'Failed', Salmond Tells Inquiry

Alex Salmond has said there is a failure of leadership in Scotland as he attacked First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. In his opening statement to a Holyrood inquiry into the Scottish Government's unlawful investigation of sexual harassment claims made against him, Scotland's former first minister accused his successor Ms Sturgeon of using a Covid press conference to "effectively question the result of a jury". Mr Salmond is testifying on the botched government investigation which was found to be "tainted by apparent bias" by the court. He was acquitted of 13 charges of sexual assault in a criminal trial, and he successfully challenged the lawfulness of the government investigation. The current Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has insisted there was no conspiracy against Mr Salmond, and she is due to appear before the committee to give evidence next week.
