Nicola Sturgeon: I am not bluffing about second Scottish independence referendum

Baku, January 8 AZERTAC

Nicola Sturgeon has insisted that she is "not bluffing" about her vow to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence if Britain leaves the Single Market after Brexit, according to Telegraph.

Scotland's First minister told the BBC's Andrew Marr show that she felt that he Prime Minister had "no plan" for Brexit and said she wants Scotland to "take control" of its own future".

She added if Theresa May decides to leave the Single Market it would give Scotland "the opportunity to decide whether it wants to be driven off a hard Brexit cliff by right-wing Tory Brexiteers or whether it wants to take control of its own future".

Asked if she seriously thinks "there is no plan", the first minister said: "Yes I do". She added: "I say that with a lot of regret as that puts every part of the UK into a very perilous position."

She highlighted her meeting with Mrs May in Downing Street in October: "I'm not exaggerating too much when I say the prime minister sat on the other side of the table at that meeting and said 'Brexit means Brexit' and not a lot more.

"I came out of that meeting more frustrated, after a meeting of that nature, than I have ever been before."
