The SNP is in complete disarray on IndyRef 2 after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon today appeared to contradict her deputy Keith Brown.
At First Minister’s questions today, Jackson Carlaw, Scottish Conservative interim leader asked the First Minister about the SNP deputy leader, Keith Brown’s comments to fellow nationalists that an unofficial referendum should take place, even if the UK Government didn’t allow it.
Jackson Carlaw, Scottish Conservative interim leader said:
“The SNP has been found out. Behind closed doors, Nicola Sturgeon and Keith Brown are telling party activists one thing, while telling the public quite another.
“In public, they tell us they’re focussed on the day job. In private, they’re secretly plotting for an illegal referendum.
“Nicola Sturgeon’s slap-down of her deputy today is a humiliation for Mr Brown and shows the SNP is in complete disarray.
“But it doesn’t hide the fact that their obsession with a second referendum will always come first – and everything else a distant second.”
