Does Nicola Sturgeon Really WANT Indyref2?

Does Nicola Sturgeon Really WANT Indyref2?

Editor writes…

Nicola Sturgeon:  “Now, independence does not guarantee success for any country and we should never pretend that it does…”  Quite.  This should be printed on T-shirts to be mandated as pro-indyref2 garb out there in the streets if and when the next independence propaganda pandemic strikes.

I began watching the above press conference live (published on YouTube by The Independent) expecting to hear substantial news, less propaganda, more detailed plans for “moving forward” – i.e. a date for the long-prophesied second referendum on moving OUT of the UK.  There’s nothing. I’m puzzled. Are you? Maybe I missed something – confession:  I didn’t start watching until more than half-way through, and I’m having to abandon ship as she takes questions from journalists.

As I close down my computer for the foreseeable future (which is never, really “foreseeable”, theologically speaking) Ms Sturgeon is still stuck on the I’ll say more soon mantra.

Yeah right.  Frankly, I don’t think even she wants independence – not really.  Do you?

    Frankly, I don’t think she knows what she wants, and that she is motivated by pure racism. Her overweening and obvious hatred of the British blinds her to any sensible solution to the problems of Scotland and the UK in general. If she takes Scotland back into the EU, it will have to accept the Euro as currency, and also become part of the Schengen Zone. Good luck with getting the people of Scotland to agree to those terms, Nicola. https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/article-49-rejoining-eu

      WF,

      Already, on local radio, interviews with people on the street included those who had voted NO last time but now, thanks to Boris (!) will vote YES next time, and the usual numpties who think Nicola was wonderful in her handling of the pandemic, much better than Boris. Honestly, to say they’re brainwashed is far too kind. I can think of other words, but I’m due in the confessional any day now 😀

        A wee Megalomaniac without a Doubt . She just can’t keep off the TV . Am sure when She retires the Rotten BBC will have a Job for Her .
        Of course that only goes if the License Fee is still Enforced.

        Sorry I never watched the Wumin as Next to Jimmy Martin She gives Me The Boak . How the Vloters Vote for Her is no Mystery.
        Remember the S.N.P. have lowered the age for a Referendum to 16 and all those Young Pride Voters can’t wait to Vote. Were I Boris I would ask Sturgeon Her views on Rwanda. If She said She disagreed ad send last Months Illegals to Scotland, maybe that would waken people up. BTW last Month’s total of illegals who entered The U.K was over 10,000. I wonder if they can now afford to put their Heating on.

        Faith of our Fathers,

        To me, it was that lowering of the voting age to 16 is proof positive that she knows she won’t win the vote if she relies on mature adults. It’s quite easy to whip up nationalism in the young – it’s a really cynical move which I hope backfires on her.

        “A wee Megalomaniac” – agreed.

      Westminsterfly,

      The desire to re-enter the EU is madness. Your link reveals that it would not be straightforward even if possible. For some reason Sturgeon thinks Scotland would be independent if it leaves the UK and joins the EU, i.e. stop taking instructions from Westminster, and start taking them from Brussels. It’s so far beyond any intelligent thought process that I am lost for words.

      As for her speech yesterday – her claims are debunked in this report:

    Has this become about policies or personalities? I’m no Boris fan – far from it – but I’d rather have him than a re-entry to the EU, and having to have the Euro and the Schengen Zone. If they don’t understand that, they aren’t brainwashed, they’re brain dead. Also, don’t forget that the media will nearly always air the interviews of those who agree with their agenda.

      Westminsterfly,

      It’s about personalities. I was appalled to hear her put “Boris” on her list of problems. How unprofessional! But she is very unprofessional -she showed the same lack of class when mocking Donald Trump on American TV.

        Josephine,

        That shocked me, too – “Brexit, Covid, Boris Johnson”.

        She completely lacks the skills and diplomacy, and the class, necessary in a national leader.

        I can’t even remember what it was like to live under a NON-SNP government, and I’m losing hope that I will live to see another one, to refresh my memory, LOL!

    I’d like to know just how much money she is spending on these “papers” – booklets with pages and pages of “information” printed inside – who reads this stuff?

    To answer the question, no, I don’t think she really wants independence – she’s doing very nicely, thank you very much, because she can blame Westminster for everything that is going wrong and as those of us who live in Scotland know, there’s not a lot that is NOT going wrong in Scotland. Health, Education, Transport, Infrastructure, it’s all in a bad way, but it’s all Boris’s fault. If indyref2 delivers, then it will soon become very clear that it’s not Boris at all – it’s the SNP government.

    It was chilling to hear her talking about wanting the levers of power, the autonomy to control us. Having seen how she controlled us, with glee, during the past two years, I can tell you that nothing, but nothing, will persuade me to vote for indyref2, absolutely no chance.

    Just watching Patrick Harvie of the Greens is enough to put me off indyref2 right away. The fact that the SNP have teamed up with the Greens speaks volumes about both Parties.

    The Greens are campaigning against pro-life groups https://greens.scot/BufferZones

    I’ll vote for Scottish independence once they withdraw their dictatorial tendencies, allow free speech and protests wherever people want to protest.

    So does that mean if there had been no Brexit, no Covid and no Boris Johnson there would be no desire for independence? What about her previous reasons for the last referendum? Oh, I forgot: boasting of Scottish oil reserves was the main topic.

    As for wee Harvie standing beside her on the podium…….you would really have to have a hard heart NOT to laugh at them.

    She was fly enough not to mention the SNP members of her glorified council partaking in the multi-million pound jollies over in Qatar recently where over 6,000 poor workers were killed building stadiums for November`s World Cup competition..

    Mark Steyn of GB News makes a brilliant point. Absolutely brilliant. “The Scots aren’t showing up” – when I saw the headline, I thought he must mean not showing up to vote. Wrong…

    The letters in The Scotsman newspaper are nearly all against indyref2. This one made me laugh:

    Nicola Sturgeon, in desperately seeking reasons to revisit the independence issue again, has listed a number of small European countries which are performing better than Scotland. However there is a very good reason for this – they do not have the SNP in charge. Barry Hughes, Edinburgh LOL!
