Sturgeon meltdown as unionists ‘increasingly confident’ of Indyref2 court victory
The Daily Express says Nicola Sturgeon has called for a fresh vote on Scottish independence by the end of 2023 when the coronavirus pandemic is over, but the UK Government remains opposed to a second referendum. And senior unionists are reported “increasingly confident” they would win any legal battle if it ends up in the courts.
The Times pointed to legal advice taken by Whitehall before the first referendum in 2014.
It is still believed that because powers over the constitution are reserved to Westminster, any move to hold a referendum authorised only by Holyrood would be unlawful.
