  3. Scottish Conservative MSP - SNP should respect both referendums

    Scottish Conservative MSP Jamie Greene said elections are about big constitutional issues, but also about everyday matters .

    He told the BBC's Emily Maitlis: "Brexit came up, Independence came up, tactical voting came up. People were voting for very different reasons in Scotland to many other parts of the UK.

    "I feel a bit of ground hog day - we are having this conversation after every election. The SNP say it is another mandate for independence - they have been saying that since 2014. Everything that happens in politics they keep saying that is another mandate.

    Quote Message: The vote share they got yesterday was 45% in Scotland, and guess what - that is the same vote result of the 2014 referendum where the people of Scotland said no thanks to independence. We said it would be a once -in-a-lifetime vote, we all signed up to that. And I am asking the SNP to honour that commitment, respect democracy, respect the result of those referendums and let's move on as a country." from Jamie Greene Scottish Conservative MSP

  4. Analysis: 'We are headed for a constitutional tussle'

    Professor Sir John Curtice

    Polling expert

    We are now going to be heading to a constitutional tussle between the United Kingdom government, led by the Conservatives, and the Scottish government, led by the SNP. The request will be made by Nicola Sturgeon next week and she might even get a reply back, perhaps with the grace of a Christmas card, from the PM fairly promptly that the answer is "No".

    The crucial question will then be - where do we go from here?

    I think the first thing to watch is going to be what happens to the opinion polls north of the border about attitudes towards independence.

    We have already seen in the course of this year most polls showing an increase in support for independence, such that it is around the 48/49 percent mark. Most of that increase in support has occurred among those who voted Remain.

    So there is already evidence that dissatisfaction with the pursuit of Brexit has weakened to some degree the already relatively tenuous ties in public attitudes in Scotland towards the Union. But the question now will be is when Scotland leaves the EU with the rest of the UK at the end of January what happens to public attitudes - and that will be important to both sides.

  5. SNP's deputy leader - are the Tories going to ignore Scotland?

    The SNP's deputy leader Keith Brown told BBC presenter Emily Maitlis that no-doubt Boris Johnson had the majority he needed to proceed with Brexit, but he added that the PM had said things before and not followed them through. He added: "We will wait and see, but he does seem to have the majority he requires to take as he has the right to do [in England].

    Mr Brown said the SNP government would next week lodge a request to have the power given to it from Westminster to hold another independence referendum.

    Quote Message: We we will now do is what we said we would do before the election and put that request [section 30] to Boris Johnson. The question is for the Tories, what are they going to do? Are they going to continue to ignore the democratic will of the people of Scotland - that's their question to answer." from Keith Brown Deputy leader of the SNP

  6. Labour MSP: 'Corbyn would have made an excellent PM'

    Claudia Beamish

    Labour MSP Claudia Beamish told Newsdrive that she did not want to talk about "fault and blame tonight".

    She added: "As a party we are going to reflect - I have a great deal of respect for Jeremy Corbyn. He is a principled man who would have made an excellent prime minister."

    However, Ms Beamish said "that is not where we are".

    Standing down as Liberal Democrats' leader, Jo Swinson suggests her successor should be a woman.

    Speaking in central London, the former MP says "smashing the glass ceiling" by becoming the party's first female leader had meant "a lot of broken glass comes down on your head".

    She cites the experiences of current Lib Dem women, including Layla Moran, Christine Jardine, Wera Hobhouse and Sarah Olney.

    Meanwhile, there have also been calls for the next Labour leader to be a woman.

    Quote Message: If you stand on a manifesto as we did in 2016 which specifically says the circumstances in which another referendum would be justified, mentions being taken out of the EU against our will and then that happens, you have the mandate. So we have the mandate from the 2016 election, we had the vote in the Scottish Parliament, we won the election in 2017, we've just won the election again. How many times does Scotland have to make its views known on the issue before it's listened to? from Keith Brown SNP Depute Leader

  14. Scottish Conservative leader: 'We are not going to support a request for a second independence referendum'

    Jackson Carlaw

    Interim Scottish Conservatives leader Jackson Carlaw has hit out at Nicola Sturgeon for “assuming” all of the SNP’s votes were a “vote for independence”.

    He said: “We are not going to support a request for a second independence referendum and I don’t believe the prime minister will either.

    “We are going to stand by the people who voted for us last night and the two million people who voted no in 2014.”
