SNP conference: FM must take independence off the table

Commenting in response to the First Ministers opening speech to the SNP conference this morning, Scottish Liberal Democrat MP, Alistair Carmichael said:

“The SNP have now made it crystal clear that a second independence referendum is their top priority. Their delegates went wild with a standing ovation at the first whiff of a referendum on independence in Nicola Sturgeon’s speech.

“The Scottish Government are now rushing forward with the publication of a Bill when they should be tackling the huge challenges in health, in education and policing.

“The First Minister must take independence off the table.”
