SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon is set to unveil a renewed push for a second referendum on Scottish Independence amid a refusal by Westminister to grant a vote. Sky News presenter Kay Burley has grilled SNP MSP Fiona Hyslop on the detail of the Scottish First Minister’s plans and the legality of the SNP’s roadmap to Indyref2.
Ms Burley asked the SNP MSP: “How could it be lawfully held if you need to get permission from the British Parliament under Section 30?
“Well, why don’t you tune in and hear the First Minister’s statement?” replied Ms Hyslop.
She continued: “I’m not a member of the government and I’m looking forward to hearing the steps that she will set out and that’s precisely what she’s going to do in what will be a highly significant statement on the future of Scotland and the choice for the people of Scotland with independence.”
Ms Burley questioned: “So she would break the law?”
