The SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon, has told her party’s conference that a bill for a new referendum is due to be published.
The previous referendum ended in defeat for the SNP with 55 per cent of voters opting to remain part of Britain. However, a wave of nationalism spread through the country after the vote, virtually wiping out Labour north of the border in the last general election.
She said: “So, I can confirm today that the Independence Referendum Bill will be published for consultation next week.” The crowd gave her a standing ovation after she made the comment.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
