Sturgeon threatens to resurrect plans for another Scottish referendum

Nicola Sturgeon, the woman expected to replace Alex Salmond as leader of the Scottish National Party and Scotland’s First Minister, said she could start resurrecting plans for a fresh referendum on Scottish independence as soon as 2016.

Speaking today, Ms Sturgeon said that a “clear and unmistakable pledge” had been made that the package for Scotland would be “something near to federalism”, and failure to implement them would result in a “heavy political price”.

Peter A Bell's insight:

Why is this described as a “threat”? It is no more than a recognition of the political reality. Sturgeon is perfectly correct when she says that the people of Scotland will demand another referendum when the British establishment reneges on its promises. Why would anybody expect otherwise?
