Sturgeon news: Lord Frost warns SNP leading UK to ‘massive national humiliation’ | Politics | New

The SNP Leader made it clear that his party would push for another independence referendum in the near future. Downing Street refused to endorse another poll and said Holyrood had no legal power to request one without Westminster’s consent. However, Scottish nationalists have asked the UK Supreme Court to rule on whether Scotland can hold a new ballot without a green light from the UK government.

The case is due to be heard between October 11 and 12 and could decide the future of the Secular Union.

Lord Frost urged the British not to accept Scottish independence as a foregone conclusion and to thwart the separatist ambitions of the SNP.

In an opinion piece for the Daily Telegraph, he wrote: “I urge people in England not to give in to the ‘let them go’ argument.

“Partly because the breakup of the country would be a massive national humiliation.

“In Europe and beyond, it would be seen as a reward that they would exploit to the fullest.”

The former Brexit minister argued it would be morally wrong to leave pro-Union Scots to their fate.

He explained: “The supporters of the Union in Scotland, the people who have built their lives and their families on the assumption of its permanence, must not be abandoned.

“The UK is everyone’s country and we must protect and support it.”

Ms Sturgeon said that if the Supreme Court rules against the SNP it will use the upcoming general election as a “de facto referendum”.

Liz Truss has caused a furious outcry from Scottish nationalists after remarks she made recently at an election campaign event.

Currently the favorite to succeed Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary told an audience of Tory members in Cardiff that the SNP leader was an ‘attention seeker’ and vowed to ignore him.

Jack Gray said: “He is someone who has no respect for Scottish and Welsh democracy or their people, because what Lord Frost has said is insulting and extremely offensive, and should not go unchallenged.

“I fully support a general election and I fully support the Scottish Parliament.”

Ian McNeill fumed: “Frost has no credibility, but he still expresses what many Tories actually believe – that Scotland is just another part of England.

“Scotland is neither a region nor a colony but a nation claiming the right to determine its own future.”
