    Because the Scottish people need to decide. The SNP are not all the Scottish people. They can’t keep having referendums till they get the result they want.

    The fact that Scotland can only hold another referendum about going indepedent

    if ''England'' says they can is the reason why they need to be independant.

    Well,Scotland fell for Tory lies, lies that influenced the out come of the last Scottish independence referendum.

    So the outcome stay, in the union: like the outcome of the brexit referendum, was based on unprecedented Tory and English nationalistic lies. The Tories, in their own interest deliberately lied to the Scottish people. Cameron knew full-well, that prior to the Scottish vote on independence the Tories were going to table a motion to leave the EU.And they have been lying to the Scots ever-since.

    According to the UN charter: Every nations has the right to self-determination. And that includes Scotland.The Treaty of the Union has had its day, it's a treaty between monarchs and not a treaty between nations,so independence or the renegotiation of the Treaty,is way over due.

    The Scots don't have to declare UDI, the Scots are way to smart for that.

    But, they can pass a law in the Scottish parlaiment to introduce an exchequer independent of the UK union. In that way, all income made in the sovereign country Scotland will be pay into the Scottish exchequer, also all oil incomes. That will really screw Westminster. The Tories are quite aware of the fact that Scotland gives more that it takes.In fact the UK biggest produced export item,is Scots whisky.

    Nicola Sturgeon is a loyal Scot who wants the best for the Scottish people, it's a pity the same quality can't be found in English politicians.Nicola Sturgeon is holding the English to account for their lies and they absolutely don't like it.

    And brexiters are looking for another crusade by which to spite the country even more than they have done already and Scotland is their next target.

    It's mind blowing the twaddle that Anonymous writes.

    It can’t, it would be bankrupt in days and it’s desperate dream to join the EU would be even more of a pipe dream.

    The referendum, once in a generation they said, until they lost. Now what? Best of three?

    Laws are like that.  There are also a lot of purse strings involved.

    The people of Scotland voted to remain in the UK on the clear understanding the UK would remain in the EU and voted to remain in the EU in 2016. They deserve to be given the opportunity to vote again on independence now the UK has left the EU.

    They can go independent, but they won't last 5 minutes without money from the English tax payers. Personally I think the whole of the UK should have a vote on it.

    Same reason Catalonia can't decide unilaterally to quit Spain. 

    (Delightful though the prospect of Nicola Sturgeon's head on a spike would be)

    Currently there is no mandate for them to leave. 

    As for them joining the EU and having the Euro, that won't happen.

    Scotland would be a Scandinavian paradise without England but they're like a Xenomorph thats latched onto our face sucking at our teets, the country has been infiltrated by their scanners and their paedophile media is everywhere, only those who possess the power of thought can avoid it 

    .

    However with the advent of brexit and the dumbest Prime Minister in the history of these islands, we may be able to escape this hell once and for all. Keep the faith brother 🤘

    That would not be democratic. Scotland is an integral part of the UK. They also voted to remain so in the last referendum. Just because the poisoned dwarf Sturgeon wants independence doesn't mean the referendum result can be challenged.
