The Scottish First Minister should begin putting national interests ahead of her party’s nationalist interests

The Scottish First Minister should begin putting national interests ahead of her party’s nationalist interests, the leader of the Welsh Conservatives has said.

Andrew RT Davies was responding to a statement made today by the SNP leader where she said she will seek permission from Westminster to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence.

Andrew said:

“Despite her assertions that she is speaking in the interests of the Scottish public, Nicola Sturgeon is in reality speaking in the interests of the SNP.

“Like their fellow nationalists Plaid Cymru, The SNP only want one thing: independence. Everything they say or do is to that end – this despite the majority of people saying time and time again that they do not want a return to the brutal divisions of a referendum.

“It’s time that the SNP put the national interest ahead of their own nationalist interest, and started delivering for the Scottish people.”
