Scottish independence: Labour will 'passionately' oppose indyref2, says Sir Keir Starmer | Scotsman |

While First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already said she wants to hold another vote on the future of the UK "early" in the next Holyrood term, Sir Keir insisted that no responsible Prime Minister would give the go-ahead for such a ballot.

With ongoing uncertainty about the impact of the coronavirus crisis and Brexit, he said holding a second Scottish referendum would be "entirely the wrong priority", dismissing Ms Sturgeon's calls for another ballot as "misguided".

Not only has Keir Starmer lost the opportunity to ensure that the Tories own Brexit, and particularly the form it will ultimately take, but now he is ensuring that the Scots nationalists will have a clear run at owning all Scottish independence/devolution sentiment and generalised resentment at the Tories.

Precisely what is the point of voting for Labour under Keir Starmer? He is acting as Boris lite.
