    Local views mixed over second indyref

    Originally published by and copyright of www.shetnews.co.uk

    EU Leave campaigner Brian Nugent.POLITICANS locally are divided on the question of whether the EU poll result has provided a mandate for a second Scottish independence referendum. Amid unprecedented upheaval following the UK’s 52-48 vote to sever its ties with Brussels, local Leave campaigner Brian Nugent said he was “not convinced” there is a mandate for another indyref, while Shetland MSP Tavish Scott cautioned against having “endless debates” over independence.

    First minister Nicola Sturgeon says she will start setting out the legislative programme for a second Scottish independence referendum.PRIME minister David Cameron has announced he is stepping down in October after losing Thursday's historic EU referendum, while first minister Nicola Sturgeon has said that a second independence referendum is now "highly likely".
