Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon said on Thursday that she immediately rejected the prime ministers new Brexit deal.

The SNP leader has demanded a second Scottish independence referendum so that Scotland can have their say on a future relationship with the EU.

Sturgeon said on Twitter, “Seems to me that no-one who voted against May’s deal on basis it lacked strong enough assurances about closeness of future relationship could possibly vote for this – much harder Brexit beckons if this deal passes.

“For Scotland, this deal would take us out of EU, single market and customs union – all against our will.

“It would leave us as only part of UK being taken out without consent and with no say on future relationship. @theSNP will not vote for that.

“MPs should not fall for a deal/no deal framing. No Brexit/revoke is always an alternative to no deal.

“Brexit has shown that the only way for Scotland to be in charge of our own future is to become independent – that why we must have #indyref2 next year.”
