No Second Referendum

Sturgeon and the Tartan Tories are again talking of having a second independence referendum, just as the Westminster British government moves to invoke Article 50. The SNP hope Scotland would be independent from the UK and remain in the EU; or an alternative raised at the end of last year is the differentiated Brexit. This idea means that Scotland remains in Britain, but stays within the single market or has a special relationship within European Free Trade Area. The Scottish government sees itself competent to negotiate these deals.

In a poll last month carried out in Scotland by Panelbase for the Sunday Times, 51% of those polled did not support a second referendum. In fact support for a second independence referendum has gone down from 43% in last June to 27% this January. As workers we must get ready to oppose both of the second referenda that that opponents of British working class democracy would foist on us.
