PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Alex Salmond has said negotiations for independence should start on the first day of the new parliamentary term if there is a supermajority for independence. The former first minister has previously said his Alba Party will not necessarily advocate for a referendum, but wants to see negotiations between the Scottish and UK governments to determine what would be needed for Scotland to separate. In an interview with Bauer Media, Salmond said he hoped the new Parliament would instruct those negotiations to begin on the first day it returned following the election. Ahead of the policy launch of the party’s campaign on Tuesday, he said: “We think on day one of the new Scottish Parliament elected on an independence platform, the Government should go to the parliament for an instruction and that instruction should be that they should begin negotiations with the Westminster Government and they should do it as a parliament with a majority support for independence.

However, the party has said any referendum, which could be challenged in the courts by Westminster, would only take place after the pandemic is over.

Salmond added: “I’ve got no idea why people think it’s a great idea to set some time in the future, as if that’s going to change the calculation with Westminster. “What’ll change Westminster’s mind about engaging in negotiations is the strength of the vote in Scotland and the knowledge that they’re not taking on a single political party in the SNP but an entire parliament representing an entire country.” Salmond went on to say that those negotiations should “see what the Westminster response is”, adding that the more independence supporting MSPs elected, “the weaker the resistance at Westminster will be to the independence cause”.
