PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The SNP has set aside £600,000 to prepare this year for another independence referendum. The cash was confirmed by the party’s ruling National Executive Committee for the SNP’s 2021 budget. Party strategists hailed the “fantastic news” as Scots prepare for an election in May. But the Tory opposition leader warned the focus is a damaging distraction during the pandemic and financial crisis. There is no date for a second referendum and Prime Minister Boris Johnson opposes all calls for another vote. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has suggested one in the next parliamentary session, assuming an SNP victory in May. Others want one as soon as possible after the pandemic.

Instead Nicola Sturgeon and other senior SNP figures repeatedly refuse to rule out holding an illegal referendum in 2021."
