STURGEON CLAIMS SNP GENERAL ELECTION SUCCESS WOULD CONFIRM CASE FOR INDYREF2

Campaigning begins in earnest ahead of the December General Election

Nicola Sturgeon has claimed a Scottish majority for the SNP after the general election will show an "unequivocal and irresistible demand" for a second independence referendum.

The party's leader and Scottish First Minister will be in Stirling on Wednesday to join the city's candidate, Alyn Smith, on the campaign trail.

She is expected to vow to "take the fight to the Tories" to keep Scotland in the EU and decide whether to remain part of the UK.

Ms Sturgeon said: "The SNP is ready for an election. We stand ready to take the fight to the Tories, to bring down this undemocratic government, and give Scotland the chance to escape from Brexit and decide our own future.

"Scotland has been ignored and treated with contempt by Westminster, and this election is an opportunity to bring that to an end.

"A win for the SNP will be an unequivocal and irresistible demand for Scotland's right to choose our own future."
