Scotland needs choice on independence at end of Brexit: Sturgeon

"People in Scotland can see through Nicola Sturgeon's contortions on Europe, which is why a majority don't want another divisive referendum".

The Proctor, Professor Lorna Milne, Association President and Association President-elect, Charlotte Andrew and Lewis Wood, also attended, along with members of staff.

Labour claimed that the SNP's approach to the currency was "a shambles" while the Conservatives said Ms Sturgeon's remarks showed that she was "flimsy and insincere" on the most important of questions.

The Scottish First Minister acknowledged that she faced challenges in growing the nation's economy and improving standards in schools, in the wake of declining literacy figures.

Ms Sturgeon added: "When we come to an independence referendum - if we come to an independence referendum - these issues will be subject to the greatest scrutiny".

She then added, "So it underlines the point that over these next couple of years we really need to have people in their arguing Scotland's corner".

EFTA members participate in the EU's single market - one of Scotland's main goals.

Jackson Carlaw, the Scottish Conservative leader, said Sturgeon was playing political games with the electorate.

Ms Dugdale said that while the SNP "has done nothing to stop austerity", Labour's proposals would redistribute wealth across the UK. Now we have to set out if we're in an independence referendum, and we're not in that right now, the process for regaining or retaining, depending where we are in the Brexit process, European Union membership.

Where there is smoke there is not necessarily fire. "We told him we were concerned the American people had been misled". Clapper reiterated that he still hasn't seen evidence to suggest that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.

Scotland's First Minister said the country has "come a long way" and led the United Kingdom in "progressive policies" since the nationalists were elected a decade ago. "We have to set that out at the time because there are still some uncertainties, many uncertainties, around the Brexit process", she replied.

"This election is not about giving Theresa May a free hand, it's about strengthening Scotland's hand, strengthening Scotland's hand against an unchecked Tory government at Westminster, strengthening Scotland's hand in Brexit negotiations and strengthening our right to take our own decisions".

"Labour's manifesto gives voters a real choice: a fairer Scotland for the many, not the few; or a Scotland caught between the two extremes of Tory and SNP nationalism".

The politician said her party had been advocates for regionalising fishing policy and for taking a fresh look at the EU's "open to all" approach to fishing waters. The SNP know we are the challengers.

She said: "The starting point for Scotland is we'd use the pound until we chose to do something else". "There must be the ability with will on both sides to get an early certainty around these kind of things".

"Everywhere I go, the SNP follow".

"I think the people of Angus deserve some clarity". They like people talking after the match, not before the match.

"In Scotland, it is only the strong voice of SNP MPs at Westminster, combined with an effective SNP government, that has protected Scotland from the full force of the Tories at Westminster".
