Nicola Sturgeon discusses Scottish referendum 'campaign'
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon defended her intentions to focus on independence as Scotland deals with the coronavirus crisis. While speaking to Channel 4 she argued that countries around the world are thinking post-pandemic and insisted Scotland should do so as well. In this preparation for the future, she claimed this would most definitely include a recovery of the country and push towards independence.
Ms Sturgeon said: “As we start to recover from this, all societies and all countries are asking themselves, what do we want to recover to, what changes do we want?
“It is an opportunity to tackle some of the deep-seated issues and problems like inequality and poverty.
“And for Scotland, that involves the consideration of who holds the levers?
“Where do the powers lie? And that, of course, brings to the fore the question of independence.”
