Sturgeon is very disappointed by the Supreme Court referendum ruling

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the next UK general election will be a “de facto referendum” on Scottish independence, following a November 23 High Court ruling that a vote could not take place without Westminster’s approval. Speaking at a news conference in Edinburgh, the SNP leader said she was “very disappointed” with the decision. She said, “We must and will find another democratic, legal and constitutional means by which the Scottish people can express their will.” Sturgeon said that achieving independence is “not only desirable, it is necessary”. The SNP will hold a special conference in the new year, according to Sturgeon, “to discuss and agree on the details of the proposed actual referendum”.
