HOLDING another independence referendum will be ‘irresistible’ if the SNP wins the majority of Scottish seats at the General Election, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

Scotland’s first minister told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme she planned another vote next year.

She said: ‘On this question of will Westminster allow it or not… this is an opportunity for the people in Scotland to have their say.

‘If the SNP wins this election, I think that demand becomes irresistible.

‘This idea that for self-interest reasons Westminster politicians can stand in the way of people in Scotland choosing their own future, we already see that start to crumble.’
