Earlier today, the SKWAWKBOX reported on the Scottish National Party’s (SNP) 24-hour-plus failure to deny reports that Theresa May offered SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon a deal when the two met on Monday: abstentions by SNP MPs in the vote on the UK’s final Brexit deal with the EU, in return for ‘IndyRef2’ – a second referendum on Scottish independence.
The SNP has finally issued a denial – of sorts – and bizarrely pointed the finger of blame at former Labour MP George Galloway:
This is utterly rubbish which is no surprise from George Galloway. The SNP has a mandate to call another referendum and it is democratically unsustainable for the Tories to stand in the way.
However, the statement is worded ambiguously enough to not quite directly deny that the Tories had put another referendum on the table.
George Galloway responded dismissively to the almost-denial, telling the SKWAWKBOX:
The entire SNP group of 11 MPs marched into the lobby behind Margaret Thatcher in 1979 to usher in a dark decade for Scotland, Britain and beyond. Nobody would be in the least surprised if they did the same again by backing Theresa May.
