The Scottish Secretary has said Boris Johnson will give “careful consideration” to Nicola Sturgeon’s request to be handed the powers to hold a second independence referendum.
Replying to 
+ScotNational The phrase "once in a generation" actually said "once in a generation opportunity". We know, they know it. It's a tiring flawed argument. A complete downright lie.
Replying to 
@Murchie I wish the National would stop saying it's a 'request'.
Replying to 
@ToniY1953 Yep. Language is important. We should be clear a referendum is happening either way, but we'd prefer it if the UK agreed with us the result would be respected and not legally challenged. That's all Section 30 transfer of powers is for. To ensure there is no legal challenge in court to stop independence if its a Yes majority.
