Sturgeon Draws Brexit Red Lines

Scotland is putting forward plans to remain in Europe’s single market after vowing to seek independence from the U.K. should its voice be ignored in Brexit talks.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Tuesday will detail her semi-autonomous government’s red lines on keeping access to free trade and labour as the U.K. heads into talks on withdrawing from the European Union next year. She reiterated at the weekend her stance on calling for a fresh vote on breaking away from England and Wales if Scotland’s demands aren’t met.

“Losing our place in the single market would be potentially devastating to our long-term prosperity, to jobs, investment and people’s livelihoods,” Sturgeon said in a statement before the publication of a Scottish government paper on the issue. “Our proposals deserve full and proper consideration.”
