The threat of a new Scottish independence referendum is creating unnecessary uncertainty and division, a British government spokesman said on Monday, reiterating Prime Minister Theresa May’s view that there was no need for another vote on the issue.
The comments came in response to media reports that Scottish nationalists were preparing to demand a fresh vote, possibly as early as next month to coincide with May’s plan to formally trigger Britain’s exit from the European Union.
“The question is not whether there could be a second referendum, it is whether there should be one – and the clear answer to that is no,” the spokesman said.
