Theresa May to reject second Scottish referendum

The Times is reporting that British Prime Minister Theresa May will reject First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s demand for a second independence referendum.

A government source is reported as citing the timing of the demand as the reason for the rejection, saying:

“The prime minister has said this would mean a vote while she was negotiating Brexit and I think that can be taken pretty clearly as a message that this timing is completely unacceptable… It would be irresponsible to agree to it and we won’t.”
