A new poll has revealed that Scottish voters have rejected Nicola Sturgeon’s attempts to torpedo Brexit with another independence referendum.
It comes as Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson defended Theresa May’s decision to block a referendum until after Brexit.
Ms Davidson said: “The SNP is not Scotland and they are acting against the majority wishes of the people of Scotland.
“There are people right across Scotland, many, many thousands of them, that are so thankful for the Prime Minister to say let’s take a pause on this.”
Ms Sturgeon said that membership of the single market was the “minimum” that must be secured for Scotland.
