    Sturgeon 'abandons plans to stay in the EU': First Minister 'will scrap policy if she wins referendum' as two polls reveal most Scots want to stay in the UK

    Nicola Sturgeon has demanded a second referendum on Scottish independence
    But already suffered setbacks with polls showing strong majority still back union
    First Minister said to be ready to accept Scotland would not stay fully within EU
    Two thirds of Scots want the bloc to have reduced powers or for the UK to leave

    Nicola Sturgeon is preparing to drop her insistence that an independent Scotland must stay in the EU after two polls showing she faces losing the referendum.
    The First Minister could respond to signs she is out of step with public opinion by calling for a looser Norway-style link, which would see the country pay into Brussels coffers in return for access to the single market. (...)

    1. The independence referendum will fail (again).

    2. She will resign and be replaced by somebody even worse.

    Scotland- you are not a country, you are a constituent nation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This has been the case for more than 300 years. You will never be a country- please stop.
