Could the UK’s forthcoming departure from the European Union have anything to do with this, after the SNP’s appeal to the EU for special treatment was turned down?

Former first minister Alex Salmond has suggested a second referendum on Scottish independence could be held in two years time.

In a column in the National newspaper, he said he has “little doubt” the “next test is coming”.

He said that his “guess” on timing is that “it is likely to be the autumn of 2018”.

Opposition parties pointed out that the SNP previously said the independence referendum was “once in a generation”.
