As well as reaching out to those Scots who oppose a second independence referendum she sent a defiant message to British Prime Minister Theresa May:“To stand in defiance of that would be for the prime minister to shatter beyond repair any notion of the UK as a respectful partnership of equals. If her concern is timing then within reason I am happy to have that discussion. But let the prime minister be in no doubt, the will of our parliament must and will prevail.”
