Nicola Sturgeon unveils economic case for Scottish independence in new paper

NICOLA Sturgeon has published a new document laying out her plans for an independent Scotland.

At Bute House on Monday, the First Minister presented the third independence paper, outlining the economic and currency plans for an independent Scotland.

Ahead of the speech, Sturgeon said the country had an “abundance of skilled people, innovative businesses, and natural resources”, but warned: “Scotland’s economy is one of the best performing in the UK – however, the UK economy, particularly post-Brexit, is now lagging behind many EU and international comparators.

“The UK economic model is demonstrably failing and increasingly holding Scotland back. Independence is now essential to build an economy that works for everyone.”
