So, despite what she has said she is prepared to block indyref2.
The real reason is to thwart democracy by making sure EU citizens are excluded from the vote. The real reason is they know there is a good chance they will lose indyref2.
There are 183,000 EU nationals in Scotland. If #IndyRef2 is held after Brexit, it’s entirely possible they will be prevented from voting.

Whatever the reason Ruth Davidson has gone back on her words.
From what she said before, there is a mandate and the referendum shouldn’t be blocked. Her excuse for blocking it doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. She is taking the electorate for fools.
