prioritising immigration over access to the single market. i think now from the triggering of article 50 and the most important negotiations for a generation, we need more clarity. but nicola sturgeon want any move to take scotland out of the single market could trigger a second referendum on independence. they will be making a big mistake if they think i am nothing. we have to ask ourselves if we are happy with the kind of country we want to be determined by a right—wing power. theresa may does not want her time in downing street to be defined by brexit and she stressed that referendum vote was a demand for wider change to the way the country is run, so she is promising a programme of social reform which she says will help notjust the poorest but every level of society. it is
