If they don't I could see Sturgeon trying to hold one anyway, however the number of countries that would recognise the result and/or any subsequent attempt to declare independence could be counted on one hand.
With all of their banging on about respecting "the will of the people" they would be strawberry floating mental to refuse to let Scotland have one.
But as I said earlier, polling appears to be showing a majority in Scotland are against a referendum. It'd be very easy to spin that denying another referendum IS the will of the people.
Easy to spin it either way really. It'd be a brave Tory that tells Scotland that they can't have a referendum because of a 1000 person poll in the Guardian though.
They would also then be opening themselves up to having to run another EU referendum if polls suggested people wanted one and/or wanted to Remain in the EU.
Yeah but we're talking about Theresa May here remember?
