I don't think she's ruling it out, she seems to be saying "Not right now"But Mrs May said it would be "unfair" to hold a vote until the UK's future relationship with the EU became clear.
It's a valid point really. It'd be better to hold a referendum when the facts are known.
She's ruling it out on the timescale that the Scottish government wanted. Better?
I'm not so sure she is making a valid point, it's more likely she is desperate to avoid this scenario:
Sturgeon would have to do the same though, just the other way round
