SNP set timetable for COMPLETE independence for Scotland

The SNP would seek a swift referendum on independence upon winning a Westminster or Holyrood election, complete and total secession from the Union of 1707!

John Swinney, SNP spokesman said the move to independence could only come through a referendum "conducted by the Scottish Parliament . . . triggered either by an SNP administration in the Scottish Parliament or the election of a majority of SNP MPs at a Westminster election".
