THERESA MAY’S decision to call a snap election will not only tighten her grip on power in No 10 but demolish once and for all Nicola Sturgeon’s ceaseless calls for a second Scottish independence referendum.

Just minutes after the Prime Minster announced her bid for a June 8 General Election it emerged that the move was a clear bid to take on the SNP and snuff out the distracting demands for the so-called IndyRef2.

It is understood that Ruth Davidson, the Scottish Conservative Leader, personally helped persuade the Prime Minister that she could cause real damage to Miss Sturgeon north of the border by calling a snap poll and making it a “referendum on another referendum”.

If the SNP loses seats in Westminster it would seriously undermine Miss Sturgeon’s claim on power in Scotland, where her party has no overall majority.

Even deputy leader of the Scottish National Party Angus Robertson immediately saw the forthcoming election as a straight battle between the SNP and the Tories north of the border.

He tweeted: “Whatever happened to ‘now is not the time’? UK General Election: 8th June. Straight choice in Scotland between @theSNP and Tories. #VoteSNP”.

And a clearly rattled Nicola Sturgeon said Scotland “needed to be protected from the Tory Party”.
