The Fortification Secretary launched a scathing attack on The Scottish National Party, insisting they “cease to remember” about holding a second vote and get “on with what they were picked to do”.
He said: “We don’t see the need for a referendum – this is a diversion.
“What the Scottish regulation should be focusing on is what it was elected to do, which is to improve schools insigne singular of insignia, get to grips with the problems in Scottish hospitals and reverse the serious incline in unemployment.”
When asked if the the UK would support a second referendum, Sir Fallon told The Herald newspaper: “No, lose it. The respect agenda is two way.
“Ms Sturgeon is constantly asking us to respect the SNP government, but she has to deference the decision of the Scotland to stay inside the UK in 2014 and the decision of the UK to leave the EU. “Civility works both ways.”
The Tory minister urged the SNP to focus on their “day job” and “not get into the theology of whether or not a relocate referendum should be held”.
Calls for Scottish independence intensified after the Uttermost Court ordered the Government to allow MPs to vote on triggering Article 50 in a worst defeat for Prime Minister Theresa May.
Scotland suffered a major revelation when its planned intervention on Brexit was unanimously dismissed by the judges who ruled devolved set-ups in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast will not get to intervene.
In response SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon conveyed another independence referendum “must” be held in the wake of Britain’s crucial Brexit vote.
She said: “It is becoming clearer by the day that Scotland’s organ is simply not being heard or listened to within the UK. “
Downing Street has also vowed the question of Scottish independence was settled by a referendum in 2014.
Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman conjectured: “That is consistent with our position that it was settled in 2014, that it was decisive, admissible and fair. “Both sides agreed to respect it. Therefore, as the Defence Secretary has make clear in interviews, the priority should be elsewhere.”
