Well, as I said, it's possible he's referring to a Catalan style event. But it seems unlikely, and certainly less likely than that he was engaging in a bit of braggadocio.

I think it's more likely he was referring to the practical reality of the situation.

Not sure what you mean.

The reality is, a PR Parliament at Holyrood voted to hold a referendum. If the Scottish government intend holding a referendum on independence before the next Holyrood election, after the brexit deal is clear, it beggars belief that Westminster would prevent it. The precedent has been set, and it seems incredibly unlikely it would be opposed.

Christ, we even had Tories earlier this year saying 'we arent saying never, just not now, the people need to know what thee outcome of brexit is'. Well, we will find out. And then we will have a referendum.
