I was simply speculating on what may be an outcome, that has relevance to this debate. I think the SNP want an indyref sooner rather than later, because if Brexit ends up having a neutral or positive* impact then support for independence will fall. I think they'd rather have the referendum now, while things are uncertain, because it preys on peoples' uncertainty and anxiety. Timing is everything - they were only desperate for an election in December, because Salmond is about to go on trial for some very serious sexual offences. * I consider a positive outcome to Brexit to be highly unlikely, but hey, it might happen.
