UK Prime minister says SNP are neglecting schools because of "tunnel vision" on the issue. May will attack Surgeon at her conference speech But Mrs May said: "I am confident about the future of our United Kingdom and optimistic about what we can achieve together as a country".
Mrs May has told BBC Scotland that the SNP is guilty of "tunnel vision" on independence ahead of her speech at the Scottish Conservative party conference today (March 3).
May also said that no decisions now taken by the Scottish parliament will be removed from it when Britain leaves the EU.
She said as Britain leaves the European Union the opportunity must be taken to bring Britain closer together. "After Brexit, its potential for growth in exports across the world is huge", she said of the £5 billion whisky industry.
In a freaky section celebrating "the world's greatest family of nations" she lauded the British Union's achievements.
"Politics is about how we as politicians deliver for people in their day to day lives".
"Politics is not a game and government is not a platform from which to pursue constitutional obsessions", she said.
I think it is worth beginning by saying that I too voted remain.
Sturgeon has insisted that a second referendum was an option in the light of the change of circumstances.
"As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions now taken by the Scottish parliament will be removed from them", May said.
Theresa May has warned that she will resist the devolution of further powers to Scotland after Brexit, suggesting that Westminster should take control of policies such as agriculture and fisheries, which are now decided in Brussels and administered from Holyrood.
The first minister also claimed the Tories had no intention of handing new powers to Holyrood and accused them of trying to "muscle-in" on those it already has.
"The Scottish government's approach since the European Union referendum has been to offer compromise and to seek consensus at every turn -- in return the United Kingdom government's has so far been one of obstinacy and intransigence", Sturgeon said in an emailed statement Thursday.
"But as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I am just as concerned that young people in Dundee get a good start in life and receive the education they need to reach their full potential as I am about young people in Doncaster and Dartford". "On the question of a second indyref, the question is not whether there could be a ref but whether there should be a referendum".
But we all know that the SNP will never stop twisting the truth and distorting reality in their effort to denigrate our United Kingdom and further their obsession of independence.
