Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today said that the First Minister's refusal to clearly rule out court action on an independence referendum shows she is increasingly desperate in her bid for independence.

When pressed on the issue during a trip to the United States the First Minister did not rule out legal action saying only that she did not see any need for the issue to end up in court.

Responding Mr Rennie said:

"By refusing to fully rule out court action the First Minister is tramping along a familiar nationalist path.

"Keeping the option of court action means we are stuck with the SNP's rat-a-tat-tat campaign for independence moving forward every day.

"The First Minister's refusal to clearly rule out court action on an independence referendum shows she is increasingly desperate in her bid for independence."
