SNP’s Aberdeen conference opens amid turmoil in Westminster

Scotland Correspondent

The Scottish National Party conference opens in Aberdeen today with the SNP looking to capitalise on recent Conservative Party turmoil – but also turning its attention to Labour, who are rising in the polls albeit still trailing the SNP in Scotland.

Delegates heard that Labour and the Tories would block a second independence referendum – an argument that moves to the Supreme Court next week as the Scottish Government seeks to hold a vote without Westminster’s consent.

On the conference stage both the Tories and Labour came under repeated attack.
