Remind you of anything? Theresa May just said something very silly about Scottish independence

This is just perfect


Prime Minister Theresa May has said a second referendum on Scottish independence would ‘make it more difficult’ to secure a good post-Brexit settlement with the EU, adding: ‘Now is not the time.’

In a televised interview, the PM added:

“I think it wouldn’t be fair to the people of Scotland because they’d be being asked to make a crucial decision without the necessary information – without knowing what the future partnership would be or what the alternative of an independent Scotland would look like.”

Hmm… remind you of anything?
