London, March 3: British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned the pro-independence Scottish government that “politics is not a game”. May, during her address at the Scottish Conservative Party conference in Glasgow on Friday, accused Nicola Sturgeon’s Scottish tiol Party (SNP) government of being “obsessed” with pushing for the independence of the country. She said Sturgeon was neglecting the region’s primary needs in favour of the tion’s secession, reported Efe news. May said tiolists play “politics as if it is a game”, at a time when she was committed to maintaining the unity of Britain ahead of its exit from the European Union. She said her first visit outside of England after she took office in July last year was to Scotland, because the UK’s unity was a priority for her. May said that the British government could negotiate a deal with Brussels that benefited the whole country, including Scotland, whose electorate widely voted for Britain to remain in the EU in last June’s referendum. May said there was no appetite for a second Scottish independence referendum and that the case was dismissed in September 2014, when 55 per cent of Scots voted to stay in Britain. (IANS)
