Nicola Sturgeon accuses Labour of copying SNP's polices

She added: "So I'll challenge her (May) today, change your mind, come and join us on Thursday - I'd say the same to Jeremy Corbyn - and let's have a proper debate".

The First Minister also defended her decision to pursue a second independence referendum earlier this and said students concerned about independence should still vote for the SNP.

The First Minister's proposals to keep Scotland in the single market after Brexit were rejected out of hand by the UK Government in December but Ms Sturgeon believes victory at the polls will give a mandate to her plans.

"It may be that we have a phased approach to that by necessity" - SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon on an independent Scotland's approach to becoming a full European Union (EU) member.

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said people were "getting exhausted of the SNP and all their promises".

With the General Election approaching, Ms Sturgeon warned the United Kingdom is facing "the prospect of another Tory government, imposing more cuts, attacking the vulnerable, putting pensions at risk and imposing an extreme Brexit deal that will put jobs at risk".

"My proposition is just that when we get to the end of the Brexit process, and when we know what the terms of Brexit are, Scotland should have a choice, and that is my simple argument", she said.

"My message on this election on Brexit is whether you voted leave or remain, whether you were yes or no in 2014, if you vote SNP you are strengthening my hand to make sure that Scotland's voice is heard in these negotiations and that we don't sacrifice jobs and our economy".
