#GE2017 Scottish Liberal Democrats to launch their manifesto today

"Brexit must not simply be imposed on Scotland no matter how damaging it turns out to be", the manifesto stated, adding that the 2016 Scottish election result that returned the SNP to power in an alliance with the Green Party "delivered the democratic mandate for an independence referendum in these circumstances".

The first minister said that she wanted to speak to pensioners directly yesterday, warning them that the Conservatives were pitting the young against the old and were "taking the votes of many older people for granted".

Away from the SNP manifesto launch, The Times reports that the Conservative Party could be in line to lose 20 seats and Labour gain almost 30 in next week's general election, as the paper quotes data from pollsters YouGov.

She seized on the problems that Theresa May has had over the past two weeks...

Scottish Labour also have some encouragement in this poll, which puts them on 25 per cent, up from the 24.3 per cent of the vote they secured on what was an abysmal night in 2015 and the 22.6 per cent they secured in the constituency section of last year's election to Holyrood.

"I watched every single Conservative seat in Scotland fall, so I've waited a really long time for a comeback", she said.

In their manifesto, the Conservatives have already said that there will be not be another vote until the Brexit process has "played out" and there is "public consent for it".

Mr Corbyn was also asked on Monday about how he would deal with Ms Sturgeon if he became prime minister.

The party would ensure that Scotland's voice was heard, Sturgeon said, and it would push for Scotland to stay in the single market even as Britain left it.

The pound was hit in early trading on suggestions the United Kingdom election could result in a hung parliament . It is not investment advice or a solution to buy or sell securities.

"Our vision challenges the notion of Scottish independence because we say that if we all stand together things can, and they will change", said Corbyn. With Labour also opposing another plebiscite, the SNP says it's the last real bulwark of resistance to the prime minister.

Conservative chairman Patrick McLoughlin said: 'This manifesto makes clear the price we'd pay for that - higher taxes, more borrowing, weaker defences.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Ms Sturgeon emphasised the likelihood of a Tory victory, despite a narrowing of the polls with Labour.

"If the SNP really thought that this was a sensible idea and were not just playing politics then they would have introduced it in Scotland where they have the power to do so".

"A vote for Labour on June 8 will send Nicola Sturgeon a message to drop her plans for a divisive second independence referendum and get back to the job of fixing the mess she has made of our schools and hospitals".

However, they have also rejected independence from the United Kingdom in a 2015 referendum.

"We can not find ourselves in a position where we have no alternative but to accept a damaging Brexit that is wreaking havoc on our economy and our public services. We're fighting this election to win".

"This was a exhausted manifesto launch by a First Minister who has failed in this campaign to give people a single, positive reason for voting for her party".
