Nicola Sturgeon will update MSPs on a possible second independence referendum.

Her spokesman has promised a “detailed and substantive statement setting out a path forward for Scotland amid the ongoing Brexit confusion at Westminster”.

The First Minister is due to speak at around 1.30pm, with MSPs getting an hour between 2pm and 3pm to ask questions.

Regardless of what the First Minister says you can also expect some big news from The National as we launch our new campaign on independence. More details to follow.

Since January 2018 they have been working on “the best way to promote the independence message and have forged ahead with the creation of a dedicated campaign organisation.”

It’s the start of the SNP’s party conference. Thousands of members will head to the capital’s conference centre for the two day shindig .

Day one will be dominated by the currency debate, and leadership could face a significant rebellion.

Last week, writing in this paper, Sturgeon called for a “careful, managed and responsible transition to an independent currency”.

The National:

But there are a growing number of members who think the First Minister is being too cautious here.

She asked them to wait just a little bit longer.

“As we wait – impatiently, at times, I know – for this phase of negotiations to conclude and for the fog of Brexit to clear, be in no doubt about this.

“The last two years have shown why Scotland needs to be independent, and I am more confident than ever that Scotland will be independent.”

Will she ask her supporters to wait longer still or will she have something to tell them?
