ON Wednesday the Supreme Court will hand down a decision which will lay the path of Scotland’s future.

If the judges in the UK’s highest court rule that Holyrood has the power to hold a second vote on independence without Westminster consent, indyref2 will be held in October 2023.

If those judges instead decide that holding such a referendum is not in the Scottish Parliament’s powers, then the SNP plan on trying to use the next General Election as a “de facto” vote on independence.

How will The National cover the Supreme Court ruling on indyref2?

The Supreme Court judges will give their ruling on the question of whether Holyrood has the power to legislate for indyref2 on Wednesday, November 23 at 9.45am. We’ll have breaking news stories and an active live blog to bring you all the latest from the court as it happens.

In the wake of the decision, political reporter Hamish Morrison will be outside the court in London’s Parliament Square bringing you the latest live from the scene.

From around 10:30am, he’ll be joined by news and features editor Laura Webster for a live broadcast breaking down exactly what has happened in the Supreme Court, why, and what it means for Scotland’s future.

We’ll also have unmissable analysis from experts like legal academic Andrew Tickell in the wake of the decision, and Hamish will be writing on exactly what it was like being inside the courtroom at the historic moment.

Rallies in Scotland and London

As many as 16 rallies are planned to be held in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision, either to fire the starting gun on the indyref2 campaign or to protest against a Union which has seen any semblance of consent disappear.

We’ll have a reporter on the ground outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, where one rally is planned, and more news and reaction from demonstrations across the country.

Other demonstrations will be held in Glasgow, Perth, Dundee, Selkirk, Inverness, Skye, Greenock, Orkney, Lochgilphead, Inverurie, Fort William, Stirling, Aberdeen, and Dumfries.

The Edinburgh rally, which will see politicians such as the SNP MP Tommy Sheppard take the stage and expects to have more top speakers confirmed soon, will also be livestreamed on The National’s website.
