"The SNP and the Scottish Government are ready to begin discussions around such a position immediately and I call on all parties to come together to build a new way forward".

The Times writes that "throughout the campaign the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats insisted that their voters were appalled by the prospect of a second independence referendum".

He added he had been impressed with Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson and wanted the party to achieve more gains.

She claimed the Prime Minister had lost all authority following yesterday's vote and said the damage the Conservatives had done to the country "cannot be overstated". Like many people, I thought most analysis of the Scottish political landscape post-general election could be expressed before we fully knew the results, so I wrote the bulk of this piece early on, before reflecting on the way things actually played out.

But although the left-wing, secessionist party finished top in Scotland, winning 35 of its 59 seats, it was 21 down on the number it won in 2015, losing constituencies to the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats.

The Scottish Parliament gave the green light for a second independence referendum in March, but any vote would need to ratified by Westminster, and Prime Minister Theresa May has already rejected this timetable.

Brexit, a late surge in support for UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and tactical voting were some of the other factors Ms Sturgeon cited as having contributed to the result. "If the Tories have genuinely in Scotland changed their view on Brexit then I'd be very pleased that that is the case but the forum to take this forward is through the joint ministerial committee".

Scotland was the only good news for a Conservative Party that lost its overall majority in the British parliament. She has presided over chaos over the a year ago, the result of this election shows that people don't trust her.

"This morning, we have heard SNP figures acknowledge that the referendum demands were behind its bad result".

With Mrs May forging a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party to support a minority government, the SNP has further called for representation for both sides of the political debate in Northern Ireland in the advisory group.

Trump worked 'very hard' to get student released
Secretary of State Tillerson said the State Department is continuing to discuss three other detained Americans with North Korea. In the past, North Korea has held out until senior US officials or statesmen came to personally bail out detainees.

She added: "She must take it off the table".

In the short term, it is clear that Nicola Sturgeon would not have announced one so quickly if she had her time again (although her hand was forced in part by the Brexit vote itself).

She also conceded that the UK Conservative party must reflect on its shortcoming after failing to win the mandate sought by Theresa May but cautioned against snap judgements.

Sturgeon said the United Kingdom government should also reconvene a joint ministerial committee involving all three devolved governments in Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff, and set up an advisory groupinvolving Sinn Féin to agree an all-party, all-government negotiating position.

Mr Rennie said a vote should be held in Holyrood to "sist, delay and stop" another referendum in the current parliamentary term.
