Brexit was expected to transform the debate for independence in Scotland but support appears to be stuck at the same levels as during the 2014 referendum.
Former Labour MP Tom Harris said the main reason is few “regard the 300-year-old social, political and economic Union as more important and more precious than a 50-year-old trade deal”.
The First Minister’s “Plan B is a long term one” to bring voters around to her thinking, Mr Harris said, as he argued the biggest threat to Ms Sturgeon now comes from “her own party members”.
He added: “There is absolutely no prospect of her party’s grip on Scottish politics being loosened any time soon.
“The biggest threat to her comes from her own party members, who are not prepared to wait for a whole generation before achieving their dream of separation from the UK.”
