3. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish First Minister:
"Brexit has now become Tory Brexit. The rampant right wing of the party is using it as a licence for the xenophobia that has long laid under the surface but which is now in full view. They are using the result as cover for a hard Brexit for which they have no mandate, but which they are determined to impose regardless of the ruinous consequences. Worse still, they intend to do all of this with no parliamentary authority. Virtually no scrutiny."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish First Minister:
"We will make our case in the House of Commons and in the Scottish Parliament. I can confirm today that the SNP MPs will vote against the Brexit bill when it comes before the House of Commons next year."

"I am determined that Scotland will have the ability to reconsider the question of independence and to do so before the UK leaves the EU if that is necessary to protect our country's interests. So I can confirm today that the independence referendum bill will be published for consultation next week."
Scotland's leader said on Thursday she will publish a bill next week laying the groundwork for a new independence referendum - the first step toward a new vote on whether Scotland should leave the United Kingdom.
Scottish voters rejected independence in 2014, but Britain's June 23 vote to leave the European Union has reopened the Scotland question.
By a large majority, Scots backed remaining in the EU, but they were outnumbered by a majority in England who wanted to leave.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told her pro-independence Scottish National Party on Thursday that "the Independence Referendum Bill will be published for consultation next week."
Sturgeon was speaking at the Scottish National Party's conference in Glasgow.
