She’s 500 miles away from London at her party’s conference in Aberdeen, calling this whole process a sham - accusing the Prime Minister of promising things he can’t deliver.
The First Minister intends to request a Section 30 Order by the end of the year - that’s the legislation she needs from the UK government to host ‘indyref2'.
The UK government - no matter who is in Downing Street - is expected to say no, now is not the time. I spent the full seven minutes of my last interview with her asking what her Plan B is; she wouldn’t answer then and she wouldn’t answer today.
On stopping Brexit, she needs to convince other parties to unite behind a temporary Prime Minister of a Government of National Unity.
That’s because she believes him to be secretly sympathetic toward Scottish self-determination.
In our interview she says she has not yet heard that directly from the Labour leader, but given he supports self-determination for “just about every other country in the word” she believes “his instincts lie in that direction”.
Jeremy Corbyn denies this; while he says he would not oppose a second Scottish independence referendum outright, it would not be a priority in the first couple of years of a Labour government.
Nicola Sturgeon is playing a waiting game. She is tight-lipped in talk of a Plan B, and is waiting to see if there will be a general election, and who she will be dealing with, before making her move.
