Hyslop explained: “Can we distinguish between two things? The right to choose, which is the right to have a democratic referendum a constitutional referendum.
“We argued for three things during the election, which we got an overwhelming mandate 45 per cent of the vote, 47 seats out of 59.
“That was for three things to try and stop Brexit, to try and stop Boris Johnson himself becoming Prime Minister and to have the right to choose and there is a distinct difference here people who might not yet support independence.
“But I know there are people and people who are traditional Conservative reporters in Scotland who absolutely believe that the people of Scotland have the right to choose and what we set out yesterday was the mechanism by which the people of scotland can have the right to choose and we’ve even drafted the legislation for the UK government.”
