Confidence motion against UK government could pass: Scotland’s Sturgeon

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Sunday she thought that a confidence motion against the government could succeed in parliament, piling pressure on the main opposition Labour Party to trigger such a vote.

“I think it is possible that a confidence motion right now could succeed. This is a government that is weak and unstable and becoming more weak and unstable with every day that passes,” she told Sky News.
