Abstract First paragraph: There have been two dramatic stories in Scottish politics in recent days. One has seen Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland's first minister, hold talks with her UK counterpart Theresa May over the ongoing Brexit crisis; and confirming she will clarify plans for a second Scottish independence referendum in the coming weeks. The other involved the shock of seeing Sturgeon's predecessor Alex Salmond appear in court charged with attempted rape and sexual assault.
