12. From what I've seen and heard up here,

as usual, Labour's leadership have been sniffy about any thought of a formal agreement with the SNP, though some prominent members have been impressed with Sturgeon's leadership on Brexit and don't seem to be against it in principle.

The SNP's priority would be to avoid Brexit (for a few reasons - e.g. not wanting a resentful economic basket case as a future neighbour if independence came about, the problems with a land border, as the expectation is that Scotland would seek at least EFTA/EEA and customs union membership if independent, though it would be an issue even without that - a lot easier if both countries were in the EU or thereabouts, and the fact that it stands to suffer badly if Brexit goes ahead), but the obvious trade-off would be agreement to hold another independence referendum once the dust settled. Whether Yes would be more likely to succeed with or without Brexit is a question that nobody knows the answer to.
