But my job as First Minister, the Scottish Parliament's job, is to judge these things on the basis of what's in the interests of people in Scotland."She said she could imagine the "fury" such a move could spark in England, but added: "I t is perhaps similar to the fury of many people in Scotland right now as we face the prospect of being taken out of the European Union against our will."Ms Sturgeon told ITV's Peston on Sunday programme: ''If the Scottish Parliament votes to have another referendum in circumstances where that is the only thing we think we can do to protect our interests then frankly it is inconceivable that a Westminster government, who have thrust this situation upon us, would seek to block that, and I would seriously caution any prime minister, present or future, against doing that.
