The head of the Scottish national party Nicola Sturgeon announced the holding of a second referendum on Scottish independence. The bill will be published next week, reports The Guardian.
“I am convinced that Scotland should reconsider the issue of independence before Britain leaves the EU. This is necessary to protect the interests of the country,” said Sturgeon.
As noted by the BBCin Scotland does not agree with the results of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU in the course of which a large part of the population voted for the “Brakcet”. The majority of Scots supported the preservation of Britain’s membership in the Union because it is advantageous for economic reasons.
In September 2014 Scotland has a referendum on independence from the UK. Supporters of independence lost, because 55.3% of Scots voted against secession of Scotland from the UK.
