In the midst of various Frexit, Italexit, and Grexit battles, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced she will seek a Second Scottish Independence Referendum.
Recall that Nicola Sturgeon succeeded Alex Salmond as First Minister of Scotland following his resignation in the wake of the defeat of the “Yes Scotland campaign” in the Scottish independence referendum, in November 2014.
The referendum was supposed to have killed the Scottish independence movement. It didn’t. From the first link:
The Scottish National party will launch the process for holding a second referendum on Scottish independence next week, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
She said autumn 2018 to spring 2019 would likely be the best time to hold the vote.
She said the Scottish National party’s mandate for a second referendum “is beyond doubt” after the result of last June’s Brexit vote, in which 62 per cent of Scottish voters backed remain.
The prime minister’s office admitted last week that they expect Ms. Sturgeon to seek a referendum next autumn, though the government would fight to delay any vote until after Britain leaves the EU.
