To no one’s surprise, Nicola Sturgeon’s first response to Britain’s vote to leave the EU was to renew talk of Scottish independence.
However, polls have since shown that a majority of Scots favour the Union. According to a YouGov poll the percentage is 54%. As for a second referendum, 50% of Scots were against the idea, while 37% supported it.
Nevertheless, Sturgeon presses on regardless. As ever with the Scottish First Minister, the Scottish people speak only when she likes what they have to say. 55% may have voted against the dissolution of the United Kingdom. But out of the goodness of her heart, Nicola Sturgeon will battle for their chance to have another go, and another go… until they give the right answer.
So much for the “once in a life time opportunity“…
