Scotland To Hold Another Referendum On Independence

Scotland’s leader says she intends to hold a legal referendum on independence from the UK if she wins Scottish elections scheduled for May. Such a move would put First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on a collision course with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who opposes another secession vote. Scotland voted to remain in the UK by a margin of 55 per cent to 45 per cent in a 2014 referendum. Sturgeon argues that Brexit has transformed the situation since then by dragging Scotland out of the European Union against its will.
