SCOTLAND COULD HAVE VOTE ON INDEPENDENCE IN 2018

London- Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said autumn 2018 would be a “common sense” date for a second independence referendum.

In an interview with the BBC, Sturgeon added she would take things forward at “the pace that I think is right for the country”.

Sturgeon believed another ballot was “highly likely” following last year’s UK-wide vote for Brexit which was backed by 52 percent of the electorate who went to the polls.

In Scotland, 62 percent of the voting public wanted the UK to retain its EU membership.

Scottish ministers have put forward proposals they claim could achieve this, but have accused the UK government of “intransigence” on the issue.

Scotland voted to stay part of the UK by 55 percent to 45 percent in the 2014 independence referendum, however the most recent polling has suggested 50 percent of voters in Scotland would back Scottish independence. (QNA)
