Nicola Sturgeon says second Scottish independence vote is "highly likely." Will Scotland break away?

  • Scotland will almost certainly vote to leave.

    The Scottish barley voted to remain in the UK last time as the vote was 53% to 47%. Now with the fact that if they stay they will have to leave the EU even though they voted overwhelmingly not to it is almost certain that enough people will vote out for them to leave.

  • The UK is breaking away from the EU, and Scotland will likely look for independence also

    It seems likely that a second referendum will take place in Scotland. Scotland rejected independence by a small margin in 2014 - 55 to 45. This is an indication that many people in Scotland are thinking about independence. Now that the UK has voted to leave the EU, the way is paved for other nations to do the same - not just Scotland. Perhaps the EU may dissolve entirely. Countries want to rule themselves without much involvement from other countries. People in the UK are excited and they have been cheering for days. This momentum will probably fuel energy for Scotland's next move in deciding if Scotland will follow the UK's path.

  • Yes, Scotland already voted to stay in the UK knowing full well that yesterday's referendum was on the cards.

    One of the main arguments of Better Together was “Vote for independence and risk being thrown out of the EU, vote NO and your EU membership is safe as a part of the UK”. Now the whole of Scotland voted to stay in the EU and is being dragged out by English and Welsh voters. If this is not a significant and material change of the circumstances in which Scotland voted against independence I don’t know what is. Saying they voted once and don’t get to vote again no matter what happens is nonsense.

  • I believe Scotland will break away.

    Scotland has been wanting to "break away" for decades now. I believe that it is imminent that the Scottish will get their way. Where there is a will, there is a way. They have waited far too long for this to happen, I am sure they will make it so.

  • Nicola Sturgeon says second Scottish independence vote is "highly likely." Scotland might break away.

    Nicola Sturgeon says second Scottish independence vote is "highly likely." The chances that Scotland might break away is quite high. Scotland voted to stay in the EU, 32 out of 32, which means every single place in Scotland had voted to remain in the European Union. The votes would definitely decide Britain's and Scotland's future.
