Brexit Will Split UK. Scotland’s Getting Ready for Another Referendum


The Scottish government is reported to have initiated another referendum dedicated to quitting the United Kingdom.
 

 

 

 

The whole point is, Scotland wants to stay a part of the European Union. Given the fact that being also a part of the United Kingdom, Scotland will also have to quit the EU together with other UK fellow members.
 
It’s interesting to note that before the Brexit referendum, Scotland already held a referendum on the UK membership. Back then, the majority said no to the idea of quitting the United Kingdom. Now, the Scottish government says that the situation has changed and most of the citizens of Scotland value their EU membership over their UK membership, which is why another referendum on quitting the United Kingdom is likely to end up being a success.
 
That being said, the Scottish parliament has already approved such a referendum. However, the date is still unclear. However, there is an obstacle, which says that in order to conduct such an independence referendum, it needs to be approved by London. It’s also interesting to note that Scotland voted against the Brexit during the recent referendum. However, the votes cast by the rest of the UK eventually tipped the scale.
 
In the meantime, the British government is not intended to go back on the Brexit. That’s why many of today’s decision made by the EU are made without the UK.
 
Another thing to keep in mind is that Scotland is still a part of the United Kingdom, and even if Scotland does quit the UK at some point in the near future, it’s still no longer a EU member. However, they may well start a procedure of joining the EU as an independent state, while the UK will never get back to the EU.
 
By the way, Catalonia wants to hold a similar referendum to get independence from Spain , but Madrid is certainly against this idea.
