Why Scotland Would be Foolish to Leave the U.K. – Kerim Derhalli in Huffington Post

The question of the UK’s relationship with the EU is not the only question facing the British Parliament, but also the future of Scotland’s place within the United Kingdom. SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon wants to put an independence referendum to the people once again, though the question of Scotland remaining a part of the EU in the case of a vote to become independent is still unclear.


“The prime minister has claimed that Scotland will be leaving the European Union regardless of whether or not it votes for independence.

Speaking during an exchange with the SNP’s Angus Robertson, Theresa May also warned against “constitutional game-playing”.

Mr Robertson had accused Mrs May of breaking promises to secure a UK-wide agreement on Brexit.

She said there would be further talks with devolved administrations.

The heated exchange, at Prime Minister’s Questions, came after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced plans to call for a second independence referendum in response to the UK voting to leave the EU.

Ms Sturgeon wants the vote to be held in the autumn of next year or the spring of 2019, to coincide with the conclusion of the UK’s Brexit negotiations.”
