The Thursday night vote in favor of Britain withdrawing from the European Union is having a dramatic spillover effect on other issues within the EU, with Scotland’s failed 2014 referendum on its own independence now looking like a virtual slam dunk.
The Sunday Post did a new poll showing 59% of Scotland now favors secession from the UK, a dramatic bump from the 45% they got in 2014. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said it is “highly likely” that Scotland will hold another referendum.
That’s because in the 2014 vote, Scottish voters were warned that secession from the UK meant leaving the European Union, and with the UK turning around a year and a half later and withdrawing anyhow, many 2014 voters are feeling betrayed.
Interestingly, a poll from Survation showed opposition, 41.9% to 44.7%, among Scottish voters to actually having another referendum right now. British officials say they don’t believe there is any real appetite in Scotland to have such a vote.

they are crazy if they do. they will not be allowed to join the EU. Spain and Belgium (both with seperatist movements of their own) will veto ant such move.
By the time the Scots finally muster the courage to leave Britain, there will be NO EU left for them to join. That will be funny to see.
