UK: New Scottish independence vote 'on the table' after Brexit - Nicola Sturgeon
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stated that a new Scottish independence referendum was now "on the table" following the Brexit vote. Sturgeon was speaking at a press conference on the EU referendum results at the First Minister's official residence in Edinburgh, Friday.
Sturgeon argued that Scotland's right to a new referendum on independence from the UK is based on the Scottish people's determination and willingness to remain in the EU, an issue that, according to her, played a major role in the defeat of the 2014 independence referendum
