Scottish Prime Minister: It's time to become independent from Britain

Scotland's Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon said it was time for Scotland to become independent from Britain. Thus, she commented on the agreement signed on December 24 between London and Brussels on the relationship of the parties after Brexit.


According to Sturgeon, the decision to leave the UK from the European Union is contrary to the wishes of the Scots, so Scotland must gain independence by seceding from the United Kingdom.

Before the hustle and bustle begins (with the exit from the EU - approx.), It is worth remembering that Brexit is happening against the will of Scotland. And no trade will ever make up for what Brexit takes away from us. It's time to define our own future as an independent European country

- she wrote on Facebook.

Earlier, Nicola Sturgeon, giving interviews to several European publications, said that she would definitely hold a second referendum on the independence of Scotland. She named the next, 2021, as likely dates. The prime minister is confident that the majority of Scots will support her and vote to secede from the United Kingdom.

Recall that the first referendum took place in 2014. Then 55% of Scots voted in favor of keeping the country within the UK. Whether their opinion has changed after a few years can be found out only by the results of the second referendum, if it takes place. The thing is that Scotland is unlikely to receive permission from Britain to hold it, London is categorically against it. In particular, the current Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the 2014 referendum had already shown everything, so there is no need to hold a second one.

        Yes, even that is not the question. The Prime Minister of Scotland may well be arrested. The example of Catalonia is obvious. It is not enough to proclaim independence, it is still necessary to have the strength to defend it, including the military forces. England will calmly crush any encroachments of Scotland. We must face the truth, and who will put in a word for Scotland?

        So the main thing is that the desires coincide with the possibilities. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Industry is weak, agriculture is also weak, fishing is developed, but only under the EU the entire zone is open to its members. Britain will close the zone, and everyone will rush to Scotland, and then there will not be enough fish for everyone. The towers in the North Sea, so they are in the hands of transnational companies, who can take them. British military bases that the Scots will throw them out of their homes for centuries. And all this "mouse fuss", an attempt to bite the "big brother" will lead nowhere. Like the Sumerians, "we are a power, we can build a house, but we are afraid we will fall."

                  not at all. The USA has been pouring napalm over Vietnam for 10 years, and now the Atliban is dictating the terms to them. but we are talking about something that we would not pour napalm, for example, I flattered for the demolished memorial to the liberator soldier, or, say, take England into the blockade because of bulk some gaps? this is called a mirror response in diplomacy.

                  Moreover, while Europe is concerned with dehumanizing the population, it would be nice, taking into account the centuries-old experience, to attend to the reorganization of Europe before they had time to take us away. this is normal. it is a struggle with the sources of sponsors and creators of all kinds of "semi" fascist regimes at our side.

        They are part of Scotland, and are part of Great Britain as crown lands with their own flag. And unlike Scotland, Shetlands, and Orkney, until the 18th century, there were either Norwegian or Danish subjects. Yes, and no industry, in the capital of the islands of Lerwick, there are two fish factories, and a small shipyard, well, a small port where fishermen and oil saplers are based, receipts from them to the treasury are scanty.
        So that it makes no sense for them to enter one state with another history for them. To me the representative of our company "J & T" Anita, who lives in Lerwick, all the time said "Vladimir, we are not Scots, we are descendants of Viking, remember!"

      English projects and investments are received for 8 billion pounds a year. Plus several billion in direct grants from London. Immediately after leaving GB, the Scots will have to live on their own, which they will not like sooo. They will not die of hunger, but they will fall out of normal life for the Island.

        The point is completely different. The general defense may be abandoned. The fact is that this precedent will lead Great Britain to collapse. How many years they fought for the independence of Ireland, there will immediately be a split. A couple more regions will be asked to leave after Scotland.

          But the Shetland Islands, which do not want to secede from Great Britain, may also break away from Scotland itself. Separatism is a double-edged sword. In Northern Ireland, the majority of the population is Protestant English, they are against leaving. It therefore remained part of Great Britain rather than becoming part of the Republic of Ireland. In Wales, separatist sentiments are not very popular.

      But actually 84% of the UK population is in England. And its share in the country's economy is even higher. Wales will never come out. Northern Ireland will not come out either, although, perhaps, in the future, part of its territory with a predominance of Irish Catholics will go to the Republic of Ireland. But this is highly unlikely. The Shetland Islands may fall off from Scotland, and then Scotland may lose its main trump card - control over hydrocarbon resources.

    the current Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the 2014 referendum had already shown everything, so there is no need to hold a second one.

    That is, Crimea is “different,” where the 2014 referendum showed nothing and must be repeated under the supervision of all and sundry!

    British separatism is mutating. Now Scotland is also threatened with disintegration https://ria.ru/20200915/shotlandiya-1577221371.html

    Let's support the free, democratic expression of the will of the Scots ... As well as Texans and Alaskans! They also really want independence !!!!

      oh you will be swept away and if the crisis is a little thicker than that of those chosen by the rich among the poor, then all sorts of tigers are not only in Ethiopia.

    And live on what.
    Freedom and Independence of Scotland is more valuable than all "British pounds".

    That is exactly London caught the Scottish barons for the "golden calf". I think they will give it a little, and it will calm down, they will not ask ordinary Scots! lol hi

    Why are Wales and Northern Ireland silent? They need to exercise their right to self-determination! Freedom for all from the imperial yoke of England! wink

    Scottish Prime Minister: It's time to become independent from Britain

    Yes, I've been telling them about this for a long time, and what's the point? The North Irish are lucky with Brexit, they can soon expect to be united into one Ireland. Well, the Scots can only get out of Britain by military means.

    If fast Britons have been doing Brexit for probably five years, then even faster Scottish guys will separate Scotland from Britain for at least a hundred years at least !!!

      I propose to consider the act of collective removal of skirts from Scots and the peaceful process of dressing Scotland in pants as the first step towards independence of Scotland !!!

    It is important that the leadership itself proposes, that is, the legitimacy of the process itself is higher than the proposals from the field.
    Accordingly, the support of the population will be greater.
