Independence….! Should the SNP call for another referendum on Independence…?

On September 18th, 2014, Scotland voted against Independence in favour of remaining in the UK.

The vote was quite conclusive with 55.3% voting to remain in the UK and 47.4% of Scots voting for independence.

on 23 June 2016 the  UK and Gibraltar voted to  for leaving the EU

The vote this time, however, was not so conclusive. With 51.9% of voters voting to leave the EU and 48.9% voting to remain.

What is really interesting, is that very few people in Scotland, voted to leave the EU. The majority of Scots voted to remain in Europe. (see map below & key)

 

This has left many of the Scots now asking for another referendum on Independence.
