Brexit, the pandemic and Boris Johnson are too many problems for them Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who wants to organize another independence referendum early next year.
“I was re-elected Prime Minister a little over a year ago with a clear commitment to giving the people of Scotland the choice of becoming an independent nation. The people of Scotland elected a Scottish Parliament by a decisive majority in favor of both independence and independence. The right to choose. Thus, the Scottish Parliament has a democratic mandate that does not controversial,” he said at the launch of a new campaign, presenting the first book in a series of white papers calling for secession from the United Kingdom.

But Boris Johnson has the last word on whether or not to allow the referendumAnd the British Prime Minister strongly opposes this, noting that such consultations can only take place “once in a generation”.
Nicola Sturgeon replies: “This government does not respect democracy. We have a Prime Minister with no democratic authority in Scotland and no moral authority anywhere in the UK.
