SNP at it again

The Scottish National Party (SNP) looks to build a new case for independence the BBC reports. In the 2014 referendum, Scotland voted 55% against independence, with party leader Nicola Sturgeon admitting many had not “found our arguments compelling enough”. Yet Sturgeon did not want to “browbeat” voters into accepting change. Scots I have spoken with favoured more independence (through federalism) rather than outright independence, but this option was refused to be considered by the SNP. I find the absolutism of the SNPs position at odds with many Britons. The article does raise an interesting point regarding June’s EU referendum, saying if Scotland wants to stay yet the UK votes to go then it would “almost certainly” trigger another referendum.
