Scottish Leader Wants New Independence Vote

Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon says a new Scottish referendum on independence is “highly likely” because of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.
She said on Friday legislation will be prepared for a possible new vote. Independence was defeated two years ago in a Scottish referendum, Reuters reported.
Sturgeon said she would do everything possible to keep Scotland inside the EU. She said this means another referendum “has to be on the table”.
Britain’s decision to leave the EU represents a substantial, material change in Scotland’s relations and could justify another independence vote, she said.
The Scottish leader also praised British Prime Minister David Cameron, who has said he will resign when a new party leader is chosen before October.
