Boris Johnson criticizes the originators of the Scottish independence referendum.
The main agenda of the Scottish National Party (SNP) during the campaign was to announce another referendum on independence. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the referendum would be irresponsible and he would oppose it.
– This is not the time to talk about the tearing apart of our country – the British Prime Minister said in an interview with The Telegraph.
“People really want to tackle our economy and recover from the crisis together,” he added. “This is what people want,” he stressed.
The Scottish National Party (SNP) won the Parliamentary elections in Scotland. However, the exact results regarding the number of fines are still unknown.
The previous independence referendum was held in 2014, with 55 percent of Scots choosing to remain in the United Kingdom. SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon believes that the political situation has changed dramatically since then. The Scots voted against independence, fearing leaving the European Union. With Britain leaving the European community, Nicolas Sturgeon believes the Scots have the right to speak up again on the issue. When Boris Johnson does not grant permission to hold a referendum, the Supreme Court will likely have to settle the matter.
Support the greens
John Swinney, Deputy Prime Minister of Scotland and Member of Parliament of the Scottish National Party, said in an interview with BBC Radio that even if the Scottish National Party did not achieve an independent majority (65 seats), the Greens would support the proposal for another referendum on independence. In the previous election, the Scottish National Party had 61 deputies.

More than 170 thinkers from all European Union member states signed a joint appeal to the EU authorities that in the event of the independence of Scotland, that country should be incorporated into the group immediately. Say that Scotland has been in the European Union for more than 30 years and that no Scottish province has voted “in favor” of Brexit.
The appellants indicate that the European Council has already issued a confirmation of this kind in the case of Northern Ireland. If the country were to vote “in favor” of joining the Republic of Ireland in the future, it would immediately become part of the union as well.
