UPSOT Scotland has spoken. Its parliament, voting on Tuesday (March 28), to pursue another national referendum on independence from the United Kingdom. To be held once the terms and conditions of Brexit are final. The decision coming just a day before Britain triggers its formal first step towards Brexit. Further straining relations between the two countries, after last year's vote when Scotland opted to remain in the European Union. The motion put forward by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon passing with 69 votes in favour and 59 against. Allowing the minister to push the British parliament to grant Scots a second chance at an independence referendum. The first held in 2014 led to the country choosing against independence. Sturgeon saying the situation has since changed. A nuisance for British Prime Minister Theresa May preparing to begin years of negotiations with the EU.
