Sturgeon pledges to hold 2nd independence vote in Scotland

Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon vowed on Sunday that she would thrive towards a second "legal" independence referendum if she wins parliamentary elections next May.

Sturgeon insisted she would seek the referendum even if the British government doesn't give a green light for it. In 2014, voters backed the decision to stay in the United Kingdom with 55% of the support. However, the influence Brexit has made on Scotland possibly prompted increased support for the option to leave the UK.

According to a Panelbase poll published by the Sunday Times, 52% of surveyed voters would like for Scotland to leave the union with England after more than three centuries. "I want to have a legal referendum, that's what I am going to seek the authority of the Scottish people for in May," Sturgeon said speaking to BBC earlier today.
