Sturgeon Publishes Draft Bill for Second Referendum

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon publishes a draft bill for a second independence referendum on Thursday as she ramps up the pressure on the British government to make sure Scotland’s voice is heard in Brexit talks.

Scots voted by a large margin to remain in the European Union in June this year but Britain as a whole voted to leave.

Sturgeon, the fervently pro-EU leader of the ruling Scottish National Party (SNP) argues that the prospect of Scotland being taken out of Europe against its will validates a possible re-run of the 2014 independence referendum, in which 55 percent of voters opted to remain in the United Kingdom.
