This is very interesting. Never expected to read this in a normally rather staid business website.
Scotland is heading towards independence from the UK thanks to Boris Johnson and Brexit
Scotland is heading towards independence from the UK. That's the inevitable conclusion to be drawn from the latest opinion polls which show a surge in support for Scottish nationalism.
The combination of anger at Brexit, distrust of Boris Johnson (who has a long record of offending Scots) and the UK government's shambolic handling of the coronavirus pandemic have all conspired to create the perfect environment for the independence movement.
If the Scottish Nationalist Party does take 55 out of 59 Holyrood seats as the polling is telling us and with 20 consecutive polls giving Independence majority support it becomes difficult to see how Independence doesn't happen.
