Scotland wants to secede. The head of the ruling party in the country’s parliament stressed that she is going to demand from the central leadership of the United Kingdom to hold a new referendum on the sovereignty of Scotland. London responded sharply.
The head of the British Prime Minister’s Office, Michael Gove, assessed the likelihood of a new referendum on the secession of Scotland.
On May 8, the results of the elections to the Scottish parliament were summed up. The SNP party won the largest share of the seats again.
Its head and first minister of the country Nicola Sturgeon, commenting on the outcome of the vote, stressed that she was going to demand from the central leadership of the United Kingdom to hold a new referendum on the sovereignty of Scotland.
Michael Gove, in a conversation with Sky News, reacted unequivocally to this statement by Sturgeon:
No, we are not going to do this.
He added that London now needs to tackle more pressing issues. Therefore, the Scottish authorities do not need to speculate with legislation and move along this “dead-end path”, the channel’s interlocutor cut off.
