Much as I’d hate to see the UK break up, last year’s tragic Brexit outcome left the Scots with very few options, as I predicted in the immediate wake of the British referendum.
Which is why I’m glad that today First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon announced a second Scottish independence referendum, in order to secure the Scots’ continued EU membership.
While harbouring a strong resentment towards the demolition of the United Kingdom, my distaste for a shattered Europe, in times calling for unity, is even stronger (even if I indeed live in a country sharing Britain’s sentiment).
Ideally the situation calls for a Brexit annullment, but I suppose that’s wishful thinking.
At any rate: Good for you, Scotland!
