More than half of Scots, namely 59%, advocate for the separation of Scotland from the United Kingdom. These are the results of a survey conducted a few hours after the announcement of the results of the referendum on Brexit, published in the Sunday Post Scottish edition.
For the preservation of Scotland as part of the United Kingdom stand 32% of its inhabitants, and 9% have not decided. The publication notes that even the number of elderly Scots, who traditionally oppose the independence, increased to 47%.
Nearly two-thirds of Scots believe that a second referendum on independence will be held in the next few years. Prior to the referendum on EU membership the independence of Scotland was supported by 40-45% of Scots according to various polls.
It was reported that the Scottish Government intends to seek urgent negotiations with Brussels in order to protect the right to stay in the European Union.
