Well, Brexit became true.
Good. Maybe now it'll push a majority of Scottish voters to vote in favor of Independence! Alba gu brąth!
It may, but not for a while. The SNP doesn't have enough strength to force a referendum unless they win more seats in the Scottish Parliament in the next election. They're definitely committed to one now, but both the Conservatives and Labour are opposed and the SNP no longer has a majority on its own to pass the legislation needed to hold one.
Didn't Scottish Labour support the Remain vote, along with the Tories and SNP? Who is to say they won't band together and push to get Scotland back into the EU?
It's part of both opposition parties' stated platforms for Scotland, as well as their national platforms, to oppose any such referendum. Labour opposes such a referendum at least until the next round of elections (in 2021, and they will probably renew that plank in their 2021 manifesto), and the Conservatives oppose it categorically. It is literally the first and largest part of the Scottish Conservatives' 2016 election manifesto: no second referendum.
On top of that, for the referendum to be binding would require the approval of the British Parliament. Of course, the Scottish Parliament could hold a non-binding referendum to prove its point and broad support on its own, as technically even this referendum is not legally binding, there is technically no legal mechanism preventing Cameron from simply ignoring the result (although it would obviously destroy whatever remains of his legitimacy). The first referendum was allowed by Parliament for largely the same reason this one was allowed: to tamp down on pro-independence sentiment by decisively proving that a majority of people did not support leaving (despite SNP's claims at the time). That time it worked, this time it didn't.
Stop bursting my bubble.
*frowns as I wave my little Scottish flag*
But yeah my condolences and all that...
Was surprised by the UK vote to leave the EU. Personally, I think it's terrible for both.
