Support for Scottish independence grew

The independence movement in Scotland has recently suffered a setback. that Britain’s highest court ruled in November, according to which Scotland cannot hold another referendum on secession without the consent of London. So plans for another referendum had to be put on hold. Sturgeon had previously declared that if this happened, she would treat the next UK general election as a de facto referendum. According to Scottish MP Kirsten Oswald, the English court’s decision has given “new momentum” to the movement.

This claim is supported by recent polls of Scottish independence.
