Sturgeon, now nothing is right for the referendum – First Minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon believes there is “no justification” that could prevent a new referendum on Scotland’s independence from the United Kingdom. Commenting on the election results, Sturgeon quoted British media as saying that there is “undoubtedly a pro-independence majority” in the Scottish Parliament. “There is no democratic justification for Boris Johnson or anyone else to try to block the Scottish people’s right to decide their future,” Sturgeon said while the votes were still being counted. “To any politician in Westminster who wants to get in the way, I say two things: first, do not go on a confrontation with the SNP, but with the democratic will of the Scottish people. Second: you will not succeed. Only Joe Scotland They are the Scottish people, and no Westminster politician can or should come in the way,” he warned.
