Scotland’s Independence - QuickTake

Scotland’s Independence - QuickTake | Scottish Independence - The Quiet Revolution | Scoop.it
Scotland claims credit for inventing the telephone, television and penicillin, not to mention modern economics. Its people built ships, bridges and locomotives for the world and, more recently, Grand Theft Auto. In a 2014 referendum on whether Scotland should break away to become Europe’s newest state, Scots voted to remain in the three-centuries-old United Kingdom with England and Wales by 55 percent to 45 percent. Rather than settling the matter, the nationalists on the losing side gathered strength and numbers, then became key power brokers by winning most of Scotland’s seats in the U.K. Parliament in the 2015 general election.
