    Default Pro-Independence Parties Win In Scotland

    The Scottish National Party won its fourth straight parliamentary election on Saturday and insisted it will push on with another referendum on Scotland’s independence from the U.K. even though it failed by one seat to secure a majority.

    Final results of Thursday’s election showed the SNP winning 64 of the 129 seats in the Edinburgh-based Scottish Parliament. The result extends the party’s dominance of Scottish politics since it first won power in 2007.

    “This is now a matter of fundamental democratic principle,” Sturgeon said. “It is the will of the country.”

    Other results from Super Thursday’s array of elections across Britain emerged Saturday, including the Labour Party’s victory in the Welsh parliamentary election. Labour’s Sadiq Khan was also reelected mayor of London.

    The election with the biggest implications was the Scottish election, as it could pave the way to the break-up of the United Kingdom. The devolved government has an array of powers but many economic and security matters remain within the orbit of the British government in London.

    Scotland’s nationalists win vote to set stage for a second independence referendum

    The BBC projected the Scottish National Party won 63 of the 129 seats in the Scottish Parliament, matching its performance in 2016 and giving it a fourth term in power. It left Sturgeon two seats short of a majority, though the pro-independence Green Party increased the number of its politicians to nine, based on the broadcaster’s projection.
    The election was dominated by a single theme: whether the nation of 5.5 million should get another vote on leaving the UK in the wake of Brexit. The outcome sets up an escalating stand-off with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over Scotland’s constitutional future.

    A massive victory for independence. Sturgeon will deal with the pandemic first and then turn her attention to the English parasite virus.
