Scottish leader vows to hold 'legal' independence vote

24 Janvier, 2021, 15:40 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

DUP leader Arlene Foster has said a potential vote on a united Ireland would be "absolutely reckless".

But a majority of Scots also backed staying in the European Union in the subsequent 2016 Brexit vote, stoking demands by Scottish nationalists for a new independence vote after the United Kingdom as a whole voted to leave.

A YouGov opinion poll, which suggested that 31 per cent of Welsh voters want an independence referendum in the next five years, put those against on 47 per cent, and those who don't know on 22 per cent.

She added if there was a vote on Irish unity, the arguments for the union are "rational, logical, and they will win through".

United Kingdom completed its separation from the European Union at 23:00 GMT, 1 January 2021 after more than a four-year delay caused by negotiations on the post-Brexit trade agreement, which was hailed by the British government but criticised, among others, by Ireland's Foreign Minister Simon Coveney as well as Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who said that "Scotland will be back soon".

She said most people in Northern Ireland wanted politicians to "settle down" and deal with the pandemic.

In Northern Ireland, 47% still want to remain in the UK, with 42% in favour of a United Ireland and a significant proportion - 11% - undecided.

In England, the margin was 49 per cent to 19 per cent, in Northern Ireland it was 60 per cent to 28 per cent, in Wales 49 per cent to 23 per cent and in Scotland itself 49 per cent to 30 per cent. There is an unstoppable conversation under way on our constitutional future. "We can overcome the barriers of partition and build a new Ireland".

Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster has said a border poll on a united Ireland would be "absolutely reckless" at this time.

"We only came back into devolution after three years out of devolution in January last year and then we came into the pandemic in March".

"Therefore we need to get on with all of the things that matter to everybody in their everyday lives". Our biggest market so far is Great Britain and will continue to be Great Britain, both in terms of who we send our services to and who we receive our services from.
