It has become somewhat of a trend recently to demand a revote whenever the losing majority doesn’t get the result they were hoping for. Think Brexit, 2016 U.S. Election and now, the Scottish Referendum..
In the June 23 Brexit referendum, the UK-wide vote was 51.9 – 48.1 per cent to leave the European Union.
The 2014 referendum result, a yes or no question which asked “Should Scotland be an Independent Country?” gave majority to “no” voters. The results were 55.3% voting no and 44.7% voting yes.
Nicola Sturgeon, who took over from Alex Salmond, has stated “If Scotland is to have a real choice – when the terms of Brexit are known but before it is too late to choose our own course – then that choice must be offered between the autumn of next year, 2018, and the spring of 2019,”
When Sturgeon asked if she believed she could win a second independence vote, she responded: “Yes I do. Absolutely, I believe that.”
