UK’s Johnson rejects Scotland’s independence referendum request

No Comments

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has refused to grant the Scottish government the authority to hold a second independence referendum, saying he “cannot agree that now is the time to return” to the independence question.

In a letter to First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon on Wednesday, Johnson reiterated his government’s stance that the question had been settled in 2014 when Scots voted 55 percent to 45 percent to stay in the 315-year union with England.
