Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced that Scotland will seek approval for a second referendum on independence. She said it was up to Scotland to choose "whether to follow the UK to hard Brexit or to become an independent country."
UK Prime Minister Theresa May says she'll only do Brexit her way, and the UK's master of loose talk is back in the news. Meanwhile, Labour could have a last shot at a second referendum and London finance is taking a hit.
Scottish voters overwhelmingly rejected Britain quitting the European Union. As Brexit draws nearer, many are anxious for Scotland to find a way out, but not necessarily at the price of leaving the United Kingdom.
Salmond is stepping down from the party he led for 20 years and suing the Scottish government. He has denied the allegations against him and claimed that the government has mishandled the investigation into the claims.
Brexit supporters in the Conservative Party are again making plans to topple UK Prime Minister Theresa May. It remains unclear whether a vote of no confidence would be successful — and who would succeed her.
