Scotland would vote for independence if Brexit goes ahead

London: Scotland would vote in favour of independence if Brexit goes ahead, but would vote to against it if Britain remains in the European Union, according to a poll released on Sunday.
The poll, conducted on behalf of the Sunday Times between December 3 and 6, showed that a majority of Scots (51 per cent) would back independence if Britain leaves the EU, while 49 percent would vote against it.
Meanwhile, a majority said that if Britain remains in the EU, they would vote against Scottish independence (58 per cent), with 42 percent in favour.
In the 2016 Brexit referendum, 62 percent of Scottish voters opted to remain in the EU, while across Britain 52 percent voted for Brexit. (DPA)
