Scotland and Independence from…

A statement by Kate Forbes in November 2020 was: I couldn’t understand why we were content to put up with decisions taken by governments we didn’t elect.

But that was talking about the UK government where her party, the SNP, received support from 31% of the Scottish Electorate.

This result, even though 69% didn’t vote for them, was used to confirm the Scottish view that they should stay under European Union rules, but gain independence from the United Kingdom rules.

At 1 December 2019: The total number of UK Parliament electors in Scotland was 3,988,600.

From that number, 1,242,380 voted for the SNP in the 2019 General Election.

31.1% of the Scottish electorate voted SNP in 2019. The rest voted for a different party or chose not to vote.

The SNP’s leader Nicola Sturgeon described the result as a clear mandate to hold a new referendum for Scottish independence.
