UK pandemic handling revives calls for independence in Scotland

Support for Scottish independence is higher than it has ever been.

Polling is consistently suggesting more than half of Scots want to leave the United Kingdom.

It has been attributed to Scotland’s success in controlling coronavirus compared with England, and overwhelming Scottish hostility to Brexit.
