Scottish Parliament backs referendum call

Nicola Sturgeon's call for a second referendum on independence for Scotland has been formally backed by the Scottish Parliament. MSPs voted by 69 to 59 in favour of seeking permission for a referendum before the UK leaves the EU.

Ms Sturgeon says the move is needed to allow Scotland to decide what path to follow in the wake of the Brexit vote. But the UK government has already said it will block a referendum until the Brexit process has been completed.

think it would be good for Europe to have more 'smaller' nations, might mean that Brussels and Merkel dominate less ... roll on Catalonia too!

In some quarters they're saying that Shetland will want to break away from Scotland ... where they going, to Norway?! Or join the Faroe Islands?

They would probably gain by joining Norway. Are the Faroe Islands independent?
