Since the United Kingdom voted in favour of leaving the European Union, the future of Scotland’s place in the UK has come under doubt.

Scotland is set to vote for a second referendum, as Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon outlined her intention to create a Scotland independent of the UK.

Despite the initial referendum in 2014 being defeated, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is adamant the people of Scotland want to vote again.

As Scotland strives for independence, questions are being raised over whether or not Scotland’s economy is strong enough to sustain independence.
