Nearly 60 percent of Scots now support Scottish independence after Britain voted to leave the European Union this week, according to a new opinion poll.

June 27, 2016: Scottish Referendum soon

Here are the main problems with a Scottish independence referendum:

  1. Westminster may not even allow it –First things first: Scotland may have its own parliament, but to hold a national referendum it still needs permission from Westminster in London
  2. Scotland's economy cannot handle independence – Another consideration is that Scotland might not even be able to afford to be independent right now — and Nicola Sturgeon almost certainly knows it.

In 2014, 55% of Scots voted to stay in the UK while 45% pipped for independence.
