Scotland’s devolved parliament has overwhelmingly rejected Theresa May’s plans towards a European Union exit, in a non-binding vote that could potentially be used as groundwork for a second referendum on Scottish independence.
Tuesday’s symbolic motion, which was proposed by the Scottish government led by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, was backed by 90 votes to 34.
A majority of Scots backed staying in the EU, and the Scottish National Party (SNP) which is the biggest party in Scotland’s parliament, has said that there should be another independence vote if its views on Brexit are rejected.
It also argued that the triggering of Article 50 should be rejected because the UK Government has left too many questions unanswered.
