    The country’s longest-serving chief minister had announced a few months ago her intention to hold a new independence referendum, a decision she justified by saying that circumstances are now different from the previous referendum due to Brexit.

    But last November, the United Kingdom’s High Court threw overboard in a unanimous ruling, at least for the moment, the aspirations of Scottish nationalists, since, according to the judges, the Scottish Parliament does not have the power to legislate for the call for an independence referendum because such a bill would be directly related to the future of the union, and the decision, in the event of no agreement between Holyrood and Westminster, cannot be unilateral.
