A poll published on Saturday (30th) by the British website YouGov says that most Scots want to stay in the UK, even after the British have voted out of the European Union. A decision which, at the ballot box, was rejected by the majority in Scotland, 62 to 38 percent.

At the time of the referendum, and after the decision was known, the Scottish Prime Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, had said that the independence of Scotland was back to being on the table. According to the survey, 53 percent of Scots, against 47 percent, does not agree.

When asked whether they preferred to stay in the EU and leave the UK, 46 percent of 1,006 respondents said they wanted to stay in the UK, and 37 percent preferred the independence and to remain in the european bloc.

In 2014 the Scots rejected, in a referendum, independence, 55 to 45 percent. Since then the Scottish National Party from Sturgeon has gained strength, winning 56 of 59 Scotish seats in the British Parliament in the 2015 elections.
