The leader of Scotland launches a campaign to get a new independent vote

LONDON aEUR" The Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has launched her campaign for a second independence referendum Tuesday. She argues that Scotland would be more economically independent of the United Kingdom.

Sturgeon, who is the leader of the Scottish National Party and the devolved government, in Scotland, has said that she will release the first paper in a series outlining the case for independence.

In a 2014 referendum, Scotland rejected independence. 55% of voters said they wanted to remain in the United Kingdom. Boris Johnson, the U.K. government's Prime Minister, opposes any new vote on independence. He claims that the issue was resolved in that vote.

Sturgeon claims that the landscape has changed over the years, and this is primarily because of Britain's exit from the European Union. This policy was opposed by the majority of Scots.

Sturgeon stated that if we had known in 2014 all the details about the U.K.'s path, there is no doubt Scotland would still have voted for independence." He spoke to the BBC in an interview.
