(Worthy News) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson rejected Scotland's demand for a second independence referendum, nearly six years after Scots voted to remain a part of the United Kingdom.
"The Scottish people voted decisively to keep our United Kingdom together, a result which both the Scottish and U.K. governments committed to respect," Johnson wrote in a letter Tuesday to Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who requested the second vote.
Johnson reminded Sturgeon that the 2014 referendum -- in which more than 55 percent of Scots favored being part of the U.K. -- was a "once in a generation" vote. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
