Prompt: Brexit, the cost of living crisis created by the rule of the Tories, and differences in perceptions of economic, energy and foreign policies management are creating divisions in the UK, particularly in Scotland. The Scottish National Party (SNP) has been ruling Scotland since 2003 and has been seeking to achieve the "right to self-determination" through democratic means. In 2014, Scotland held a referendum on independence, but the result was 44.7% for "yes" and 55.3% for "no." However, Brexit has reignited the push for independence in Scotland, with the SNP and other parties supporting independence favoring remaining in the European Union. The UK Supreme Court's ruling that prevented the holding of a new independence referendum has ignited the push even more. The Scottish premier's request included activating the clause in Section 30 of the Scotland Act 1998, which allows for the temporary cession of sovereignty from the British to the Scottish parliament, but Westminster refused. The question now is whether there is a future for an independent Scotland.
