Glasgow, Scotland: First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she’ll publish a draft Scottish Independence Referendum Bill next week, holding out the threat of breaking up the UK if she feels her nation’s interests aren’t protected in Brexit negotiations.
“I am determined that Scotland will have the ability to reconsider the question of independence—and to do so before the UK leaves the EU—if that is necessary to protect our country’s interests," Sturgeon said, to cheers from her Scottish National Party’s annual conference in Glasgow on Thursday.
