LONDON – The British prime minister has said he is shocked by plans for another Scottish independence referendum given the country’s budget deficit and the economic challenges facing the entire United Kingdom in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic.
“I’m just shocked,” Labor and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey told BBC television on Wednesday.
“Last week we saw that Scotland had a missing record, a union bonus of almost 2,000 kilograms ($ 2,673) per person in Scotland. I find it really hard to understand why this is the right time to think about the liberation struggle. ”
Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Tuesday promised to publish a draft law on a new liberation movement, including questioning and timing of elections, ahead of next year’s general election.
