New Scottish independence vote possible

LONDON — Scotland’s leader has again warned that a second referendum on Scottish independence is likely if British leaders pursue a radical break with the European Union.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon closed the Scottish National Party conference in Glasgow on Saturday with a vow to take action to keep Scotland inside the EU’s enormous single market even if Britain leaves.

She said that if the British government rejects those efforts and takes steps to hurt Scotland’s economy, she would “make sure” that Scots get another chance to choose a better future.
