UK: Supreme Court rules Scotland cannot call another independence referendum



This instance unanimously resolved that the Scottish Parliament could not hold a second independence referendum without prior approval from Westminster.

supreme court England ‘s municipal council decided on Wednesday this week. Scotland I understand that I have no authority to hold a consultative referendum for independence without the consent of the London Government and that I am dealing with “issues reserved to the British Parliament, such as the union of Scotland and England”.

This was the “prioritized and unanimous opinion” noted by Justice Robert Reed when he published the verdicts handed down by five judges who heard arguments in Edinburgh and London in October. did.

The judge stressed that the ruling was “in the public interest” and “not a political decision” regarding independence.

In his presentation, Reed thought that even if it did not directly affect independence, the influence of a referendum “is not limited to its legal consequences, but may include its practical consequences.”

“This Court found unanimously that the proposed bill relates to the matters reserved” and that the Scottish Parliament “does not have the power to legislate a referendum on Scottish independence”. ”.

The Supreme Court ruled that the consultations that Nicola Sturgeon’s nationalist government hopes to hold on October 19, 2023 “have important political consequences” and would “strengthen or weaken the democratic power of the Union, “Democratic Credentials” of Independent Causes.

In detailing the Supreme Court’s position, the judge recalled that the ruling Scottish National Party (SNP) had hinted at defending the right to self-determination and international law.

In this sense, he rejected the arguments presented by the SNP, understanding that this right could only be exercised by those oppressed in former colonies or by foreign military occupation.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon had announced his intention to hold an independence referendum on 19 October 2023 ahead of the ruling.

In his allegations, Sturgeon argued that Brexit had changed the terms under which the Scots decided to remain part of Britain, and he defended the new talks, stating that the London government had at least resolved the issue. I believe in “one generation”.

Scottish and British government reactions

In response, Scottish Prime Minister and nationalist Nicola Sturgeon said he would “respect” the UK Supreme Court’s ruling, but said he would continue to fight to celebrate it.

“I am disappointed, but I respect the Supreme Court decision. It does not make law, it only interprets it. A law that does not allow Scotland to choose its future without Westminster’s consent is The idea that Britain was a voluntary association is merely a myth, indicating that this is an argument for independence.

For the leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP), today’s court decision “blocks the way for Scottish voices to be heard on independence, but in democracy our voices cannot and will not be silenced. ”.

Meanwhile, Scotland’s UK Minister, Alistair Jack, assured that the government would “take note of and respect” the Supreme Court’s opinion on the Scottish Independence Advisory Referendum, and asked both administrators to “deal with important issues.” I asked you to pay attention.” to most people. “

“We take note of and respect the Supreme Court’s unanimous opinion. The people of Scotland want both governments to focus all their attention and resources on the issues most important to them.” Jack wrote on Twitter.

The latter has “made it clear that we will continue to work constructively with the Scottish Government to address all the challenges we face”, according to Scottish Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Cabinet.

Jack defended the actions of his executives as “an example of paying attention to issues closest to the public, such as restoring economic stability, paying energy bills and supporting the NHS (National Health Service).
