The UK held a referendum on Thursday – June 23rd to decide whether to stay or leave the EU and overall it was a victory for the Leave campaign.
However Scotland voted to remain in the UK by a large majority of 62%, Nicola Sturgeon – Scotland’s First Minister issued a statement on the day of the EU referendum result that she would do everything to keep Scotland in the EU including a ‘very likely’ second Scottish independence referendum.
Alyn Smith, a Scottish MEP made a call asking the European Parliament not to let Scotland down and Helga Stevens responded on her personal Twitter account backing Alyn Smith’s call.
