• Just one year on, Scotland envisages new referendum


    LONDON: Scottish nationalists backed by James Bond star Sean Connery are planning to push for a new independence referendum amid rising support for separation, just 12 months after a historic vote that they lost. On the first anniversary of the September 18 referendum, which the nationalists lost with 45 percent in favor of independence and 55 percent against, polls indicate a new vote could go differently. In one by TNS published last week, 47 percent of respondents said they would vote “Yes” against 42 percent for “No” — with the rest undecided. “It’s only a matter of time,” the 85-year-old Connery told The Sun tabloid.
