According to a survey, after the judicial decision for a new Scottish independence referendum, around half of the Scots want to use the next British general election to vote on secession from the United Kingdom.

This is the result of a representative flash survey of a good 1000 Scots on behalf of Channel 4, which was carried out on Wednesday after a landmark judgment by the British Supreme Court.

According to the Supreme Court, the Scottish Parliament has no right to call a referendum. Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon recognizes the decision, but wants to make the next British general election a quasi-referendum and contest the election campaign of her Scottish National Party (SNP) only with the question of independence.
