Scot Indie Ref 2 Imminent?

WITH REPORTS suggesting that Nicola Sturgeon is set to demand a second Scottish independence referendum to coincide with the triggering of Article 50, bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 10/11 that there will be another poll by the end of 2020, and 1/3 that the second one will take place before the end of 2024.

And Hills suspect that if there is a second indie ref the outcome will be a vote in favour - offering 8/11 that the next vote will go in favour of independence and Even money that it will not do so.

'The first Scottish indie referendum produced the biggest betting turnover for a political event up until that time, and we believe that a second one could rival, or even exceed the £5million we took on the outcome of the US Election, currently the biggest political betting turnover ever for the company' said Hill's spokesman, Graham Sharpe.

WILL THERE BE ANOTHER SCOT INDIE REF BEFORE END 2020? 10/11 Yes; 10/11 No

WILL THERE BE ANOTHER SCOT INDIE REF BEFORE END 2024? 1/3 Yes; 9/4 No

WHAT WILL BE OUTCOME OF NEXT SCOT INDIE REF? - 8/11 Yes vote in favour; Evens No, vote against
