Scottish National Party demands billions of pounds compensation for Brexit from Boris Johnson

Scotland, demanded that Prime Minister Boris Johnson pay Scotland billions of pounds in compensation for rising costs and Brexit, Reuters reports.

Brexit weakened the bonds binding the United Kingdom: England and Wales voted to leave the EU, but London, Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to remain.

The SNP, which wants Scottish independence and is pushing for a second referendum, said Scottish fishermen faced serious problems because of Brexit.

Johnson’s Conservatives “should apologize to Scottish businesses and compensate Scotland for the long-term damage they are doing to our economy and the billions in losses,” SNP leader Ian Blackford told the British Parliament.

Blackford called Brexit “an unnecessary act of economic vandalism committed against Scotland’s will.” “The UK government must now urgently provide a multi-billion dollar compensation package to Scotland to mitigate the long-term damage of Brexit to Scottish businesses, industries and communities,” he said.
