On December 12th, 2019, the United Kingdom has an early general election where the opposition Labour Party was resoundingly defeated in favor of a Conservative majority. However, the more interesting result came from Scotland where the SNP (Scottish National Party) won a large majority of the seats to Westminster. This has raised the question about whether Scotland wanted to gain independence from the United Kingdom, or was this just a result of the first past the post system.
