Description: On May 5th 2011, the SNP achieved an historic overall majority government at the Scottish Parliament, gaining them a mandate to hold a Scottish Independence Referendum, to achieve their ultimate aim of seceding from the United Kingdom and becoming an independent nation. The 2012 Edinburgh Agreement, between both Scottish and UK Governments was signed to declare the date of the Referendum, for 18th September 2014, with the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?”.
