Demonstrators wave the national flag of Scotland, during a pro-independence rally in Glasgow, Scotland on April 25, 2015Scottish nationalists backed by James Bond star Sean Connery are planning to push for a new independence referendum amid rising support for separation, just 12 months after a historic vote that they lost. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said her Scottish National Party (SNP) would outline its proposals in a manifesto ahead of May 2016 regional elections and could foresee a vote “in five years or 10 years”. “Our manifesto will set out what we consider are the circumstances and the timescale on which a second referendum might be appropriate,” Sturgeon told the Press Association news agency on Sunday.
