They could be on the fast-track out. Prime Minister David Cameron is set to announce a public referendum Wednesday on the UK remaining part of the EU. Cameron’s conservatives, who have a slim majority, are hoping to push the bill through the House of Commons and hold a public vote as early as 2016. Scotland voted to remain in the UK last year, but it’s now grumbling that the UK’s component parts should have veto power over a Brexit. It’s a non-starter, but it could pave the way for Scotland’s independence in case of UK secession.
