When the Scottish Parliament votes to hold a second independence referendum on September 18, we can expect a whole host of commentators and politicians to make their own predictions about what the result might be.
Some of these predictions will be as predictable as the results of any general election, and others will be less so.
For instance, if a Labour leader were to emerge victorious in the Scottish elections of May 2020, it is entirely possible that he or she would win the Scottish National Party by a landslide, leading to a new Scottish Parliament and a new UK Government, which would likely have no power whatsoever.
But these predictions are far from certain.
For one thing, if the SNP were to win a substantial majority in the upcoming general election (it is expected that it will, but it will be impossible to predict its exact result in advance), it would have a very strong chance of forming a government.
It would also have the chance to win the UK Independence Party (UKIP), which would in turn be in a stronger position to form a government than the SNP.
If there was a second Scottish independence referendum in 2019, the outcome could well be very different.
The only thing that is certain is that there is a very large number of people who do not want Scotland to leave the UK.
The SNP has a record of voting to leave many countries, and the SNP will not want a second referendum.
If a second vote were to be held, it would not be possible to predict the outcome in advance, and would likely be quite unpopular with Scottish voters.
The same goes for the Labour Party, whose leader Jeremy Corbyn is currently in a race to become Britain’s next Prime Minister.
If the Labour party were to form an independent government, the SNP would be the only party in Scotland that could form a minority government.
However, if there was another independence referendum held in 2019 or 2020, then there would be a lot of pressure on the Scottish Labour Party to form another government.
This would be quite difficult to predict in advance.
In this scenario, the UK Government would have the option to call a second poll to decide the future of Scotland, and Labour would then be the largest party in Parliament.
But if Labour did form a second government, it may not be able to form any government at all, as it would be under immense pressure from the SNP, as well as from the Greens.
A second independence vote in 2020 would also likely result in a significant reduction in Scottish independence.
For a second independent referendum to happen, the only thing required is that Scotland’s people voted in favour of independence by a substantial margin.
If Scotland were to vote in favour, then the SNP and Labour both win by a significant margin.
This is not an unreasonable scenario, as the UK government would be in no position to govern without Scottish support.
However if Scotland votes to leave, the Labour government would not necessarily win any votes in favour.
Instead, it could be replaced by the Greens or UKIP.
If this were to happen then it would result in Scotland becoming an independent country with a new government.
Although the prospect of another Scottish independence vote would be very unlikely, the chances of another independence vote happening in 2020, 2020 could be very high.
The last time Scotland was part of a country was in 1991.
In that case, it was in an election for a UK parliament that was ultimately won by the Labour parties, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats.
But that vote was won by a small number of Scottish voters, and Scotland’s future as a country would be significantly altered.
The referendum on Scottish independence will be held on September 20, 2021.
The Scottish Parliament has a 60 day time limit to hold the referendum, which means that a vote can only be held if all its members agree on it, or if the result of the vote is recorded on a day the UK parliament is not in session.
Scotland will not be in session in 2020 as it has already voted to leave.
If that happens, then it will take a month to prepare for the referendum to take place.
However the result would then not be known for another month.
If all its MPs agree, then a majority of its MPs will vote in support of the Scottish government.
If none of its lawmakers agree, it will vote against it.
If no MPs agree on a government, then they will vote to remain in the UK, and so on.
If neither of those things happen, then one of the two options is to hold another referendum in a few months.
The main issue will be whether the people of Scotland would be prepared to accept a third referendum, or not.
The independence question is likely to be one of those which is the most divisive, and one which will only become more so the day that Scotland decides to leave or stay in the EU.
If we look at the polling in 2020 and the next general election in 2021, we see that the majority of Scots are opposed to another referendum, but that is not the case if
