A Wrap On the Happenings Around the World

A surge in nationalism might be the earliest sign that Scotland is inching closer to severing ties with the U.K and seek independence. A recent poll has shown that most people want independence from the U.K which has reached an agreement for its exit from the EU.

Scotland Independence

The push for independence also coincides with growing concerns of the U.K handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that has triggered one of the biggest economic contractions in decades. Growing anger over Brexit distrusts of Boris Johnson and the shambolic handling of the pandemic might as well have created a perfect environment for the Scottish people to push for independence.

Of great concern to the Scottish people is the agreement that the U.K reached with the EU over fishing rights, affecting a good number of Scottish fishermen.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already moved to capitalize on the rising dissatisfaction among the Scottish people by publishing an 11-point plan that seeks for Scotland independence. The plan if implemented will push for a referendum that will determine Scotland future in the U.K.

EU Navalny Stance

Even as Scotland contemplates ending its ties with the U.K, E.U officials have swung into action in response to the arrest of Russia opposition leader Alexei Navalny. E.U foreign policy Chief is poised to make an official visit to Moscow and deliver condemnation of the completely unacceptable arrest.

In addition to the visit, heads of the 27 member states’ state government are poised to reassess the EU’s relationship with Russia. Currently, there are no solid proposals on how to respond to Navalny arrest that remains in detention. However, some countries led by Poland, Italy and Romania have already called for sanctions.

Mexico President

Separately, Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez has tested positive for COVID-19. He joins a growing list of high profile leaders who have caught the virus on being criticized for handling the pandemic. The president has been criticized form time to time for not setting a good example on the best ways to stay clear of the virus.
