Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Scottish National Party started out with 63 seats from the 2016 election.  With 56 seats in the bag, including a flipped seat from Labour and two from the Tories, it looks like SNP will have 66 directly elected constituency seats, giving them at least one seat majority in Holyrood.

BBC predicts 63. But anyway the SNP not losing seats is a pretty big deal. If the Brexit + COVID-19 disaster saga continues as expected, being a member of the UK will look worse and worse over time.

Predictions for when they will have an independence referendum?

No idea.  First they have to get UK permission to hold one.
