"Another vote on Scottish independence is fast approaching after Westminster voted to renew Trident against the wishes of nearly every MP in Scotland, the [Scottish National Party] has warned. In a vote in the House of Commons, 58 of Scotland's 59 MPs voted against Trident renewal, with Scotland's only Tory MP, David Mundell, being the sole supporter. SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson said the vote exacerbates the democratic deficit in Scotland, coming just weeks after Scottish voters overwhelmingly backed membership of the European Union but were outvoted by those in England and Wales."
