Scotland’s devolved parliament voted earlier this month to reject the bill and reiterated its opposition to the government’s Brexit deal with Brussels.   


“A majority of our people ... oppose Brexit,” Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill, who leads Irish republican party Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland, tweeted after Monday’s vote.   “It presents the most profound challenges to our island in a generation,” O’Neill said.
