MAY 2, 2022
On May 1st, both Muggles and wizards alike had a referendum for Scottish Independence from the United Kingdom. The result was a resounding yes for independence from both Muggles and wizards.
The Muggles voted 74% for independence, 36% against. The wizards voted 85% yes for independence, 15% against. The voting turn out was also very high. 87% of Muggles voted for the referendum compared to 83% of wizards.
But what does this mean? It won't be an overnight process, unfortunately. There will be meetings with the Ministry of Magic and the town councillors of Edinburgh as of course they are the most likely to form the new Scottish government. As for the Muggles, they have had their own parliament for years, so their transition will go more smoothly. While the Ministry now does not have any control over how they form the government, they will aid in assisting in any way they can and consulting with the Edinburgh municipal leaders to help them transition and prosper.
Hogsmeade and Hogwarts will remain neutral, however. Our sources indicate it may be turned into a city-state like the Vatican. What we can confirm at this time is that the new Scottish government will not gain control over the wizarding village or Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The Ministry declined to comment on the timeline of when everything will be officially complete. However, we will keep you posted as more events unfold.
