Despite its rising popularity in England and Wales, the UK Independence Party remains relatively unpopular in Scotland.
It gathered just 2% in the elections for the Scottish parliament in May 2016. In the UK general election, the party failed to gain a seat north of the border.
David Coburn, the leader of UKIP Scotland, believes that is about to change.
Business Insider spoke to Coburn to hear about UKIP's struggles in a country dominated by a different nationalist party, why he thinks voters are abandoning Labour, and why Nicola Sturgeon isn't going to be calling a second referendum any time soon.
The Scottish National Party (SNP) will lose votes in the upcoming parliamentary elections if the country approves allocating more migrants, the leader of the UK Independence Party Scotland told Sputnik on Thursday.
