With just one result left to declare in Scotland, it's clear that the SNP have overwhelmingly won this election.

Projections estimate that the nation will be represented by 3 SNP MEPs, 1 Brexit Party MEP, 1 Tory and 1 Lib Dem.

But what would it have looked like if Scotland was already independent and in the EU?

Ballot Box Scotland, an election data and projections account on Twitter, predicts that an independent Scotland would likely have elected 6 SNP MEPs in this election.

With the increased number of European seats, and better representation in Europe as result, it's also estimated that Scotland would have returned its first Green MEP.

Could this be a glimpse into Scotland's near future?
