Despite having not been resident in his homeland for some time, Connery has been a vocal supporter of the Scottish National Party, and has stated he believes he'll see a fully independent Scotland within his lifetime. He supported the party financially, until the British Parliament passed a law prohibiting overseas funding of political activities in the UK in 2001.
