Brexit Could Create New Support for Independence Among the Middle Class in Scotland

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

Opinion polls suggest that Scotland will vote to remain in the EU, regardless of the UK-wide result, and leaving the EU would mark a material change in circumstances since the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, writes Nicola McEwen. She argues that Brexit could boost support for independence enough for it to succeed, but proponents would need to fundamentally redefine their prospectus for Scotland, given the UK’s exit from the EU.
