Abstract

It is highly likely that there will be another referendum on Scottish independence, sooner or later. Unionists argue that independence would be a financial disaster for Scotland but if there were a ‘yes’ vote, it would be wrong and self-harming for the UK to punish Scotland for that decision, writes Derrick Wyatt. Geography and common values would dictate that any government of the new UK that emerged from Scottish secession would seek the closest possible economic and political links with an independent Scotland.
