Abstract

For an irreversible change like the break-up of the UK, a one-off bare majority vote is a flawed option, writes Derrick Wyatt. He suggests that the UK government should make it clear that it would only recognise an independent Scotland if there were two referendum results in favour, and if the interests of the rest of the UK were safeguarded.
