Abstract

The Scottish Government yesterday published their draft plan for the constitution of an Independent Scotland. As well as dealing with the political arrangements in the event of a ‘Yes’ vote in September, it also suggested that such a document would enshrine various social and economic rights, as well ensuring that the country became, and remained, nuclear free. In a short reaction piece, Norman Bonney takes issue with the document, and argues that the plan pays insufficient heed to the momentous nature of the choices being weighed up by Scottish voters at the referendum.
