Abstract

All of Scotland’s local authorities voted to stay in the EU, with 62 percent of voters backing Remain. James Mitchell traces support for the EU back in time, explaining that the initially tepid enthusiasm increased considerably as the EU became more closely associated with trade union rights. Nicola Sturgeon has already taken steps to secure continued engagement with the EU, while Brexit presents particular challenges for Scotland’s Tories.
