Abstract

Northern Ireland could secede from the UK, if its people agreed to do so. But Scotland cannot – and consequently it will be forced to join the rest of the UK in Brexit, unless Westminster agrees to let it hold another referendum on independence and Scots vote to quit the UK. Nikos Skoutaris compares Nicola Sturgeon’s position to that of the Catalan president and warns that she faces a constitutional stalemate unless a new agreement can be reached.
