Abstract

Political deadlock between the UK and Scottish governments over Brexit might well have been avoided, if a greater sense of compromise had prevailed, writes Anthony Salamone. He argues that the incomplete embedding of devolution into the UK constitutional framework has exacerbated the Brexit-related tensions which have emerged, as the absence of avenues for resolution of multi-level political disputes lowered the threshold for return of the independence question.
