Abstract

Twenty years after losing all of their Scottish seats, the 2017 general election gave 13 MPs to the Conservatives. Was that because Scotland is becoming more conservative? The factors behind the revival look to be more Unionist than conservative, explains Malcolm Harvey, with Indyref2, Brexit, and SNP's governing competence being the most significant.
