Debate: Rethinking the Union (Part 3): The Union Or Independence: The Emotional Arguments
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Much of the debate around Scottish independence has focused on oil revenues, the Barnett Formula and on the question of whether we’d be better or worse off if Scotland goes it alone. This debate looks beyond the question of economics, to ask whether this country should remain united or separate from Britain, regardless of the bottom line. Even if an independent Scotland were poorer, would there be good reasons for cutting the ties with Westminster? And conversely, can the Unionists articulate a clear argument – from the heart – for keeping the status quo? Join the debate with Stephen Tierney, author of Constitutional Referendums and former MSP, and SNP frontbencher Andrew Wilson. Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival
