Who Can Hold a Referendum? Amending the Scotland Act. What About the Claim of Right? and How Do We Leave This Voluntary Union?

It’s a Constitutional Conundrum all right. Yes Glasgow South Side shared their zoom Q+A event with Professor Aileen McHarg, Prof of Public Law at Durham University.  We’ve taken selected questions from that event and spliced them together with clips from the Westminster Opposition Day debate on the topic of what next for Scotland’s Future.

The Supreme Court decision confirmed that the UK is NOT a voluntary union.  So how do we leave?  The outcome, at this point, is not clear.  But the two events we cover in this podcast provide some clarity on the legal and political barriers we have to overcome. As well as giving some hints as to how we might achieve that.
