Title Lord McConnell: United Kingdom can still shape Europe’s future despite Brexit Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet The Conversation Media type Web Country United Kingdom Date 19/07/17 Description Ten years after stepping down as first minister of Scotland, Jack McConnell remains a busy man. I caught up with him by Skype in New York, where he was attending the UN meetings on development.
Now a member of the House of Lords, he is a veteran of the devolution campaigns of the 1990s and a strong European. As first minister, he was a leader of the movement for a stronger role for devolved regions and nations in the EU. What, I asked him, went wrong with last year’s Brexit referendum?
