A Tale of Two Countries?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

In 1995, Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, Lord Robertson, asserted
‘devolution will kill nationalism stone dead’. Sixteen years after the first devolved
elections, and six months after a ‘No’ vote in the referendum, his pronouncement
appears no closer to coming true. By contrast, the two-party Westminster system
looks to be under a far greater threat if the polling for general election is accurate.
