Notes from North Britain

Hat tip to Ruth Davidson and Spencer Pitfield who drew my attention to "Notes from North Britain," a superb blog by Professor Adam Tomkins.

Professor Tomkins has taught constitutional law at the University of Glasgow since 2003. He campaigned for a No vote in the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and was one of the Scottish Conservatives on the Smith Commission, an all-party commission which agreed a package of enhanced devolution for Scotland in 2014.

He has a particularly good blog post today, One year on (nearly) which reflects on the Scottish political position and particularly support for Independence as it has moved from a month before the Indyref when there was a real possibility that Scots would vote to leave, to where it stands now.

I think this is one of the best argued analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of the SNP position that I have ever read.
