Journey to Yes 17
5th July 2017
The next instalment from Phantom Powers Journey to Yes series features philosophy professor Anthony Grayling who campaigned for the No argument on 2014.
Professor A.C. Grayling was one of the leading intellectual voices who strongly argued for maintaining the union in the Scottish independence referendum of 2014. His argument was based on the strong historical role and cultural bonds Scotland had within the union. However, the UK’s vote to leave the EU changes everything and Anthony now believes Scotland, faced with being dragged out against its will, has every right to choose the path of self-determination if Brexit goes ahead. Scotland could flourish and independence may even bring about a much needed reform of English politics.
