Video Podcast: The End of the United Kingdom? It may come sooner than we think, John Palmer and Dr Andrew Blick (The Federal Trust, United Kingdom)

Federal Trust Council member John Palmer and Senior Research Fellow Dr Andrew Blick  discuss the threats to the internal cohesion of the United Kingdom arising from Brexit and Covid-19. They believe in particular that it will be difficult to avoid holding a second referendum on independence for Scotland. If such a referendum led to Scottish independence, Northern Ireland and perhaps even Wales would be likely to follow their example.
