In the space of two years, the Scottish electorate has been asked on two separate occasions to declare its position with regard the two unions to which it currently belongs – that of the UK and of the EU. This special interest piece aims to take stock of the mood in Scotland towards Brexit and to consider the various options for Scotland going forward. It is starting to look probable that Scotland will have to go to the polls one last time. If the Scots cannot belong to both unions, then ultimately they will probably have to make one final decision as to which union they favour.
