This week in Tortoise: Scottish independence

Monday 23 November 2020


I hope this finds you in good spirits.

The Tortoise website: we haven’t just upgraded the website, we’ve transformed it. Do please take a look around and let us know what you think.

Scotland: will Scottish independence be one of the lasting consequences of 2020? Six years after Scotland voted No, much has changed. Brexit; coronavirus; Boris Johnson; Nicola Sturgeon. The realignment, if not the break-up, of the United Kingdom looks more likely prospect than ever. Dani Garavelli leads our reporting on the rising popularity of Scottish nationalism. Through the week, we will look at the SNP’s political and legal options after next May’s elections. And we will explore the divisions within the Conservative party on a future referendum. Scottish Independence is this week’s Tortoise File.

And ThinkIns:

The constitution; chumocracy; climate crisis; clinical negligence; culture revisited; and the coronavirus. That’s a lot for a slow newsroom to think about. I hope that in one place or another – on the website, in the daily Sensemaker emails, or in our digital newsroom for our ThinkIns – you’ll join us.

Have a very good week.
