This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss news of a leaked memo detailing plans to try to delay a second independence referendum by tactics such as offering Scotland additional powers, attacking the reputation of the First Minister and by trying to court European countries to speak against Scottish re-entry into the EU.

They also discuss the implications of this potential campaign – particularly the offer of more powers – against the backdrop of the Sustainable Growth Commission’s proposals and identify some key areas where Scotland could be offered powers by the UK Government that could even exceed those offered by the Growth Commission.

You can read our further critiques of the Growth Commission report here.
