The SNP and Europe: Angus Robertson

The departure of Boris Johnson, the architect of Brexit, and his replacement as Prime Minister by Liz Truss, a Remainer turned Brexiteer, could enable a reset in the UK’s troubled relations with the EU.

But this is unlikely – with substantial knock-on effects for Scotland where pro-Remain/-Rejoin support is around 70% or higher than in the 2016 referendum.

To explore the implications of the Truss era for Scotland Angus Robertson MSP, Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, External Affairs and Culture, is joined by Mark Lazarowicz, European Movement in Scotland chair for the last in our series of interviews with EU spokespersons in the five main political parties at Holyrood.
