#GE2017 Scottish results

This was a transformative election for Scottish politics: an election that marked a significant downturn in SNP fortunes, accelerating the party’s decline in electoral contests since their historic 49.7% share of the vote in the 2015 general election. The result will park any second Scottish Independence referendum for some time. Friend of Atlas, Keith Geddes, Policy Director of Pagoda Porter Novelli shares his final thoughts on the verdict of the Scottish people.

We're pleased to share an update from our friends in Scotland, Pagoda Porter Novelli, on the latest round of debate about independence. Keith Geddes is the Policy Director at Pagoda Porter Novelli and can be contacted here. He argues that for the First Minister the stakes are high. Historical precedence is not on her side either with both leaders who called the 2014 referendum and the Brexit referendum resigning when the outcome was not one they had supported. Undoubtedly if Nicola Sturgeon were to lose, she too would have to step down.
