Scotland: The Edge of Europe

Scotland sits on the very edge of the continent but how European is this nation located on the geographical margin? This film predates the Brexit vote but still provides us with an interesting look at how the United Kingdom and Europe both affect the country.

Back in 2014 Scotland held a referendum on their independence from the United Kingdom, the majority voted to stay in the UK but then in 2016 they were faced with another referendum, only this time it was to leave the European Union.

It is clear now that the majority vote was to leave the EU but Scotland for the most part voted to stay, making them far more pro-EU. This film covers such topics and asks why that is and explains what happens next.
