Brexit vote legitimacy
Dear Editor: Legitimacy of Brexit Vote In September 2014, as a resident of Scotland, I voted in the referendum on the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” The result was a clear majority against independence. Although the cessation of Scotland would have great implications for the other components of the United Kingdom no vote was held other than in Scotland. The way the votes were counted and announced revealed that there was a regional variation but the Referendum result rested on the totals, for or against, for the whole of Scotland. The constituency in this case was the population eligible to vote in Scotland. There was no discussion that should the result have gone the other way independence could have been prevented by the other parts of the United Kingdom. This year there was a second referendum on whether the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union and this time the constituency was the whole of the UK. The vote showed a majority wishing to leave but once again there was a regional variation but none of the countries or regions had been given the right of veto, the totals were the deciding factors. If retrospectively a right of veto is recognised a further referendum on Scotland’s independence should be based on the verdict of the whole UK supporting the proposition. In this case the constituency must contain England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
