Mr Spence told Sky News that Scotland will not break up the union if the Brexit negotiations go well as it will negate the need for Scotland to strike a deal with the EU on their own. The political expert also outlined that the bond between England and Scotland would mean negotiations to break the union would prove to be difficult. Finally, Mr Spence argued that Scotland’s use of the pound is a stumbling block in leaving the UK.    

Mr Spence said: “I don’t think we are likely to see the break up of the UK simply because if the Brexit negotiations go well then it negates a lot of the argument for needing to strike out on their own.

“If they go badly we go back over the hundreds of years of history between England and Scotland and the ties that bond those two.

“Just imagine the difficulties in trying to negotiate that change.

“Can you imagine the difficulties say if there was a border imposed between Scotland and England.

“Brexit has put Scotland on the wrong road.

“The further down that road we go the longer it will take and the harder it will be to get back on the right one.

“We need to get back on the right road as soon as possible.

“To that end, we have informed Parliament this morning that we will now ask the electoral commission to re-test the question ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’
