2 Views On Whether Scotland Should Leave The U.K.

Monday, June 16, 2014

In less than 100 days, the people of Scotland will vote on whether to become an independent country.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson is joined by Stephen Noon of Yes Scotland and by David Whitton of Better Together to discuss the implications of Scotland leaving the United Kingdom.
