Constitution questions are not new

Bowie, K. (2013) Constitution questions are not new. Scotsman,

90330.pdf - Accepted Version



Considers historical precedents for the writing of a new Scottish constitution in the event of a yes vote in the 2014 referendum. Argues that the tensions inherent in the Union of Crowns (1603-1707) led the Scots to write and rewrite their constitution through new parliamentary statutes and coronation oaths regulating the powers of the monarchy.
