There are few words so synonymous with Scottish Independence than the phrase Devo Max.
Over the years, Devolution Max – a full fiscal autonomy alternative to Independence has been floated by many a unionist. Unsurprisingly, their Devo Max musings always seem to coincide with growing support in the polls for Scottish Independence.
Like clockwork, when there is a rise in the polls for support for Independence, devo max is touted by union supporters.
Devo Max doesn’t reflect our nation’s interests and nor will it deal with the significant impacts being tethered to a broken Westminster have on Scottish families and our economy. Yet it is has become a favourite party trick of those who do not support Scottish Independence.
In this week’s episode of Scotland’s Choice, we explore the Devo Max question.
