Will Scotland Maintain the Monarchy?

March 24, 2014

According to The Telegraph:

Kenny MacAskill, the Scottish Justice Minister, said “it will be for the people of Scotland to decide” on the Queen’s role if they vote to leave the United Kingdom in September this year.

His comments undermine Alex Salmond’s official policy that the monarchy would automatically be retained…

However, much of the pro–independence Yes Scotland campaign and many of his Nationalist colleagues at the Scottish Parliament are republicans.

Dennis Canavan, the campaign’s chairman, has said Prince George should never be King of Scots. This view is shared by the pro – separation Greens, Scottish Socialists and many SNP members and MSPs.
