As the battle between Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon takes over the headlines, the BBC’s Andrew Marr assumes a longer view and addresses what will soon be the biggest question facing the nation: will it continue to exist? In the new issue of Prospect, Andrew looks at the historic roots of the frailty of the Union, which may well cause potentially perverse consequences today. He joins editor Tom Clark to talk about the history of the Scottish independence movement, what he makes of the battle within the SNP, and whether he sees any resolution to the ongoing battle between London and Holyrood.
