systematic comparison of evaluations of the consequences of Brexit and
the consequences of independence, and (2) comparing the evolution of
attitudes towards Scotland’s constitutional status among those with a
more and less sceptical view of Britain’s relationship with the EU. This
evidence, it is argued, suggests that while initially it had little discernible
impact on the overall level of support for independence, more recently the
pursuit of Brexit has served to increase support for leaving the UK.
