What's up with European Elections: Europe in 60 Seconds
What are going to be the dominant issues in the European Parliament elections towards the end of May?
Well, difficult to say because it's going to be really 27 or 28 [countries]. We don't know about the UK. Different elections with somewhat different national agendas, but economy in some countries. But then a lot of immigration and concern about security are also going to be the agenda in some of them.
Is Scotland going to vote for independence?
Well, God only knows that. But I think it's a safe bet that if the UK leaves the European Union - that's likely. I think it's highly likely that some years down the road the Scots are going to have another referendum on independence. And if you look at how opinion is trending now, it is moving in that direction. But much will happen before that. So I'm quite certain we will be back on that particular issue as well.
