Chief Spokesman for the Social Democratic Party for Scotland Mev Brown explained that although Brexit was widely considered to impact Scotland differently from the rest of the UK, it wasn’t the only argument for Independence. In an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Brown argued that the Iraq War, helmed by Labour Party’s Tony Blair, was still an influencing factor. Mr Brown argued that the Iraq War negatively impacted Scotland and therefore added to the desire to break away from the UK and become independent.
