    No War Outbreak in 1914: Impact on UK Domestically

    I definitely think the momentum was towards Scottish Home Rule though I must admit my expertise is really with interwar Scotland as opposed to the pre-1914 situation. The big question would be whether events in Ireland would affect the Liberals domination of Scottish politics allowing the...

My gut feeling is that they were the Liberal Lords who pushed for this amendment to the Scotland Act of 1978: "The members of which shall...

    There Shall Be a Scottish Assembly - Yes in 1979

    Very interesting so far. I don't know if you know but there was an aristocratic funded campaign in 1978 calling for Proportional Representation to be the electoral system of the proposed Scottish Assembly. I believe their plan was to keep campaigning once the devolution referendum was won so...
