One year on from the 'life-changing' independence referendum, Ekklesia co-director Simon Barrow looks back on his own involvement in the campaign and its p[ositive significance for Scotland, the British and Irish isles, Europe and beyond.

On the contrary it hits low income households and disabled people, and will increase further Britain’s alarming levels of inequality.
