The Scottish government is demanding a second independence referendum, but the UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, has ruled out giving consent for one. He has the legal right to do so – but if Scotland continues to vote for pro-independence parties, a second referendum may become all but impossible to resist. This paper considers when and how such a vote might take place and the factors that would make it seem more – or less – legitimate.
