So the Scots decided to stay in the UK, but the huge turnout, and the massive number who seemed to be voting against the Tory- dominated Westminster machine, and for the possibility of creating a more fair and equal society in Scotland, have shaken up the British political scene. The October Taking Soundings meeting provides an opportunity for us to discuss the nature of this shake-up and the fall-out from the Scottish campaigns. Adam Fusco will be speaking on the consequences of the Scottish referendum.
Adam is a PhD candidate in Political Theory at the University of York. His work is on the theory of self-determination and its applications for political devolution, constitutionalism and electoral reform.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday 1st October 2014 in room AG10 in Broadcasting Place, Leeds Beckett (formerly Metropolitan) University, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds LS2 9EN at 6pm. (This is the building directly opposite the Fenton Pub on Woodhouse Lane.)
