Report, 25 pages (pdf): Does Scotland Want a Different Kind of Brexit? John Curtice, Senior Research Fellow at NatCen and Professor of Politics at Strathclyde University


From EU Observer - Scots share May's vision for Brexit deal, survey says

"Scots have similar expectations of Brexit to voters across Britain, but are more willing to accept freedom of movement if it means keeping free trade

Scottish voters show little appetite for special Brexit deal

Despite voting very differently in the EU Referendum, a new report from the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) reveals that when it comes to the UK government’s Brexit deal Scottish voters have largely similar expectations to voters across Britain as a whole".

Brexit Repercussions Costly to Greece, Greek Reporter

"The Federation (Hellenic Federation of Enterprises) asks from the EU to maintain current market and trade practices, safeguard, as much as possible, closer economic relations between the EU and Britain, organizing a smooth transition to a future trade agreement. Equally important will be the impact on tourism. Greece should expect a decrease in tourist arrivals as the depreciation of the sterling against the euro will reduce the purchasing power of the British and limit their travel options. It is estimated that currently over two million British tourists arrive in Greece each year. At the same time, there are concerns about the 60,000 Greeks who live and work in Britain. Deputy Prime Minister Yiannis Dragasakis met with the British Ambassador to Athens, Kate Smith, on March 15 to discuss the issue, namely, the legal framework in regards to the residence status of Greeks in Britain".
