Event description

Description

The UK's divorce from the EU will undoubtedly have consequences, it would be naive to think otherwise. But what impact is Brexit already having on politics and how will this change when papers are officially signed next year?

The Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014 marked another significant turning point in the UK's political history, with greater devolution for Scotland impacting decision making for the rest of the UK.

Levels of public political engagement have soared since Brexit and IndyRef, and translated into an increased turnout at General Elections in Scotland and Scottish Parliament elections. With the Scottish Government not giving up on the prospect of IndyRef2, what does the future have in store for politics across the country?

CIPR Scotland's annual 'Meet the Political Editors' event has another fantastic panel lined up for this year; with Hamish Macdonell (The Times), Rachel Watson (Scottish Daily Mail) and Alan Roden (former Daily Mail journalist and Director of Communications for Scottish Labour) ready to discuss how the country will move forward and negotiate a continually evolving political landscape.

Event programme:

18:00 - 18:30: Arrival, drinks and nibbles

18:30 - 19:45: Panel discussions and Q&A session with Hamish Macdonell, Rachel Watson and Alan Roden on the impact of Brexit and Indyref on politics as well as the prospect of Indyref2.

19:45 - 20:30: Networking
