EU referendum: 150 days on

Despite voting overwhelmingly to remain in the EU, Scotland now faces the prospect of a hard Brexit, which would see us taken out of the single market. 

That’s not what Scotland voted for.

While it’s become apparent that the UK government has no plan, and are completely unable or unwilling to set out what Brexit means, others have. Here’s what they have to say.

  • The OECD found that Brexit will harm direct investment in the UK. They say: “if access to the single market was lost, lower FDI inflows would seem unavoidable, reducing the inflows of new ideas and knowledge into the UK. This would weaken fixed investment, reduce export capacity and hit innovation and productivity (technical progress) over time.”
