Brian McConnachie QC: Independence is risky business
COMMENT: Brian McConnachie QC of Lawyers Together outlines his group's view on the risks and disadvantages of Scotland becoming an independent country.
We have always had our own laws and our own legal system and that is a matter about which we are justifiably proud. Indeed for many months now I have been speaking out against the abolition of one of the cornerstones of our legal system, namely corroboration.
However, we have always been able to benefit from being part of the UK as well.
