Biographical Sketch

 

First working paper from the Gwilym Gibbon Centre for Public Policy – Nationalists at Westminster: Ireland and Scotland a century apart

Jim Gallagher (Visiting Professor, University of Glasgow, and Nuffield Associate Member) and ​Iain McLean (Director of the Gwilym Gibbon Centre for Public Policy and Nuffield Senior Research Fellow) have written the Centre’s first working paper, entitled “Nationalists at Westminster: Ireland and Scotland a century apart.” (PDF)

The SNP may play a decisive role in the nature or direction of the next UK government. This pamphlet explores the origins, meaning and implications of this development, but also argues that the UK has been here before: from 1874 until 1910, a block of Irish nationalist MPs held (in Parnell's words) ‘a knife to the throat of Westminster’.
