Why Not? Scotland, Labour and Independence looks at the relationship of Scotland's two dominant parties, Labour and the SNP. Why, with the referendum looming, are the two sides not more united? A passionate look at the differences and many similarities between the two parties, Why Not? is an argument for independence that asks the left-wing unionists to challenge and revaluate their ideas of Scottish Nationalism.
