In September 2014, with the Scottish independence referendum, the United Kingdom came close to being broken apart after three centuries of one of the most successful political unions in history. Yet despite a conclusive No vote, the SNP took almost every seat in Scotland at the 2015 general election, and won a second majority at the Scottish parliamentary election of 2016.
Tam Dalyell has been one of the key players in the debate about Devolution since 1962, when he was first elected MP for West Lothian.
