World EX-P.M. JOINS DEBATE OVER SCOTLAND
london» Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says Scotland should get more sweeping powers but remain in the United Kingdom.
Brown entered the fray over the region’s future Saturday with a speech in Scotland saying Brexit makes the case for Scottish independence weaker, not stronger.
He said Scotland should be able to set some tax rates, sign international treaties, and have more control over agriculture, fisheries, environmental regulation, employment and energy.
