Journey to Yes: Former BBC broadcaster Tom Morton on becoming a Yesser


The new series from Phantom Power Films finding out why Scots are moving from No to Yes on the independence question continues

IN episode five of Journey to Yes from Phantom Power Films, broadcaster and journalist Tom Morton offers his perspective.

For Tom, Scottish independence is a question of moral authority and whether the Scottish people are best served by self-governance. The collapse of Labour, Brexit and the prospect of eternal Tory reign in the UK has transformed the political situation. 

The independence movement’s claims for self-determination now have a clear moral and reasoned case, according to Morton, but it will take time to build a strategic campaign.
