Scotland is richer per head than many wealthy countries. We’re a renewable energy powerhouse. We have what it takes to be an independent nation.
As Scotland prepares to become an independent nation, we must talk about what kind of nation we would be on the global stage – and how we can learn from the mistakes of the UK government.
People in Scotland increasingly believe that Scotland’s future must be in Scotland’s hands, not those of Boris Johnson and Westminster governments that we don’t vote for. Here’s the latest poll analysis.
Times Radio spoke to a focus group of 8 people who voted No in 2014. 7 of them would now vote Yes.
Ewan McGregor now says YES to Scottish independence. “Enough’s enough. After the Brexit vote, I’ve changed my tune about it.”
Former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale says a referendum is coming: “If you look at current independence polling, there has been a considerable shift from No to Yes.”
The UK, with its Houses of Commons and Lords and its antiquated view of its own identity, is not minded to progressive reform – but in Scotland we have a chance to do exactly that.
If a majority of MSPs elected to Holyrood next year back a referendum, no UK Government has the right to block the will of the people.
Why we need a referendum on Scotland's future
Westminster isn’t working for Scotland. We’ve been ignored too often. It’s time for a fresh start – to choose a different and better path. As an independent country, Scotland’s future will be in Scotland’s hands. Together, we can make Scotland the country we all know it can be. Sign below to pledge your support.
