Last evening, in George Square, Channel 4 News’s economics editor Paul Mason gives his analysis of the situation here in Glasgow.
The atmosphere in Scotland has been electrifying in recent months: politics is being talked about at every bar, every dinner party, damn near every street corner and, for the first time in my life, there is something like an informed electorate on this island. The people have tasted something of the power they deserve, and we know what it’s like to have hope again. I believe that when I cast my vote tomorrow it will be one of the most important things I’ve ever done, and I’ll be voting YES, but I’m going to be in tears whichever way it goes.
My main reasons for voting yes are explained with more intelligence and flair than I have in this article: http://www.monbiot.com/2014/09/02/someone-elses-story/
For the economic facts to support my decision, see this article: http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/09/16/a-risk-assessment-for-future-of-the-uk/
However you vote tomorrow, please do your research, and arrive at your decision through thought and analysis.
Change is coming. Hope over fear.
