Alex Salmond MSP for Aberdeenshire East is urging all Aberdeenshire East residents to get involved in the referendum debate by reading the Scottish Government’s flagship guide to independence, which was published today (Tuesday).
The 670-page document was launched to an audience of hundreds of journalists from across the globe. The document Scotland’s Future: Your Guide to An Independent Scotland contains a comprehensive Question and Answer section, running to more than 200 pages, providing answers to 650 questions on independence.
The answers – along with downloadable copies of “Scotland’s Future: Your Guide to An Independent Scotland” – are available at www.scotreferendum.com as a fully searchable resource. Copies can be accessed online via the Scottish Government website; by e-mailing referendumwhitepaper@scotland.
Commenting, Mr Salmond said
The White Paper is the most comprehensive blueprint for an independent country ever published, not just for Scotland but for any prospective independent nation. I am very keen for this process to be as transparent as possible, that’s why this government has made clear its intentions in such great detail.
The importance of this publication is such that we are making it available free of charge in Scotland and members of the public can call or e-mail to get a copy.
You can take part in the My Turriff referendum poll to gauge whether people from Turriff would like to be independent from the rest of the UK or not.
