Brigadoon looming

On Monday I received a leaflet from the Scottish Government.

This laid out reasons as to why we should support plans for an independent Scotland, but it is full of assumptions and unsubstantiated promises.

We all know that Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat members of the Scottish Parliament are strongly advocating against independence, and are advising us to remain part of our larger, more-secure United Kingdom. Together they make up a large number of MSPs and therefore this leaflet is surely not their views, but only those of the Scottish National Party.

This leaflet is yet another ploy by the Yes campaign to pull the wool over our eyes in an attempt to attain its new- look Brigadoon on September 18.
