Wings over Scotland | Weekend essay: Choosing choice

Wings over Scotland | Weekend essay: Choosing choice | Independence | Scoop.it

Independence – To be self-governing, unhindered by the vested interest, guidance, or control of others, and free to chart courses, make decisions and shape your future in ways that suit your own populace. Independence is the natural condition of a nation, country, or state in which its residents and population exercise self-government and sovereignty over its territory, its resources and its future. The opposite of independence is not a union but dependence, an unnatural condition for any nation to exist in.

Future of Scotland

Future of Scotland | Independence | Scoop.it
The Future of Scotland group commissioned Ipsos MORI to survey 1,003 members of the public between 7 and 13 June. We wanted to ask ordinary members of the public – not politicians – what they thought about the future of Scotland, the constitutional debate thus far, and some of the key issues still up for debate. It should be noted that none of the results reflect the views of the campaign itself. It is a temperature check on the views of the public.
