LDVideo: Why we are better together

The Scottish Liberal Democrats are part of the Better Together campaign which will be putting the positive case for Scotland to stay in the UK in the forthcoming referendum campaign.

Better Together have produced a video which shows young people from across Scotland saying why they don’t want to see their country broken up. Their arguments range from greater global influence on human rights and LGBT equality to international aid to greater security and jobs at home.

One good thing, as I wrote recently,  is that Liberal Democrat Secretary of State Michael Moore has given the SNP government the power to implement the long-standing Liberal Democrat policy of giving the vote in the referendum to 16 and 17 year olds.

    Surely such a campaign is in direct defiance of long-standing liberal commitments to Home Rule and our general anti-imperialism? Considering the vile Highland Clearances one wonders what remnant of liberal decency such a unionist policy can claim? Scotland has every right to Independence and every right to expect our support,! Better together? Shame on you!
