Today, let’s talk about the forthcoming Scottish referendum. The vote on whether to stay in the United Kingdom or become an independent country will take place on Thursday 18th September 2014. The question voters in Scotland will vote on is: “Should Scotland be an independent country?” Voters can choose the following answers; either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’?
Coincidentally, 2014 is the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn when the English were defeated by the Scots. The Ryder Cup (Golf) is also being held in 2014 and recently Scotland held the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. For these reasons Scottish National Leader Alex Salmond chose to want the vote in 2014.
