Referendum not an election (Kennedy Stewart)
I am amazed at the number of people I’ve met who appear to be under the illusion we are holding an election on September 18th to decide whether or not Alex Salmond should become “Lord Emperor of Scotland”.
“He is promising this but he won’t be able to do that” they say, as if we are having a presidential election.
We will not be electing anyone or any party to office next month.
The sole purpose of the referendum is to decide whether or not Scotland should become an independent country.
A ‘Yes’ vote is not a vote for Salmond or the SNP.
We will only elect our leaders if and when independence is achieved.
