The last debate of the Althing’s season next Saturday is also likely to be the most controversial and hotly argued.
The motion is “The time is right for Scottish independence” and speaking in favour will be Mike Mackenzie, an SNP list MSP for the Highlands and Islands, supported by Danus Skene, a former LibDem and Labour candidate but now a local SNP activist.
Opposing them will be local MP Alistair Carmichael, the Scottish Secretary of State and leading member of the “no” campaign and Ian Duncan, a leading Scottish Conservative from Perthshire.
Because of the large audience expected for this debate the Althing will move from the school to the neighbouring Tingwall Hall for the evening. The debate is on Saturday 22nd March starting at 7.30pm.
