The Scottish referendum will take place on Thursday 18th September 2014.
In a nutshell, a referendum is a general vote by the electorate on a single political question. In this particular occasion, it is a consultative referendum and is being held to seek the opinion of the Falkland islanders on the political status of the Falkland Islands.
There will be only one question that will read:
“Should Scotland be an independent country?” and voters will choose yes or no.
Below, the links to the dates, question and the referendum booklet with more information.
We will discuss further on Friday in relation to why Scotland has the right to be listened. An important time in history for Scotland, the UK as a whole, and international relations.
