During the independence referendum in 2014, Scotland was told by those who advocated a no vote that the only way to retain membership of the European Union was by voting no to independence. On 23rd June of this year, Scotland voted overwhelmingly, by a margin of 62% to 38% to remain in the EU. Despite this, Scotland now faces the prospect of being dragged out of the EU against the wishes of the Scottish people.
However, in the aftermath of the EU referendum the debate about …Scotland’s future is ongoing. As your representatives in the Scottish and UK Parliaments, Jamie Hepburn MSP and I are eager to get your opinion.
We want to know what kind of future you want for Scotland and how you think we can achieve that. As part of Scotland’s biggest ever listening exercise we have organised a number of opportunities for you to speak to us.
Tomorrow at 10am, you can find us at The Main Hall, Cumbernauld Community Enterprise Centre (The Muirfield Centre), Brown Road, Seafar, Cumbernauld, G67 1AA.
