HUMZA YOUSAF says in every debate he takes part in, people’s opinion shift from no to yes.
THIS week marks the milestone of six months to go until September’s referendum on whether Scotland should be an independent country.
It has been fantastic to talk to so many people in Glasgow and across Scotland about the benefits and opportunities independence will bring to Scotland, and answering questions from the many different communities living here.
The Scottish Government is committed to providing information about independence and what it will mean for everyone through their independence blueprint Scotland’s Future.
With more than 100,000 copies ordered Scotland’s Future is now a bestseller.
Over the next six months we will continue to encourage as many people as possible to order a copy to provide them with the answers they need.
In every debate I take part in, people’s opinions shift from No to Yes, and this is also shown by many of the polls conducted on independence.
Last week a poll in the Daily Record showed the highest level of support for Yes since last summer, with 39 per cent planning to vote Yes.
The poll also highlighted that a quarter of people who voted for Labour in the last Scottish Parliament elections are now planning to vote yes.
Just last week Bob Holman, a prominent and respect Glaswegian anti-poverty campaigner and member of the Labour party, came out in favour of a Yes vote as he feels that the policies in Scotland’s Future can build a fairer and more socially just Scotland.
His move to Yes can set a great example for hundreds of thousands of Labour voters across Scotland who believe in social justice, as only a Yes vote can guarantee further powers for Scotland.
