THE DECIDING FACTOR IN ME VOTING NO WAS GORDON BROWNS SPEECH
I was undecided as to how I would vote in the 2014 referendum until the week, or maybe two weeks before the vote. The prospect of Scotland leaving the EU was a definite deciding factor in me voting NO - as was Gordon Brown's speech.
After the referendum I started to take notice of the difference in the policies and principles of the Scottish Goverment compared to the UK Goverment and I started to question me voting NO.
After Brexit I was angry and very sad but convinced that I no longer wanted to live in this 'union' that was veering unapologetically to 'the right'.
I am very angry at the arrogant way the UK Goverment has dismissed Scotland's wishes and I now know we are anything but equal in this 'union', but I am also positive about the future of an Independent Scotland in the EU.
On Saturday 4 May 2019 myself, my partner and son where delighted to join thousands and thousands of fellow citizens walking to show our support for a referendum on a Independent Scotland.
