On September 18th of this year the electorate of Scotland will go to the polls, to answer with a simple, or some may believe not-so-simple Yes or No, the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
I’m intrigued to meet the people who believe so passionately about their answer to that question that they are prepared to brave the best and worst of Scottish weather to take their opinion to their fellow public. Whether it be knocking on doors in a wind swept Blantyre in late evening, or standing on the litter strewn pavements of Partick on a Thursday afternoon, I want to see the campaigning, the soliciting of views, the exchanges of conversation in action. I want to meet the people who come September 19th, whatever the outcome, can wake up and say, “Well, I did my bit.”
