Alex Salmond announces Scottish independence referendum terms

Most wouldn’t know  , but there has been a Scottish Parliament since 1999 & in 2014  there will be a referendum on  whether Scotland becomes a separate self governing  country within  Britain . This especially  popular with the young & the Scottish National Party minority government  intends to extend the franchise to 16 year olds to take advantage of this . Also , th referendum will be conducted by  a Board  independent of the Parliament .

Very instructive  for BCIRT supporters to  see how this referendum has been planned .
