It’s wrong referendum

AS the Scottish independence referendum nears its conclusion the Labour, Conservative and Lib-Dem Party leaders, out of sheer panic, have all travelled to Scotland to demonstrate their support to retain the 300 year union that created the UK.

It is strange that all three parties supported devolution, agreed to the referendum, but, probably because of complacency, appeared to do little persuade the voters to the benefits of being a part of the UK. The referendum that we should be having is that of our membership of the European Union and the independence of the United Kingdom, this would have done more to unite the nation than the fiasco north of the border that was created by our failed politicians.
