SCOTLAND’S Deputy First Minister will visit Kilsyth Academy next month to make the case for a ‘Yes’ vote to Scottish independence in September’s referendum. 

Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Deputy First Minister (Government strategy and the Constitution) and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities will be visiting the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth constituency on Friday 15 August, and field questions about what exactly separation would mean for Scots.

The Deputy First Minister’s visit will come after a series of high-profile figures to Cumbernauld, who made the case for Scotland rejecting independence.

Former Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown visited the town’s Cornerstone Church to deliver his case for why Scots should say ‘No Thanks’ to independence and back Scotland staying in the United Kingdom.

Then, on 14 July 2014, former Labour Chancellor and now Chairman of the anti-independence ‘Better Together’, campaign visited Cumbernauld Town Centre to officially open the new ‘No Thanks’ shop, which will serve as the campaigning base for the town.

Ms Sturgeon will visit Kilsyth Academy on Friday 15 August, and hold a public meeting between 7pm and 9pm, during which time the Nationalist MSP will field questions about the nuts and bolts of how an independent Scotland would operate.

The event is not ticketed, and any interested members of the public are welcome to attend.
