FORMER Scottish Socialist Party MSP, Tommy Sheridan, returned to Cumbernauld yesterday evening (11th August 2014) to field questions over the issue of independence and to set out his soapbox on why he believes Scots should back a split from the United Kingdom.

Sheridan, 50, was previously a Member of the Scottish Parliament for Glasgow - but last night the fiery politician returned to Cumbernauld to make his pitch for a ‘Yes’ vote in the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence.

With only 37 days to go until polls open and Scottish voters answer the question, ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’ Mr Sheridan has returned to Cumbernauld hot on the heels of his recent campaign visit to Cambuslang, last Tuesday (5th August).

Yesterday evening’s visit by the former Socialist MSP was part of his ‘Hope over Fear’ tour – although the Cumbernauld date was arranged by Kildrum resident Liam Stevenson.

Addressing the two-hundred strong crowd, Mr Sheridan tackled issues such as privatisation, the National Health Service, the Royal Mail, nuclear weapons, currency, food-banks, the European Union and media bias.

Joined on the panel by Kildrum resident and event organiser, Liam Stevenson, Mr Sheridan spoke alongside special guests Michelle Rodger – a former national newspaper journalist – from Business for Scotland; and, Catriona Pagliari – a Consultant Breast Radiologist – representing the ‘NHS for Yes’ campaign group.
