Scotland is who I am. It’s part of me.
It’s part of culture, part of my heritage.
I think, as an independent country,
we have the chance
of creating a more caring
and more compassionate society
than perhaps we see elsewhere
in the world.
and we have difficulties, obviously,
but I think we have the ability
to integrate other people
into our community
without causing the disruptions
and anxieties and the anguish
that we see elsewhere.
Well, as an independent country,
I think it’ll probably struggle
to begin with, economically,
but I think we have the ability,
both creatively and financially,
to stabilise that and go on from that
to create a really comfortable place
to live in where, hopefully,
the people who are struggling
at the moment,
on the streets and in food banks,
will find a place to be and to live
where they have a place of their own
and a future to look forward to,
because that’s important.
People need a future to look forward to,
and I think an independent Scotland
could give them that.
We don’t want to see people
on the streets,
we don’t want to see people at food banks,
we don’t want to see people begging.
That’s not life.
That’s not how life should be,
that’s just wrong.
It’s just wrong.
And certainly, the United Kingdom,
as a whole,
has certainly shown itself incapable
of solving those problems.
But I think here,
I think we have that mindset that would
allow us to address them properly.
