THANK YOU

Vote No Borders

The people of Scotland voted No.

Thanks to you for sharing your positive views of the Union in the many letters, comments, songs and poems you sent us and that we have been able to share on this website, Facebook, Twitter and in the Scottish press and cinemas. Thank you for engaging in the conversation and emboldening the silenced majority to speak up for the Union.

As the process of reconciliation and rebuilding starts within a new political framework, the referendum has shown it is the people themselves who, once again, will be central to making that process work.

We hope 'Why Build Another Wall', the VNB campaign song, will become a unifying song of reconciliation and celebration.

An Inconvenient Truth

Surely Alex Salmond's first duty is to be honest with the electorate, not threaten and bully those who tell the truth. In this letter Dr Richard Marsh (pictured) asks why not one single business is planning on moving North in the event of a Yes vote.
