Independence

Sponsored Silence

The town of Corby held a mock independence referendum.

Corby is in England. Nobody there can vote in the Scottish Independence referendum.

But many Scots live there. This is because families left Scotland to look for jobs in the steel industry, in the 1930s and again in the 1960s.

576 people voted. By a majority of 414 to 162, they voted against independence.

This ‘little bit of fun’ was covered in the national press across the UK.

The prize is a better country for the people of Scotland. And that’s only 65 days away.
