We asked Gurnshire if any of you had questions for the speakers who will be at the Gurn Independence Referendum debate on Saturday the 31st in the Community and Arts Centre (see image of poster in this article). Here's what we
have so far, maybe other readers out there have some more. We will take questions on the night but we will also refer to these ones too if time permits.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 31st of May – 7.00 p.m for 7.30 p.m. The Centre bar will be open prior to the event starting so feel free to come along for a wee blether before hand. In the meantime perhaps Gurnites might have some thoughts themselves on the following questions.
I work for a company whose HQ is based in England. How will this affect me?
Where will the money come from?
How much will it cost me?
Will I have to pay more tax?
What happens if we get Independence and it doesn't work?
How will we protect ourselves.
What happens if there is a NO vote?
What happens if there is a YES vote and after the election we end up with a Labour or Liberal or Tory government?
After Independence if I was ill and the treatment was only available down south, would I get it?
If the Unionist Parties decide to give Scotland devo-max (or as the Liberals call it "Home Rule"), what powers really should be retained at Westminster? (Just the entitlement to be compelled to participate in illegal wars?)
Whichever way we vote, i.e. to stay in the union or to become independent, what are 3 things that will be better for us?
