Further appointments have been made to the group leading the campaign for separation.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon joins Chairman Dennis Canavan and Chief Executive Blair Jenkins, who both want Scots to be offered a single question on whether Scotland should remain as part of the United Kingdom.
However, independent MSP Margo McDonald has reportedly rejected an approach to become Yes Scotland’s vice-convener, saying the SNP has failed to offer Scots a clear idea of what a separate Scotland would look like.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson MSP said:
“Barely a week goes by without the SNP announcing another flurry of names to shore up their separatist campaign.
“However, the electorate will not be fooled by yet more diversionary tactics from the Nationalists to disguise the fact they are unable to answer legitimate questions on what separation would mean for millions of Scots.
“Scotland is facing its biggest decision in 300 years and the public has a right to answers on the big questions such as currency, pensions and defence – and a single question on whether we should remain as part of the United Kingdom.
“Both the chairman and the Chief Executive of the separatist campaign agree the Scottish public should be given a straight choice on whether or not Scotland should remain within the United Kingdom.
“Now that Nicola Sturgeon has joined that camp, it’s high time that Alex Salmond was honest with the public in saying if he wants a second question on the referendum ballot paper.”
