Scottish referendum debate inspires the electorate

THE Scottish independence referendum has been the greatest driver for years in getting citizens actively involved in the political process and enabling them to express what kind of values they want politics to represent.

It has also revealed the strength of feeling of many in England, too, that their interests are disregarded in Westminster.

For the first time in many years, the political establishment may be sufficiently shaken out of its self-serving torpor to actually look beyond the Westminster bubble and listen to the voices they've been able to ignore for so long.
