Generation Aye

The case for democracy and social justice to be realised following a Yes vote is compellingly presented by 23 year old Miriam Brett. A fourth year student of international politics, Miriam articulates a vision of a Scotland taking its place in the world founded on governance principals of fairness and equality. Principals we have seen eroded under decades of Westminster government. Listen to what Miriam has to say as she reaches out to NO voters who may also believe in social justice and support governance in the social democracy tradition. Scotland cannot impose its majority values on the people of England, but it can find it ends up with governments committed to neoliberal values and the interests of the individual over collaborative societal values.
