Today, Thursday, September 18, 2014, will be a momentous day in Scotland’s history.
For the people of Scotland will decide, once and for all, whether they should be independent.
Before people make that decision, Prime Minister David Cameron and First Minister Alex Salmond agreed to speak directly to Carluke and Lanark Gazette readers.
It is the first time the two have gone head to head on the issue and we’re delighted that they agreed to use the Gazette to make their case.
They have each laid out their arguments so that readers can make an informed decision at the polling stations.
Yes Campaign chief executive Blair Jenkins and Better Together campaign director Blair McDougall have also taken part in our question and answer session. The two Blairs have both answered five questions for us.
We hope that our four page special Independence supplement will give readers all the information they need to make a decision today.
So make sure you get your Gazette if you want to read the case for and against Independence, argued by First Minister Alex Salmond and Prime Minister David Cameron.
