The Different Voices of Scotland

The three texts in the textbook are all concerned with the referendum on Scottish independence and were all written before the referendum took place. "The Best of Both Worlds" is taken from the website of the cross-party campaign Better Together that fought against Scottish independence. "Two Futures" is taken from the website of the Scottish National Party that led the campaign for independence. The poem "Vote for Britain" is written by novelist, dramatist and poet Alan Bissett.
