Blether about Money matters

The SDA monetary proposals were discussed including the associated issues relating to both domestic and international usage of a separate Scottish currency.

What are Blethers

     Blethers are informal meetings held at a variety of public venues in cities and towns across Scotland. The Blethers are open to members of the Scottish Democratic Alliance and all members of the public.

    The object of the Blethers is to provide an informal opportunity to discuss and thus obtain a clearer understanding of the issues and range of options available regarding Independence.

     This process will assist Scots to make an informed decision at the 2014 Referendum, when we will vote whether to govern ourselves or continue to be governed by others.

     The Blethers in 2013 will take two forms:

1. Informal meeting of between 4 to 8 local persons discussing issues raised by the attendees.

2. Larger meetings dealing with a specific issue of national interest.

    It is proposed to hold Blethers in Edinburgh, Perth, Aberdeen, Inverness, Oban, Glasgow, Dumfries and other towns when requested.

Details of these and other Blethers will be advised later.

Topics for the larger focused meetings will include:

1. The Constitution.

2. The Economy and Money.

3. Shipbuilding in Scotland.

4. Cost Effective Energy.
