Views from the board

  • Having heard investors that I know well, actively stepping back from investing in the Scottish economy, I fear for the future and am urging business leaders to share their support for Scotland to remain in the Union of the United Kingdom. It will only be by strength of voice and an evidenced based case that we will be able to defend the will of Scottish businesses of all sizes to remain in the Union.
    — Robert D. Kilgour
  • As a publisher I work in a Single Market and Customs Union called Britain. Events in other spheres illustrate eloquently the catastrophic consequences of attempting to leave such an arrangement, an arrangement which has led to Scotland being a cultural leader in the English language world.
    — Hugh Andrew
