Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond will use his keynote speech at SNP Conference to say that a Yes vote in next year’s independence referendum will be “an act of national self-confidence and self-belief”.
The SNP leader will argue that the devolved Scottish Parliament has delivered a “taste of independence” with policies to make Scotland a better and fairer country. Mr Salmond will say:
“A Yes vote is not about a victory for the SNP, or even a victory for the Yes campaign – or even the huge coalition of interests and enthusiasm that supports a Yes vote. be, above all, an act of national self-confidence and self - belief.''
“The case for independence is about what is best for people in Scotland wherever they come from. It is about who should be taking decisions about Scotland: those who live here or politicians at Westminster.
“This central question of who should be taking decisions is not an academic argument. It is a common sense argument based on our experience. "
