Scots will go to the polls in the historic vote to decide the nation's future on Thursday, 18 September, 2014, it was announced: 'Independence questions confirmed as 'Should Scotland be an independent country? Yes/No'. The countdown to the independence referendum was kick-started by First Minister Alex Salmond when he revealed the date at the Scottish Parliament. The date for the vote, which is earlier than many had predicted, was contained in the Scottish Independence Referendum Bill formally lodged at Holyrood by Mr Salmond. It leaves 546 days for the campaigns to make their respective cases. Mr. Salmond claimed the 146-page document was 'the most important legislation to have been introduced since the Scottish Parliament was reconvened -- not in itself, but what it enables Scotland to achieve with the powers of an independent country'. The people will decide Scotland's future'.
