Danny Alexander answers Scottish referendum questions on Facebook

Danny Alexander said: “That was my first Facebook Q&A but it certainly won’t be my last. It was a great experience and adds to the vast public debate that has been happening on Scotland’s future."

With less than a month to go until the Scottish independence referendum, Danny Alexander, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, took to Facebook to answer questions.

Danny Alexander said: “That was my first Facebook Q&A but it certainly won’t be my last. It was a great experience and adds to the vast public debate that has been happening on Scotland’s future.

“I’ve taken part in debates everywhere from village halls to TV studios but I know there is a genuine debate happening online.

“There was not enough time to answer all the questions, but I hope I was able to present the positive case for a stronger Scotland as part of the UK and give some much needed clarity, on issues like the currency, ahead of the most important vote Scots will face in our lifetime.”

Questions put to him included: “It was published in the news recently that Scotland would be better off using the pound like Panama with no central bank, what do you make of this?” and “What is your long term vision for Scotland as part of the Union – in 10 words or less.”
