Liam McArthur points out where he lives on the Orkney Islands

Scottish views on independence


In his capacity of editor of People2Power, our board member Bruno Kaufmann has travelled to Kirkwall, the Capital of the Orkney Islands to interview Liam McArthur. Mr McArthur is the Member for Orkney at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh and has strong views on the forthcoming referendum on Scottish independence to be held on 18 September 2014.

Liam McArthur is a Liberal Democrat, who will vote ‘no’ to independence, but will request far more powers for the local and regional communities throughout Scotland and the United Kingdom. He understands the upcoming referendum to be “a great opportunity for more democracy” in Orkney, Scotland and the UK.
