Unlike some newspapers, this publication will never take a position on the independence question.
However, there’s one element to the release of the Scotland’s Future document that we’re happy to take a stand on.
We are very well aware that the proposals can be accessed via the Scottish Goverment’s website but physical copies of the document have been like hen’s teeth.
So it’s time to remember that not everyone wants to access this crucial blueprint electronically - and it has been nowhere to be seen in book form locally. Frankly, that’s an oversight.
You can access your own personal copy now however by calling 0300 012 1809.
