The controversial politician explains why he is leading his own campaign for a No vote in September’s referendumby Serena Kutchinsky / April 28, 2014 / Leave a comment
” A Yes vote is alarmingly possible” says George Galloway
SK: Where did the idea for your anti-independence “Just Say Naw” tour originate?
GG: The name is derived from the anti-drugs slogan “Just Say No”, which I “translated” into Glaswegian. I felt strongly that we were losing the referendum by default, and that the mainstream Better Together campaign wasn’t doing enough to secure a No vote. Now, I am the only person on the No side drawing significant audiences. I have held six meetings so far with around 4,000 people attending, many of those paying £10 to get in. My wife is due to give birth to our new baby in July and I plan to bring them both with me on the campaign tour bus.
