The Herald and the independence referendum

We have received a number of letters on the Sunday Herald's editorial position on this year's independence referendum, and today publish a selection.

For clarification, the Sunday Herald's decision to back the Yes campaign in the referendum has no bearing on The Herald's position.

The Herald has a separate editor and our position is one of neutrality in the debate. We shall continue to hold both sides to account and scrutinise their policies without fear or favour on our news, comment and editorial pages.

Magnus Llewellin,


The Herald.
