Hi all,

We're delighted to announce that Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling will both be joining us on Mumsnet this Wednesday at 1.45pm, to take part in a live debate in the lead-up to the Scottish Referendum on September 18th.

The decision with which Scottish voters are faced this month constitutes a significant moment in the history - and future - of Scotland and the UK. And with polls currently predicting a result that's too close to call, this final showdown between the two leaders could potentially prove decisive.

The debate will be conducted along typical Mumsnet webchat lines, but with each guest free to question and respond to the answers of the other. We know the referendum has been a topic of serious discussion on the site (we're currently on IndyRef thread number seven - and counting ...) so in order to ensure that the leaders answer your questions, we're restricting the ability to post to Mumsnetters who'd been members of the site for more than 24 hours before the launch of this thread. Otherwise, the usual guidelines apply.

Please join us on Wednesday at 1.45pm - and if you can't make it then, as ever, do post up any comments or questions in advance.

It's a vote, not an orgasm.

Greengardenpixie where did anyone say different? I'm saying you've been lied to.

If you disagree, what do you have to say about the Trident issue? The SNP pushing it as an issue, but also saying they want to join NATO. If that isn't a blatant move to get anti-nuclear campaigners to do the SNP's work for them (as Scottish CND have done) while still being pro-nuclear weapons for all practical purposes, I don't know what is.
