Members of the 'Freedom for Scotland' movement have cautiously welcomed the announcement by Chairman Macintire, they hope that the will be truly 'free and fair' elections and not just made to look that way, they have asked that another nation be used as independent invigalators, they ask for Northumbria or the Duchy of Lancaster be involved.
