You Decide! The Future of Scotland: A humorous non-linear exploration of the unexpected consequences of democracy where YOU DECIDE! exactly what happens, by Judgement Dave
Scotland may have voted, but this book is still as irrelevant and irreverent as ever!

It's the most fun book tenuously linked to the Scottish Referendum that in reality has little to do with it (both the indyref and reality) and was as (ir)relevant in the run-up to the vote as it will be in 10 years time.

18th September 2014: Most adults in Scotland voted in the independence referendum.
But what if you didn't qualify to vote? What if you couldn't vote? What if you just couldn't be arsed to vote?

Well now you too can decide the future of Scotland in YOU DECIDE! The Future of Scotland.

Will you help Scotland to international sporting glory? Will a Scot be the first man on Mars? Will Me...
