Ten­nant’s Scots plea

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & - By Karen Rock­ett

AC­TOR David Ten­nant has vowed to back Scot­tish in­de­pen­dence in a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum.

The Scots-born Doc­tor Who and Broad­church star had pre­vi­ously re­jected the SNP’s drive to go it alone.

But EU sup­porter Ten­nant, 45, has changed his mind af­ter the UK Brexit vote.

He said: “I’m now at the point where I think if Scot­land goes again for a ref­er­en­dum they should go in­de­pen­dent.

Te n n a n t added: “Po­lit­i­cally I think we’re in for quite a dark time.”

At the time of the last vote for in­de­pen­dence, Ten­nant, who was born in Bath­gate, near Ed­in­burgh, re­port­edly said it was not for him to have an opin­ion as he no longer con­sid­ered him­self to be Scot­tish.

In the 2014 in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum the coun­try voted by a mar­gin of around 55 per cent to 45 to stay part of the UK.

But there have been calls for a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum af­ter the EU vote last June showed a ma­jor­ity of Scots voted to re­main. THREE sis­ters all gave birth for the first time within days to de­light new grand­par­ents Paul and Sharon Kennedy, of Gt Bard­field, Es­sex.
