ONE of Scotland’s best known actresses and comedy entertainers, Elaine C Smith, will be available for a wee chat with fellow Yessers and those who need to be converted tomorrow night.

Voices for Scotland is to host an interactive conversation with Smith at 6pm, via Zoom.

Smith has been a long-time activist and campaigner for independence. She has starred in numerous roles in popular television comedy series such as City Lights and Naked Video, but is perhaps best known for her roles as Mary Nesbitt in the BBC sitcom Rab C Nesbitt and Christine O’Neal in Two Doors Down.

Voices for Scotland said: “This is a great opportunity to engage with Elaine about her career, life, Scotland and independence. Like all Voices for Scotland events, attendees can be part of the conversation, getting involved in the chat and putting questions to Elaine.

“Support for independence keeps on growing, as shown by the series of polls that have emerged over lockdown, with those in favour of independence consistently polling above 52%.

“As independence remains one of the main talking points for people in Scotland, the webinar organised by Voices for Scotland is a great opportunity to chat about independence with one of Scotland’s funniest and charismatic political activists.”

Campaign organiser Allan Whyte said: “Elaine is one of Scotland’s best-known and most-loved personalities, so we’re delighted to have the opportunity to chat to her about her career, her activism and what a future Scotland looks like to her.

“At Voices for Scotland we act as a platform for people to talk about what matters to them, their families and those around them. The webinar we’re having with Elaine is another opportunity for everyone to get involved and be part of the discussion. It’s only by coming together and discussing what we need and want from society that we can start to build a better future.

“We hope that this event and the others we have planned will offer people a welcoming, friendly environment, away from party politics, to discuss how we create a Scotland for everyone.

“Plus it’ll be nice to see some new faces and have a laugh after what has been a difficult time for everyone.”

Set up by the Scottish Independence Convention in 2019, Voices for Scotland ( is a non-party, civic organisation that aims to facilitate big conversations about Scotland’s future and grow support for independence.

Voices for Scotland is currently holding weekly Get Togethers on Zoom to encourage conversations on independence without a party-political focus.
