WELL-known faces of the independence movement respond to ridiculous tweets about Scotland's future in the second episode of The National's new Indy Myths series.

In this episode blogger Paul Kavanagh (the Wee Ginger Dug), broadcaster and campaigner Lesley Riddoch, author Sara Sheridan, drag artist and activist Lady Rampant, journalist Ruth Wishart and Scottish Greens co-leader Lorna Slater debunk some myths about a Yes vote.

Unionists' concerns for a post-independent Scotland include that it wouldn't be taken seriously internationally, Scottish independence depends on north sea oil and gas, people would leave the country after a Yes vote and independence is about hating English people.

Paul Kavanagh said: "They [Unionists] have bought into this kind of mythology of the United Kingdom that it's a global power and that if you're not a global power then you're insignificant.

"I think one of the things that the United Kingdom is beginning to find with Brexit is that it's nowhere near as important as it thinks it is. Brexit has kind of exposed a lot of the truths of British exceptionalism."
