Why I Want To See A Yes Vote In Scotland Today

From today's Independent newspaper

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews will vote on today whether to finally allow women members, 260 years after it was founded.

A spokesman for The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews said: "The club is balloting its members on a change to its membership rules that would enable it to welcome women members.

"Over 2,400 ballot papers have been sent out and the vote is independently scrutinised by Electoral Reform Services. A simple majority is required to effect the proposed change. Should the outcome be in favour of welcoming women members the decision will take immediate effect."

My comment: The Open Championship should never again be played at any club which does not have membership open to all.
