Scotland – Are you noticing the shift?

Well, what a week this has started off to be.

Our children will look back at these days as taught in their History classes as a time in which it nearly all went pear shaped…at least that’s what I hope they will be taught.

 

Of course, this all depends on the future actions of the POTUS, UK PM and our First Minister. Continue reading

Independence is Gone if Labour Gain!

So I wrote about this a while back in my blog post titled ‘Corbyns Labour is a Very Real Threat to Independence‘.

This blog post is on the same basis, except this time people should really start paying attention to what I am trying to say.

The biggest threat to Independence is not the Tories and their calamitous Brexit, its Labour…or rather Corbyns Labour. Continue reading

Scotland – Let’s Talk Currency!

I ran a Twitter poll on Saturday and the results are in.  Bear in mind that it wasn’t possible to have more than four options so I ran with the four most likely (option 4 being achieved post two years in the ERM with our own currency and an ‘adequate’ deficit).

To be honest, I am not surprised with the results.

The poll was as per the below: Continue reading

Resetting Indyref2 – A Mistake or Calculated Choice?

So before I start on this blog post, let me make something clear.  This is a post about why I believe we have made a collective error in judgement by ‘resetting’ the legislative plan for Indyref2.

My thoughts are that I fear Nicola Sturgeon putting the legislative process to rest for a while regards Indyref2 is costing Scotland the opportunity to leave the UK behind financially post Brexit. Continue reading

Pay Attention ‘Out of Box Thinkers’ – The Greens Hate You!

As you all know there has been a rash of articles from prominent figures ‘within’ the Yes movement who are calling out people who share a deeper desire for independence than those calling out the behaviour.

The problem I have with it is simple – who the hell are they to tell anyone who wants independence that they are not welcome to the debate? Continue reading

The Gloves are Off Scotland – The Wolves are Coming Out to Play!

So Scotland you have allowed the Wolves to come out to play…

This will be interesting to see where this ends up.  I predict 3 possible different scenarios:

  1. Yes comes together, stronger but under a ‘grass roots’ banner
  2. Yes comes together, weaker but under the SIC/SNP and Green banner
  3. Yes splits, weaker under a ‘grass roots’ and SIC/SNP and Green banner

We are Patriots first and Nationalists second!

It’s never really sat well with me how the mainstream media, union supporters and SNP opponents use the word nationalist when referring to Independence voters. It’s become a bit of a nick name with a negative connotation to it.

I understand that the SNP are the Scottish NATIONAL Party, however, I don’t like calling myself a nationalist. I much prefer calling myself a patriot. Continue reading
