I’m sure you are all aware of the momentous decision taken yesterday by the Scottish Parliament on their motion to NOT agree to the EU Withdrawal Bill at Westminster and to withhold consent. The SNP, Labour, Lib Dems and Greens all voted to withhold consent, leaving the Tories isolated and in effect, against Scotland, her… Read More And So It Begins…
For the first time yesterday I read the McCrone Report (I know, I should have read it sooner). As I read it, I could feel myself becoming pretty angry at it.
For some time I have felt that the Brexit vote is being used as a proxy to take momentum away from Scotland’s independence movement. Some of you may agree, so of you may not. It’s difficult for me to describe exactly why I believe that is the case without much verifiable information, but I shall… Read More Brexit – The Scottish Independence Deception!
It’s not often headlines grab my attention and take me aback. Like many of you in Scotland you will have seen them all and most do not surprise you, however, they will, like me, make you laugh!

Follow @BlogAlba So whilst ‘Yes’ is in a state with itself and risking a fracture, the UK Government is well and truly already there. What surprises me about ‘Yes’ is that it’s not focussing on what it should be. It should be shouting at every opportunity the continual mess that Brexit has become.
