Some of you will know that I recently travelled to the Norwegian Arctic Circle, at 70° N, the furthest north I have been and only 1,400 miles from the geographic North Pole. It was a beautiful country, and notably similar in landscape to Scotland, except for the sun not setting at night, and the May… Read More Scotland’s Nordic Blueprint
Below is the typed out full version of the McCrone Report as released under a FOI request in 2010. I have highlighted areas in orange that are important and illustrate the nature of the report and actions taken to mitigate them against Scotland finding out the truth.
