Very inspiring to visit the Yes Hub in Dunfermline today. A fantastic resource for the local Yes movement.
Recently the British Nationalists regained control of North Lanarkshire Council.

NLC have now suspended a teacher for holding a discussion on why the coverage of the queen's funeral was one-sided and failed to allow dissenting voices.

George Carlin once said:
“Don’t just teach your children to read…
Teach them to question what they read.
Teach them to question everything.”

George Carlin...
While we have been silenced because "now is not the time" to discuss independence or whether to ditch the monarchy, the monarchy has already carried out a " seamless succession".

It's business as usual for them.

They take us for mugs, because we stupidly buy into this charade.
With the general state of mind of the UK at the present time this was sadly expected. We have already seen multiple arrests over the proclamation of the new king.

Anti-UK and anti-monarchy sentiment will not be tolerated.

Hope over Fear's Yestival takes place next Sunday in Glasgow and it will mark 8 years of lost opportunity since 2014.
Now IS the time for #independence for Scotland.
Remember being told we were better together under the "broad shoulders" of the UK?
How's that working out for you?
The UK Government "energy watchdog" has authorised an average £1,971 rise in household bills from the start of October.

Still getting that warm, fuzzy 'Better Together' feeling?

Us neither.
"Pooling and sharing" is how the British Nationalists in Scotland describe the UK's theft of Scottish resources.

Scotland has a wealth of natural resources.

We were told in 2014 that our oil would be run out in 5 years. It didn't - and our oil wealth is what is keeping the English economy afloat post Brexit.

Scotland's whisky generated £4.5 Billion for the London exchequer in 2021.

Our good friend Grouse Beater has written a review of Ron Culley's latest book "Firebrand", which investigates the assassination of Willie MacRae.
A nasty lesson in British colonial control.

How come Scots are so competent and wonderful at running projects across the world, but then are incapable of running their own country?' asks Grouse Beater

An Evening with Gareth Wardell (Grouse Beater).
Part 2. Audience Q&A.
Queen Elizabeth will receive an inflation-defying “bonus” of nearly £30m from the public purse over the next two years thanks to an obscure rule which means her income cannot go down.

It's time for this to end.

It's time Scotland became a republic, like Germany or France.

Make Elizabeth the last. Vote for independence.

Income used by the Treasury to fund the...
There seems to be a new Brexit Bonus every other day!

The ETIAS visa waiver scheme is expected to be launched in May 2023.
