It’s very early and, obviously every commentator would disagree, and non-commentators, presumably too, would join them, but apart from the cliche that ‘this is Theresa May’s election to lose’ thrown out to make what appears to be a certainty actually dubious enough to spend hundreds of hours discussing it on TV, radio, internet and so […]
Before starting I’d like you to look at the above image. No one knows exactly what reality really is. Is it possible we’ve come the closest we’ll ever come in our lifetimes to an independent Scotland? Can we go further? This article is premised on the assumption that there are still opportunities to gain independence […]
Liverpool Football Club should be a warning to the YES campaign. You do not lift the trophy until you lift the trophy. Up until yesterday, Liverpool had that English Premier League title in the bag. Now it is once again Manchester City’s to lose. The YES campaign has done well. What has done even better […]
Dear Editor Your correspondent Mr Hall complains the Yes East Lothian meeting he attended last month was not a debate .The reason is simple, it wasn’t intended or advertised as a Yes/No debate. What was remarkable about the Haddington Town Hall meeting which 180 attended, was the different backgrounds, perspectives and positive visions of independence […]

The head of BP, Bod Dudley, has intervened in the independence debate. He believes that there will be great ‘uncertainties’ about the future of an independent Scotland, citing the issues surrounding a new tax regime, the currency and whether or not an independent Scotland could be part of Europe. Although, predictably, London Scot and Better […]
One of the more undistinguished members of the New Labour cabinet was George Robertson, now a peer. He was quickly moved from his cabinet post as Minister of Defence to the head of NATO. Given that this position is titular: no one is seriously going to wait for Robertson’s approval before doing anything, then he […]
The polls are becoming more volatile. There seem to be shifts one way, then another. ‘Deeper’ polling is producing surprising answers that appear to contradict the ‘superficial’ polls of a by-election. Of course, some media outlets with their own agenda further confuse the issue with ridiculously unscientific polls that support the line they are pedalling […]
…it is an irony that it does not have its own fully functioning democracy for itself. Democracy was founded by the Ancient Greeks in the city state of Athens. After driving out the Athenian King, the Athenian people created a unique form of direct democracy. People voted on policies and leaders. The people were the […]
