Scotland must be guided by a clear and realistic assessment of the security challenges it might face as an independent state. This is not only important in choosing the basic structures and the resources required to address risks, it is also essential to have clarity on this for the process of negotiations with the rest of the UK (rUK) – England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Decisions about...

We still had some names and contact numbers from other Yes groups, left over from the 2014 referendum. Word spread around, as it does. So we had more than 30 delegates attending the first meeting on August 6, 2016, in the Spectrum Centre in Inverness. Groups came from the...
