Scotland's GDP in 2021 is estimated to be £180.7 billion in total, or £32,974 ($39,000) per person. On day one of independence, this would make Scotland richer than Italy & Spain and just behind Japan. We would be twice as rich as Hungary, Poland and Croatia and three times richer than China (source). This is not the… Continue Reading Believe In: Our Resources
When you ask people about what Scotland has given the world, they will more often than not reply "TV" and "penicillin". What's incredible about our country is that our citizens didn't just invent two things that completely revolutionized the world. Scotland invented the modern world. Botanists, geologists, mathematicians, scientists, engineers, zoologists,… Continue Reading Believe In: Our...
With the Cost of Living crisis biting hard on all of us, I have had to look again at the way The Hub is financed. Rising server costs and the price of third-party scripts that The Hub needs to function mean that it is getting harder to keep the apps… Continue Reading Adverts On The Hub
I have been informed I am facing possible redundancy from my job.

It is not an understatement to say that this may directly affect my ability to keep The Hub operating.

If you can, please consider donating to my Patreon to keep it online!
There has been a lot of talk in the media and social media about Scottish Independence & pensions. As usual, the anti-independence argument boils down to threats that rUK will act like a petulant child and refuse to honour National Insurance Contributions, leaving our pensioners with nothing to show for… Continue Reading Scottish Independence & Pensions

A couple of weeks ago, I released a scaled back version of The Hub on Wear OS devices that allowed you to scroll through a list of upcoming events. Since then, I have been looking to see if there was anything else on The Hub that would lend itself well… Continue Reading The Hub On Wear OS – Updated
The Hub really comes into its own when it comes to listing events that the Yes movement are taking part in. The app recently added its 2,000th event to the database, an incredible achievement and that's without holding a proper independence referendum campaign yet. I'm always interested in finding new… Continue Reading The Hub On Wear OS

My concern is that visitors to The Hub may be subjected to content… Continue Reading Changes To Acceptable Group Content
A very long time ago when I first had the idea for The Hub, I made the decision that it should be a place to hear both sides of the argument. I wanted visitors to read from both sides before deciding which way they would vote in a future referendum… Continue Reading A Pro-Independence App For Pro-Independence Content

Over 30 minutes, we discussed how The Hub was created, what features it contains & how useful it is to campaigners. As always, there… Continue Reading Watch Again: Yes Corner No. 7
