ARE TORIES SCUM?

Labour have a long, long way to go before they extricate themselves from the backside of BritNat Unionism, but in this case we're supportive of Angela Rayner's use of the epithet scum to describe the Tories. Nye Bevan went even further and called them vermin.

Individual Tories may be nicer chaps or chappesses than other Tories, but collectively, they represent both old wealth...

Please vote in this online poll - and please note the question is 'Should Scotland be an independent country' - not 'should Scotland be Independent in the EU.'

Seven years since the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, have your views heard. Vote in our poll.

What an unhelpful picture.

And what an unhelpful series of EUphile articles in Saturday's National.

Looks like the indy movement - which is there to promote independence for Scotland - is being hijacked by some to promote the oxymoron that is independence in the EU.

Yet 38% of all Scots and 1 in 3 YES voters are EU sceptic.

How do the proponents of 'making Brexit the indy battleground'...

SCOTLAND NEEDS A PUBLICLY OWNED NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY CORPORATION NOW!

(please share across Yes parties and groups if you agree)

The SNP Government made a commitment to such a body being set up in 2017, and this platform praised them to the high hilt for doing so.

Just last weekend SNP and ALBA delegates at their party conferences showed there was much that both SNP and ALBA members agree...

Sleepy Gordon awakes once more to say 'Feck' to independence and claims England is more progressive and inclusive than Scotland.

Of course, that's why they keep voting for Tory Governments that represent the rich.

Brown seems to have forgotten the racist whispering campaign against himself when he was PM....and against Kinnock when he was leader of the opposition.

Inclusive? Yeah, if you have...

This platform has urged Scots to vote SNP at every Westminster election since 2007, and to give their first vote to the SNP at Holyrood over the same period.

We did not do so to see Scottish jobs, skills and capacity shipped abroad.

The SNP-Green coalition needs a rethink on their priorities and way of doing business.

ALBA conference voted at the weekend to replace the monarchy with an elected Head of State once the current Queen finishes (one way or another) in that role.

We think its a good thing that ALBA have taken that position.

But - regardless of party politics - what do you think about the role the monarchy should play in an indy Scotland -if any?

a) Should an indy Scotland scrap the monarchy...

NOW IS THE TIME...

FOR YES - IN ALL ITS FORMS AND DIVERSITY - TO TAKE TO THE STREETS OF THE TOWNS AND CITIES OF SCOTLAND.

TO PROCLAIM THAT INDEPENDENCE IS COMING

TO PROCLAIM THAT INDEPENDENCE IS NORMAL

TO PROCLAIM THAT INDEPENDENCE GIVES US THE CHANCE TO DECIDE OUR OWN FUTURE

TO PROCLAIM THAT INDEPENDENCE GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY.

NICOLA PROMISES ANNOUNCEMENT SOON ON INDYREF 2 PLANS

Let's hope so.

And let's hope the question put will be whether Scots want independence for Scotland, not 'independence in the EU' which is a conflation of two different and separate questions.

Of course, we look forward to any announcement from Nicola Sturgeon that concretises a definite plan for holding and winning a second indyref between...

YES - BUT NOBODY DIED IN THE SAME PERIOD

Which is the whole point of vaccination. Vaccination means we can ease lockdown. Infection rates will rise but the vaccination program means most will only have mild symptoms and a much smaller percentage of the population will be at high risk.

We now need to proceed to 100% or as close as possible vaccination across the whole population.

And those...

THERE HAS BEEN TOO MUCH HATE AND DIVISION RECENTLY WITHIN OUR GREAT YES FAMILY...WE NEED TO HEAL AND REUNITE IN ORDER TO WIN OUR GREAT AND COMMON GOAL.

Unity doesn't happen through enforced uniformity, or holding true to only one party line or another while dismissing other voices.

Independence in Scotland is a BROAD project. It needs a wide and diverse indy family both to sustain it, and to win...

Very sensible 'reach out' idea from SNP MP Joanna Cherry.

(It's also ALBA policy, we believe.)

We have always argued that it should be perfectly possible to respect trans rights and personal subjective gender identity while also protecting the hard won sex based rights of women and free speech on the philosophical and scientific issues related to the reality of evolved human biological identity....

Blair - and the West's political approach over decades - has been the problem, not the solution across the Middle East.

We hold no truck with the Taliban or any other form of patriarchal/clerical religious extremism in any part of the world.

But Tasmina is broadly right in this article - the iilegal, immoral and misdirected wars of post 9/11 have only acted as recruiting sergeants for Islamic...

SNP-GREEN GOVERNMENT DEAL PLEDGES INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM ' WITHIN 5 YEARS.'

Why are we waiting?

When did Both Votes SNP, or SNP 1 Green 2 for an indyref as soon as the covid crisis was over, become 'within 5 years'?

Where is the sense of urgency as Scotland's public services, social fabric and economy continues to be whittled away by the Westminster Tories?

No wonder we are falling behind in...

Would SNP members welcome a vote on any deal on getting into bed with the Greens?

It would be interesting to know what rank and file members feel about bringing a party into government who wants to bury Scotland's oil and gas resources, rather than use them to fund the transition to a new deal hi-tech net zero sustainable Scotland?

(No revenues from oil and gas mean that ordinary taxpayes will...

Absolutely agree with the sentiments of this meme.

If we are to save the planet and its people from the ravages of global warming and climate change we cannot do so on the basis of an economic system based on profit and exploitation.

If you agree, please share.
