IT'S been a historic day in Scottish politics. The nature of the United Kingdom as a voluntary union has been shown to be a myth. It is nothing…

'Surely we have to exhaust every internal legal, democratic avenue whilst identifying and recording more evidence of the anti-democratic, democracy-denying barriers put up to stymie us.'
National reader Selma Rahman.

I’LL stick my colours to the mast, right from the start. I plan to be at Holyrood Wednesday for the rally. I hope to be joined by many, many…

'Devolution was sold to Scotland as the great unionist alternative to independence, but the anti-independence media is failing to protect it.
That failure contains the seeds of their own undoing.'

So now we know - Wednesday 23 November is 'Supreme Court Day'.
That evening there'll be a big rally in Edinburgh, and various local events around Scotland.
The Perth event will be at Concert Hall Plaza from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Whatever the Supreme Court decides, we'll have something to say about it - and it'll move the campaign on to the next stage. Come and make your voice heard.

Mhairi Black, via The National.

SOMETIMES – and by that, I mean all the time – my columns for The National are gloomy. I write about the searing injustice being inflicted on…

An indefatigable campaigner for independence who'll be much missed. Our sympathies to his family and friends.
Here's Lesley Riddoch's tribute to him in The National.

WHAT can you say about Mike Blackshaw – founder of the Edinburgh Yes Hub who died earlier this week? ...

Scotland needs to get out.'
