From Alasdair Galloway: The previous section I think showed that Angus McNeill is absolutely right to say that if the Supreme Court can strike down these two Bills, they can strike down a Referendum Bill as well. So what does the Scottish Government say? Their “THE ROAD TO A REFERENDUM THAT IS BEYOND LEGAL CHALLENGE” concludes with this paragraph “10. In these circumstances, in which there...

From Alasdair Galloway: The main site of dispute in this week’s judgement, is Section 28(7) of the Scotland Act, which deals with Holyrood’s powers to pass legislation. For completeness I will include it all “28 Acts of the Scottish Parliament. (1) Subject to section 29, the Parliament may make laws, to be known as Acts of the Scottish Parliament. (2) Proposed Acts of the Scottish Parliament...

Some of you reading this will have heard of The Hub - perhaps even used it - however a lot of people will be unfamiliar of what it is and why you should be using it. Put simply - The Hub is a social media platform, dedicated to Scottish Independence.… Continue Reading Campaigning With The Hub

Constitution for Scotland

Grassroots Opinion – It’s our Constitution

SELF-GOVERNANCE IS NORMAL: it’s about being in charge of how we live, so we can better face the challenges and maximise the opportunities for future generations. It provides the opportunity to make the changes needed to enable improvements in our economy, pensions, public, social and care services, national...

'What the Offord Affair shows is that Britain is truly bankrupt, just not in the way his hysterical paper suggested.
The state of sleaze now has an oddly precise figure. Want a seat in government? That'll cost you £147,500.'
Mike Small, via Bella Caledonia

It’s routine and monotonous to write about and point at corruption in British politics. It’s become mundane to experience astonishing...

In August 2021, NHS Scotland’s A&E department’s saw 77.8% within 4 hours. In the same period, NHS England saw, on average, only 66.2% and NHS Wales saw only 60.1%. NHS Scotland is thus 17.5% faster (11.6% of 66.2) than England and 26.5% faster than Wales. The real gap with England is probably even greater as NHS England cheats. NHS England starts the clock again after patients...

So there are still a handful more results to come this week from the Scot Goes Pop / Panelbase poll - starting with Scottish voting intentions for the next Westminster election. Obviously Westminster is not the most pressing concern at the moment, because no UK general election is due until 2024 (and if Alba have their way, Scotland will be independent before then in any case). However, these...

What utter gibberish. Scotland is not a state or a region. The UK is not a country. The comparisons he makes are nonsense. Apples and oranges stuff.

Also, the Act of Union can not be ripped up and a new law imposed on Scotland without our consent.

A really good thread about the myth surrounding Scotland getting into the EU with a large deficit.

The deficit doesn't stop you getting into the EU at all!

As more revelations come to light concerning Boris Johnson how long will it be until something sticks to the Teflon PM? We also look at the continuing Holyrood elections campaign, Arlene Foster's resignation, growing interest in Scottish independence in England, and a new group promoting Scotland's membership of the EU.

Currency is a topic often debated when considering Scottish independence. This article does not discuss what currency option would be best but instead considers the experience of other nations creating a new currency. Therefore, we answer the questions many undecided voters have: Would Scotland be able to create its own currency? How difficult would that […]The post How would an independent...
