Laughable that Ruth Davidson thinks school leavers who have had future prospects decimated by Brexit will somehow become more Unionist the moment they start paying into a pension.

I really don't get why news media keeps asking people "does SNP have a mandate?". They do. It's not a conundrum that needs solved. Arithmetic did it for us. 

No "ah, but[s]..." can change this. It is what it is.

The news is casting doubts instead of reporting facts.

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

@FullerScot I'm with you Stephen. It's a far cry from 2014. I totally get the frustration Alba members have. But there needs to be a far better outlet than raging at folk on Twitter.

Same goes for SNP members who are angry at people leaving their party and claiming it "splits" the vote etc. etc.

Are there plans for Alba to start doing their own marches, for example?

(btw, I note The Hub hasn't pulled through your websites newsfeed, I'm working on it!)

@Murchie I don't see Alba holding thier own separate marches, the way I see it this would still be under a YES banner with those from all or no political parties. That is the way it should be, the independence movement coming together and mingling for a common cause with all other differences put aside.

I like Alba. I genuinely do. I like their clear message that there needs to be urgency surrounding holding another independence referendum.

But their members on Twitter are just far too angry at other folk (especially existing SNP members). It puts people like myself off becoming a member.

From the Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights: The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an international human rights treaty which sets out the rights every child has. The UK ratified the UNCRC in 1991 but it has not yet been made part of domestic law. This means that many of the protections contained within it are not accessible to children and young people...

I normally pride myself on staying on top of all the Scottish polls that are released, but today brought word of another #Matchettgate-style episode, with the Hanbury polling numbers reported by the Sunday Times at the weekend turning out to be wrong - and I was like: "what Hanbury polling numbers reported by the Sunday Times?"  The story must have flown completely under my radar.  What...

Some people are damaging the independence cause for the next 5 years, just because they don't believe we'll have a referendum within 1 year. It's madness.
