The personal consequences of Brexit. Danish Lene moves back home after 33 years.

I’m desperately sad to see my long term Danish friend Lene Kruhoffer reluctantly abandon her adopted Scotland after 33 years.

I have known Lene for about half of that time and attended Napier University in Edinburgh […]

“Great” Repeal Bill is Constitutional Vandalism Providing Irrefutable Grounds for Immediately Calling an Independence Referendum

By Dr Mark McNaught In retrospect, the ‘Great’ Repeal Bill (GRB) for Scots may turn out to be historically analogous to the 2010 Ruling of the Spanish Constitutional Tribunal over the Catalan Statute of Autonomy. Both of these acts constitute a revocation of many hard-won devolved powers. Both shall have dissolved the brittle consensus over […]

May, Sturgeon and the Treacherous Tory Trap

Confidence trickster Theresa May is attempting to lure Nicola Sturgeon into blocking a second referendum on independence.  Given the historically contemptuous attitude by unionist parties towards Scotland, it will shock very few that Theresa May is laying a devious political trap for Scotland’s First Minister by offering to include her in all aspects of the […]
