Is The Tide Turning Towards Independence?

Is the tide turning towards independence? The way to look at it is this. The vote in 2014 was a half and half split given that YES was leading and only swung back in the last week with ‘The Vow’ and various other breaches of purdah. Many Scots were taken to manager’s meetings where they […]

#ScotRef: Westminster using Brexit to close the door on Scottish independence

The mainstream media have had a field day this week. The reason, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s journey around the USA and in particular her appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, they seemed to have missed the point entirely however, but hey, what is new?
