God Bless You Please, Ms Sturgeon?

God Bless You Please, Ms Sturgeon?

Leaving The Left

Leaving The Left

Why I left the modern Scottish left (and don’t worry, I’m not a right-winger nor a Tory nor a Unionist nor a member of the far right)

IndyRef2? Why I Cannot Vote Yes (again)

“..for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself. .”

 

So assert those who signed the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320. A document that alongside Magna Carta is said to have influenced the founding fathers of America and their constitution.
