" As he was almost within striking distance, something changed in her expression, a note of caution she felt, or something she noticed, a warning from a tingling sense that something was not right with this stranger coming towards her, at this time of night, in this way, in this location. It was too late. He swung the hammer, struck her above the right eye, she fell like a stone, no time to cry out, or raise an arm in defence..."

Silly Season Almost Over

Silly Season Almost Over | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

We’ve had scare after scare – the banks are leaving, all the supermarket prices are going up, mobile phone charges will increase, the English will put a 5-mile high net across the border to stop any migratory birds flying south for the winter…

Mind you, even I didn’t think they’d wheel David Beckham out!

Well that’s me convinced.  Any time I’ve been faced with any kind of major decision in my life I’ve always thought, “What would Beckham do?”

Irvine Welsh: Scotland Has Already Dealt the UK Elite a Crushing Defeat | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

Whether the result is YES or NO, it’s that turbulent, quarrelsome, compassionate minority, the Scots themselves, who have—quite astonishingly—won the day. At 97% voter registration, unprecedented in the Western World, they have shown that a G7 power state, mired in a neo-liberal model of globalization, can be challenged, even broken up, and a vibrant, non-militaristic democracy established. This amazing country has, to its own great surprise, lit a torch of freedom that will burn across the world.

"On 18 September 2014, between the hours of 7am and 10pm, absolute power will lie in the hands of the Scottish people. They have to decide whether to keep it, or give it away to where their minority status makes them permanently powerless and vulnerable." - Jim Sillars.

"I have a near completed novel entitled Punisher, which I am doing the final proof reading for at the moment, and I hope will be published in November (2014). I also have seventy pages of another novel which I began last year, and left, but now will be in a position shortly to restart and work on to completion. Time is always in short supply, so sometimes works have to be put aside for a while. There are a dozen new and exciting projects I have lined up though, just waiting for their slot in my timeline."

SNP Membership Now at 100,000 Members!

SNP Membership Now at 100,000 Members! | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it
With Labour supporters burning their cards and the SNP's membership rising exponentially, i think it is time that the press evaluated their response. The backlash from this could be immense in Scotland and would not be unjustified. In fact it appears that indyref has strengthened the SNP rather than weakened it. Labour are seen as traitors because they stood shoulder to shoulder with the Conservatives and the right wing press has ben vilified.

Scotland had the chance yesterday to take control of its own destiny, and despite over 1.6 million voters choosing the YES option on the ballot paper for independence, 2.0 million Scots opted to remain in the union with the UK. Did those 2.0 million vote for more austerity, budget cuts, benefit cuts, a privatised NHS and tuition fees in Scotland. I think most did not...

To my friends in Labour

To my friends in Labour | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"Now we have foodbanks and corporate bail-outs. We have unions which are emasculated. We have a media that’s out of control. We have multinational companies devaluing labour with the obscenity of zero-hour contracts. We have private utilities forcing people to choose between heating and eating. We’re pro-nuclear, itching to spend more on useless imperial status symbols. Is that your Labour Party?

Now it wants you to vote against a change that cuts Westminster adrift at last, that transforms our national life, that gives us a legitimate chance at utilising our strengths and talents and building a country that not only restores democracy and hope to its citizens but one that can serve as a beacon of light to those across the border who feel disengaged and cut loose.

Are you really going to spend the next seven days – the most important of your life – campaigning alongside the enemy, scaring people, crushing optimism and hope for the future, to sell a bill of goods you know is faulty in an act of emotional self-harm which will haunt your soul until the day you die?"

They’re a bit late to the party, the neighbours have been complaining about the noise, a lot of people have already left and most of the sausage rolls are gone, but welcome!"

England the Brave | George Monbiot | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"So now Better Together has brought in Gordon Brown, scattering bribes in a desperate, last-ditch effort at containment. They must hope the Scots have forgotten that he boasted of setting “the lowest rate in the history of British corporation tax, the lowest rate of any major country in Europe and the lowest rate of any major industrialised country anywhere”(6). That he pledged to the City of London “in budget after budget I want us to do even more to encourage the risk takers”(7). That, after 13 years of Labour government, the UK had higher levels of inequality than after 18 years of Tory government(8). That his government colluded in kidnapping and torture(9). That he helped cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands through his support for the illegal war on Iraq."
