"Something exciting IS happening in Scotland. Up and down this country there are YES groups springing up. YES stalls, YES canvassers, YES newspapers, YES meetings packed-to-the-rafters with people of all ages eager to hear the cases for a better future. Artists, writers and musicians are digging into their Scottish roots to mould new and exciting projects that embrace the multi-faceted notions of ‘Scottishness’ that are so often overlooked.
In my lifetime I have never seen, heard or felt anything that comes remotely close to what the referendum has awoken. The populous is becoming politically active but leaving the politicians and the media pundits behind."
