Stevie Mach's insight:

Aren't you sick of hearing all the 'jam tomorrow' promises from Westminster. Blue Tory and Red Tory, time to panic, we're taking a sharp exit on the referendum YES bus to a future where we can make our own jam to our own recipe. It will taste so much sweeter.

Do you realise just how foolish the UK looks? | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

Do you realise just how foolish the UK looks? You strut like a world power and have a navy with a huge aircraft carrier and no planes to land on it. We laugh at you with the rest of the world, but at the same time we remember that a quarter of our population lives in poverty; and all you can promise us if we vote for you is more poverty for this rich country of Scotland.

"Westminster’s privatisation of England’s health service could see NHS England effectively broken up within a decade, according to Labour in England, with the prospect of patient charges replacing public funds. And funding is already being squeezed as the Westminster government shrinks the public sector, according to Labour in Wales."

"We need a Yes to protect public services from damaging Westminster cuts."

Suzanne Moore: First thoughts: With its independence vote Scotland is able to ask big questions about its destiny. I have no idea what that feels like
Stevie Mach's insight:

"The best debates about Scottish independence have asked big questions and often there are no easy answers. There is a truthfulness in that. Imagine if England could ask the same questions of itself instead of assuming that all was settled long ago. Imagine if we could do this without ceding to Ukip-style regression.

Scotland will do whatever it does. As I watch from afar, I can’t help thinking for us English, chance would be a fine thing." - Time to take our chance, time for a YES vote.

With ten days to go, I'm more positive now than I've been over the past two years that Scotland will do it. Scotland will become an independent country, the people of Scotland will vote to take their destiny in their own hands and vote YES. The people of Scotland will believe in themselves, believe it is their time, their moment, and seize it with both hands.
