The ‘slow death of proper journalistic inquiry into many aspects of Scottish life’ of which Ian Jack complains is something many of us have been watching for the past few decades. That’s nothing new. But now we have tools to democratise information media, and that’s what we’re going to do.

Peter A Bell: The Cybernat Diversion

Peter A Bell: The Cybernat Diversion | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"The days when Better Together could take victory for granted are a fading memory. The anti-independence campaign's early assumption that it need do no more than flaunt its lead in the polls and mock the chances of a Yes vote look pretty ridiculous now. But the truth is that, in the beginning, that was all they had. Project Fear was cobbled together later and with it the scare mongering script that has been repeated ever since."

The Referendum will not be televised.

The Referendum will not be televised. | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"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."

The visceral hatred of Westminister politics | Snowblog | Snowblog | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"For some, voting Yes is a long deep seated desire for an independent Scotland. But for far more it seems to be a relatively recent desire to have nothing to do with what so many spoke of as “the sleaze, dishonesty, and self-serving London-centric politics of Westminster".

Scottish Government examining own high-speed rail link says Salmond | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"It's time to take positive action. I can confirm today that the Scottish Government will build on the joint work we are undertaking with the UK Government. We will establish a feasibility study to explore in detail the options for building high speed rail from Scotland to England. In doing so, we will work closely with partners across the UK, especially in the north of England. Of course we can't determine the route, until we undertake the feasibility study. But it is a statement of intent. "

Kevin McKenna, a Scot so fond of England he has occasionally been moved to support its football team, canvasses opinion from Manchester to London on the bid to go it alone (So what do the English think of Scottish independence?
Stevie Mach's insight:

""Standards have slipped in every sector of this land and our society is rotten," he adds. "London is sucking the life out of the rest of us. My hope is that if Scotland votes for independence that it will be a great example for the rest of England that exists outside London. Best of luck to you." -(article)

Labour peer Robertson says No to Scotland but Yes to Russia in NATO

Labour peer Robertson says No to Scotland but Yes to Russia in NATO | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

"Lord Robertson found himself at the centre of a row just over one week ago when, speaking at the Brookings Institute in America, the Labour peer told an audience that Scottish independence would lead to a breakdown of western civilisation.

The United Kingdom’s enemies would "cheer loudest" and "the forces of darkness would simply love it", claimed Robertson before adding that "the dictators, the persecutors, the oppressors, the annexers, the aggressors and the adventurers around the planet" would see such a move as a victory.

His calls for Russia to be invited to join NATO whilst appearing to suggest his own country should be blocked will puzzle some observers given Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine and Scotland’s strategic location with regards the North Atlantic."

“This power outage was a warning from the forces of space darkness that separation will lead to the annihilation of all Scots by phaser fire and photon torpedoes.

"A vote for separation will leave Scotlandshire alone and friendless in a hostile universe. As I have pointed out before, leaving the UK would mean leaving the United Federation of planets."

Poll shows Yes boost as SNP remain party of choice | Scottish National Party | Independence for Scotland, It's Coming Soon! | Scoop.it

“With just one MP in Scotland, the Tories have no mandate here. And yet people across Scotland are paying a huge price at the hands of a Tory-Lib Dem Government that they did not elect.

“Only a Yes vote in September will put an end to the democratic deficit we face under Westminster rule. And only independence can ensure that Scotland gets the government it votes for – every time.

“With recent polls showing support for Yes at new highs, more and more people are realising that Scotland’s future is an independent one.” - Nicola Sturgeon
