Lamont income-tax plans in shreds as UK party refuses to back proposals | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it

Plans by Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont for full control over income tax to be devolved to the Scottish parliament appear to lie in tatters today after reports claimed her UK leader Ed Miliband is set to distance himself from the proposals.

Spectre of 1979 returns to haunt No campaign | Scottish National Party | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it

In a key week in the referendum debate, the Westminster Government’s actions have demonstrated that the only way for Scotland to achieve the powers needed to build a strong economy and fair society is with a Yes vote in next year’s independence referendum.

Jim Arnott's insight:

For those who are  too young to remeber 1979 (or those with selective memory) we were cheated. The unionists in so many ways are up to the same tricks they used in the 1979 Referendum. Please make sure we are not cheated again.

 

Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.

1973 defence jobs promised to Glasgow,and when the SNP were promised lots of jobs but there was 11 SNP MP,s,a general election was held and the SNP got reduced to 3,and the jobs got reduced 0,cheated time after time why is there still some daft enough to trust Westminster.

That's a great question, Charles. Why are there so many daft enough to trust Westminster. I don't think they are daft - just brainwashed by all the Westminster/Better Together scaremongering, lies and misinformation. But that will change. Folk can only take so much negativity till they start looking for the positive vision of a prosperous independent Scotland.
