WHY ARTISTS WILL VOTE YES

WHY ARTISTS WILL VOTE YES | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it

It should come as no surprise that most Scottish artists that express an opinion on Scottish independence are Yes supporters. Artists are so often at the forefront of political engagement and their job is to offer an interpretation of our everyday experience with their imagination and creativity. A new nation, uncharted, and ours to build, is something that is therefore immediately attractive to the artist, and the many possibilities it presents an obvious opportunity.

The Independent Labour's secrecy over Falkirk 'scandal' a gift to the SNP The Independent Carnage, the end of dreams and a return to the status quo: ask around in central Scotland about the Battle of Falkirk, and those who know say there's not much...
Jim Arnott's insight:
The Independent article exposes the inefficiency of the Labour Party in conducting a thorough investigation of the Falkirk Fiasco. It also exposes the extremely weak leadership of Ed Milliband and the non-existent leadership of Johan Lamont. It is resulting in more ordinary Scottish Labour supporters and activists turning to Scottish independence as the only way to regain a Scottish Labour movement.

Jim Arnott's insight:

Everybody in Scotland who is undecided and hasn't yet made up their mind should read this whole article. For me the most important point regarding information is please ignore the information presented on the TV (especially the BBC) and in the newspapers and get your information from the many online sites available on the internet. The above applies just as much to No's as it does to "undecideds"
