The First Minister’s speech has shown that the last few months have transformed him into a man with courage and vision rarely seen in UK politics, says Matt Qvortrup

Jim Arnott's insight:

Excellent assessment of the talents of Scotland's First Minister. In this case the comments section is best avoided - just rabid unionistas who cannot bring themselves to acknowledge the superb talents of Alex Salmond

Why are some folk so eager to buy into the mainstream media's new trend of 'we don't like Alex Salmond' or the SNP when they have delivered so much more for Scotland than anyone or any party has done in a long long time?

Peter A Bell: Looking behind the polls

Peter A Bell: Looking behind the polls | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it

I don't often comment on polls. I find it a bit of a pointless exercise. Such comments as I see on independence referendum-related polling usually fall into two categories. There's the endlessly analytical poring over the minutiae of the data that looks like a hell of a lot of work only to be rendered irrelevant by the next poll that comes along. Or, more commonly, there's the simplistic acceptance of the headline figures as if they represent a definitive forecast of the result of a referendum that is still eleven months away. Polls can tell us nothing about the result. At best, they might offer some clues as to trends and thus serve as a rough gauge of how the two campaigns are faring.

Earlier this year, the Icelandic Review of Politics and Administration published a paper looking at the implications of Scottish independence for Scotland, the rUK and the rest of NATO. An alert reader sent it to us a while ago and we’ve just got round to reading it all the way through. (It’s a modest 16 pages, but hey, we’re pretty busy.)

The new shadow work and pensions minister has said in her first interview that Labour will be tougher on welfare than the Conservatives.

Jim Arnott's insight:

Labour say that they will be tougher on welfare than the Tories. If you believe Scotland should be a more just society you only have one option of achieving this:
