Jim Arnott's insight:

Here at last is some objective analysis of the future of North Sea Oil investment and production. It rather effectively counters the doom, gloom and scaremongering of the UK Government in its attempt to scare the good people of Scotland from voting Yes in next years Referendum on independence for Scotland.

The deconstructed Lamont

The deconstructed Lamont | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it

A few days ago, our mole in Scottish Labour HQ sent us the first draft of Johann Lamont’s speech to the Scottish Labour conference. Oddly, a few lines seem to have gone missing from the version delivered to the hall yesterday afternoon.


Via Peter A Bell
Jim Arnott's insight:

I said on Saturday as I listened to the speech that it would have graced The Glasgow Pavillion as a top comedy show. Reading this deconstruction of Lamont's speech I think it more appropriate to liken it to a comic-tragedy at the Citizens.

How Scottish trade unions are shifting in favour of independence

How Scottish trade unions are shifting in favour of independence | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it
The SNP could use Labour’s promise to maintain coalition austerity policies as a way of opening the door to the unions.
Jim Arnott's insight:

An interesting and informative article. The Scottish trade union movement will need to forget about tribal loyalties and start thinking about what is best for their members in Scotland. The debate has to be about the future of Scotland and what will be best for the future generations.

 

We certainly need more balanced articles like this one in order to inform the debate.

Jim Arnott's insight:

Isn't it always interesting that when unionists refer to North Sea Oil it is a UK asset and when they referred to banks they are a Scottish liability. This article exposes the bias inherent in the BBC including the BBC in Scotland (as its official title is).

 

Most oil experts acknowledge that at least 90%of North Sea Oil will, under international maritime law, accrue to Scotland. Don't be in any doubt why the UK government at Westminster are fighting tooth and nail to denie Scotland its independence.

Jim Arnott's insight:

An excellent analysis Peter of the desperation of the Better Together campaign and the parties associated with it. I am finding that more and more Scots are starting to question the scare stories and the lies and deceptions of the unionist parties and, in my opinion, this questioning of the motives of the unionists will only increase from now until 18/09/2014.

Jim Arnott's insight:

I posted this page on my blog SayYes2Scotland.com to show how I convinced myself that Scotland would be considerably wealthier in terms of GDP per capita when it gains independence. The information is from The World Bank with my assessment of where Scotland would be assuming it gets a geographical share of North Dea Oil.

 

It demonstrates why the UK government is so keen to hang on to Scotland's oil.

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.


Via Peter A Bell
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.

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.
Jim Arnott's comment, April 1, 2013 11:23 AM
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.

Via Peter A Bell
Jim Arnott's insight:

Scotland will be punished severely if we dare to vote Yes in 2014. We will be punished for daring to have a just and fair society that includes free tuition fees, free prescriptions, free bus passes and free personal care for the elderly. The Unionists dare not show their hand before the Referendum in 2015 - but just wait and see what the Westminster parties have in their manifestos for the 2015 Westminster election. The Scottish Block Grant will be slashed. Scots must be aware that by 2015 it will be too late to do anything about it.

 

The only thing you CAN do is vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.
