Peter A Bell's comment, October 5, 2012 3:49 AM
Somehow, Rob Gibson doesn't come across as being quite as furious as Robbie Dinwoodie would have us believe. While this is unquestionably a serious issue, there has been a certain element of comedy as we watch journalists flailing around trying to sensationalise things in their usual half-arsed fashion. Meanwhile, the SNP calmly gets on with what is, after all, no more than a perfectly normal internal policy debate.

Scottish writers, indeed. In a country called Scotland. Whatever next? And, of course, the home-grown product is 'dire'. We ought to know our place: we should have stuck with 'Palgrave's Golden Treasury'.

Frankly: Habitat - the Ecopolitical Nation | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

"Catalonia, Scotland, Quebec, Flanders and the Basque Country may soon be sovereign and independent states, if their populations choose to endeavour to maintain and increase their prosperity as interdependent sovereign nations rather than suffer loss of prosperity and social-democratic welfare-state provision while the old state constructs in which they have been incorporated lose cohesion and decline. The process of breaking up the large dysfunctional Western states into ecologically and socially meaningful political communities may have just started and could lead to a more democratic and sustainable world system."

It even happened in Bath. Even in one of the richest corners of Britain – a city so posh that it refused a local organic dairy farm permission to open a boutique ice-cream concession in its expensive new shopping area in case it “lowered the tone” – there was an Occupy protest. A couple of dozen tents huddled together in Queen Square, a small green space in the middle of a busy traffic junction that’s more accustomed to hosting farmers’ markets and games of boules.

 

The SNP government is ending the right to buy, and also greatly increasing the building of new social housing. Unlike the British, we still have a choice. But time is running out.
