Scotland has identified clear priorities in health and measures them – why can’t we?

What is it about Scotland that enables it to do this, while we can’t seem to do the same thing in Ontario?

COMMENT: Ed wants One Nation… but not for disabled people | Disability News Service

It’s lovely that the media enjoyed Ed Miliband’s speech to the Labour conference. And his ability to memorise a speech, wave his hands, and walk around a stage at the same time without needing to check his notes for directions.

“Spectacular”, a presentational “triumph”, “confident”, “fluent”, and “humorously conversational”. The “speech of his life”, according to another commentator.

But the danger of getting caught up in this drenching wave of adulation is that viewers and readers ignore his latest shameful – but oh-so-subtle – attack on disabled people.

One nation, Scotland, is being taken for granted | Herald Scotland | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

Ed Miliband borrowed the tailcoat of Benjamin Disraeli this week to pronounce his faith in "one nation". Constitutional pedants (like me) might have pointed out that there are actually two nations in the United Kingdom, Scotland and England. Oh, and one of them might be about to leave.

"Although Catalan affairs are very rarely even alluded to in the anglo-media in the normal course of events, Scottish affairs are routinely followed closely in Catalonia and the Basque Country, whose public broadcasting systems are constituted in such a way as to be more disposed to permit such coverage than is, for example, the rigidly anglocentric BBC"

Eddie Barnes: Whitehall is leaping into action after finally turning its attention to Scotland - News - Scotsman.com

Eddie Barnes: Whitehall is leaping into action after finally turning its attention to Scotland - News - Scotsman.com | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it
THANKS in part to the fact that the London media has (understandably) not yet focused on the independence referendum, a revolution in Whitehall on the subject of Scotland has gone largely unnoticed in these last few months.

 

So the question facing Whitehall elites is whether their attention will be fleeting and finished the moment that the referendum is over (if they win), or whether they might take the chance to have a more fundamental look at where power should lie in the UK.

The temptation might be to believe that, if they see off Alex Salmond, the whole issue will simply go away and they can forget again about stuff north of Hampstead. History suggests this would be wrong.

"Mr Mas refers to "the Spanish state" rather than Spain and uses the term 'self-determination' rather than 'independence'. It is his contention that member states of the European Union (and particularly the Eurozone) are so interdependent that the term 'independent' no longer truly applies to them. However that may be, it is clear that Mr Mas intends Catalonia to be a sovereign state which is no less independent than Denmark and Belgium."

What was behind BBC Scotland’s attack on the Scottish NHS? | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

According to the report, the episode “marks the culmination of the BBC’s slide into a far more traditional ‘state broadcaster’, an organisation afraid to challenge power and terrified of controversy. In its reporting of domestic affairs the BBC seems resigned to the role of a bland and compliant megaphone for established interests.”
