"Labour, on either side of the border. It exists, at the parliamentary level, primarily for the personal financial enrichment of its representatives, and its hatred of independence is founded rather less on the interests of Scotland than on the employment security of the 40 or so MPs currently drawing down fat salaries for cushy opposition jobs at Westminster"

"How can today's Lord Advocate expect us to believe that everything is being done to reach the truth through an active ongoing criminal investigation, when his Department, the Crown Office appears to have allowed the destruction of substantial tranches of what might have been key evidence, in addition to appearing to have allowed illegal changes to have been made to at least one police evidence bag label?"

It is our understanding that the Shadow Minister for War, James Murphy has objected to Scottish Republican Socialist Movement’s presence on the forthcoming cross party and non-party March for Independence on Saturday, September 22nd in Edinburgh.
Quite apart from the rally having nothing to with Mr Murphy, or his Unionist Party, we shall remind them that the Imperialist Union flag is not called the “Butcher’s Apron” for nothing.

"It is my belief that in the case of Lockerbie the law of Scotland has been subsumed into the priorities of American foreign policy....Yet I have come to believe over the past 25 years that not only did the US manipulate the Scottish criminal legal process, but that the Scottish Crown Office has ever since, fought a battle to maintain the fiction that it acted with integrity throughout the legal prosecution process." Dr Jim Swire
On September 11th, the national day of Catalonia, the programme of events for which included a March for Independence in which 1.5 million people were reported to have participated, the reputedly moderate pro-independence First Minister, Artur Mas, warned the Spanish government that, if it did not come to an agreement on a Fiscal Pact granting fiscal autonomy to the Generalitat, the road to Catalan "freedom" would be open.

Davidson is well known for his bitter comments about the SNP and his physical threats to the SNP MP, Eilidh Whiteford. He asked his Better Together colleague Tory Scottish Office Minister David Mundell
