"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?"

Jim Swire continues his essay into the parallels between Hillsborough and Pan Am 103.

SRSM - Press Releases

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. We object to Mr Murphy’s War Party incinerating people in Iraq and elsewhere, plus the biggest incinerating Nuclear Terror Weapon of all, Trident, being based in our country.

The Catalonia Independence March | Frankly: La Diada | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

"My goal is to try to reach an agreement with the central government on the economic area and to try to protect Catalonia and to give our country the tools we need to build our future, our national future. If there is not an agreement on the economic basis, you know that the way of Catalonia for freedom is open."


In other words, if there is no agreement on a new Fiscal Pact between Catalonia and Spain, expect a referendum followed by Catalan independence.

 

What do Catalans want? According to the latest opinion poll published today (by GESOP), 49.5% would vote in favour of independence, while 48% would vote against it, in a referendum: read more...

"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."

Labour MP Ian Davidson Calls On Removal Of Nationalists From Commonwealth Games #VASI #IndyRef #YESSCOT | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

In a bizarre outburst during Scottish Question Time in the House of Commons, Labour MP Ian Davidson has called for Nationalist politicians to be removed from any connection to Glasgow's Commonwealth Games.

"

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

“..would he agree that when it comes to the Glasgow games it’s absolutely essential that they are run by the City of Glasgow and that we do not have nationalist politicians trying to muscle in.”"
