Gordon Brown claims Olympics prove Scots should shun independence | Scottish Times | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it
The former British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, who was in office in the run up to the UK's financial and economic crises, has claimed that public expenditure in Scotland would have to be cut or taxes would have to be raised to compensate for the savings that "pooling and sharing" resources within Britain creates.

Political opponents will point to the fact that since the financial crisis started during Brown's tenure in office, taxes have gone up and services have been cut already.

2014 v 2016: An Open Letter To Angus Robertson - 2014 is about DEMOCRACY. 2016 is about POLICY

2014 v 2016: An Open Letter To Angus Robertson - 2014 is about DEMOCRACY. 2016 is about POLICY | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it
2014 is a referendum on relocating power, relocating the tools of democratic governance, from London to Scotland. 2016 is about the people of Scotland picking up these tools and using them in any damned way we choose. I’ll say it again: 2014 is about DEMOCRACY. 2016 is about POLICY.

 

Everyone in the Independence movement needs to bust a gut explaining the difference between 2014 and 2016 to the Scottish people. If this means taking to task senior SNP Ministers as well as political pundits or prominent NO campaigners then so be it. Let’s call it essential preparatory work.

 

To this end it would benefit the Yes campaign if yourself, Alex Salmond, and everyone involved in the Scottish government and the SNP actively challenged any assumption that SNP policies are the pre-ordained realities of an Independent Scotland.

The Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise funding will enable Aberdeen City Council, supported by Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group, to start the project’s first phase with an order for 10 hydrogen fuel-cell buses – which produce water vapour instead of carbon monoxide and other harmful emissions.

They will be operated on First and Stagecoach bus routes in the city by early 2014 and refuelled at Scotland’s first large hydrogen refuelling station, which will also be able to refuel hydrogen-powered passenger cars, as they become available.

The Glasgow MP blew a gasket, ranting about “Newsnat” Scotland and accusing Miss Fraser and her colleagues of being pro-SNP, something that will come as a surprise to Alex Salmond.
