School-of-Brown politics is as destructive as ever

School-of-Brown politics is as destructive as ever | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

Martin Kettle: The reform bill fiasco has vindicated the militant oppositionism embodied by Ed Balls and Labour, and may yet threaten the coalition... Put big constitutional reform on the agenda at the start of a parliament when authority is high, not halfway through, when authority is slipping away. Hold a referendum first, on the principle of the thing, so that MPs are cowed and rebels have less room to make mischief. Don't go to a referendum afterwards, when the vote becomes a verdict on the government not the reform. Nick Clegg should have learned from that.

Scotland's Missing Wood Cabins

Scotland's Missing Wood Cabins | YES for an Independent Scotland | Scoop.it

Norway has the hytta. Sweden has the sommerhus. Finland has the stuga. Russia has the dacha. New Zealand has the bach. Canada and the United States have cabins. Scotland alone in Northern Latitudes seems to have virtually no hut, cabin or modest second home tradition. Why and does it matter? Journalist and Nordic Horizons Director Lesley Riddoch compares the "hut traditions" of Norway and Scotland. Land campaigner Andy Wightman describes hut building Swedish-style. Both explore the land ownership issues that keep urban Scots away from nature.
