Jim Arnott's insight:

If Scottish peers were to remain in the House of Lords if they moved house to live in the rUK this would mean the rUK would be picking up the tab for their presence in the Lords. I like it.

Jim Arnott's insight:

This article shows just how scared the Unionistas are about losing the Referendum on independence for Scotland on 18th September 2014.

Jim Arnott's insight:

I believe I read somewhere that Alistair Darling hoovered up fees of around £170,000 for his speaking arrangements. Was this in the last year or was it over a more prolonged timescale? Can anyone confirm the scale and timescale of the fees? If this is true, it will really sit well with a majority of Scots - lol.

 

Again, if true, this is another possible reason for more and more Scots switching to the Yes side of next year's Referendum on independence for Scotland.

Labour vote to stop cash for Bedroom Tax victims | Scottish National Party | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
Jim Arnott's insight:

This continuation of Labour hypocracy on the Bedroom Tax (and other issues) is the reason more and more ordinary Labour supporters and activists in Scotland are switching to voting Yes in next years referendum on independence for Scotland. They see independence in Scotland as the best way to regain labour values.

The Red Baron Flies Again | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it

Baron Foulkes of Cumnock is back on fine form tweeting today that: "John Major tells our Select Committee that it would take at least 10 years for a separate Scotland to get back into EU".

Jim Arnott's insight:

OMG I hope Foulkes keeps it up until the 18th September 2014. If there is one single person who can screw the No vote it's Foulkes.
