THE Labour Party will break up if Scotland opts to become independent, the shadow Scotland secretary Margaret Curran has said.
Jim Arnott's insight:

The Labour Party are only interested in their own continued existence rather than what is in the best interests of Scotland. Scottish Labour politicians should be ashamed of themselves.

Jim Arnott's insight:

I love the Tories new logo. It is obviously designed to achieve cutting the rUK off from Scotland. Can't wait - bring it on. All that is required is a Yes vote in the Referendum on 18th September 2014.

Ruth Davidson MSP: Adam Afriyie’s EU referendum amendment could threaten the Union | Conservative Home | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
Conservatives are working hard to keep Scotland in the Union, and it's working. Moving the EU referendum to 2014 risks giving Alex Salmond a lifeline.

Scottish independence: Deadline to reveal next steps

Scottish independence: Deadline to reveal next steps | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
THE UK elections watchdog has recommended the Scottish and Westminster Governments set out what will happen after next year’s referendum by 20 December this year.
Jim Arnott's insight:

The NOsayers must give us a clue as to what Scotland would look like after Sept 2014. I am personally very afraid of the persecution of Scots should we vote no next year. There is only one way to avoid this and that is to:

 

Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.

Jim Arnott's insight:

Johann Lamont never takes a stance. She is always found sitting on the fence and that certainly explains the crabbit expression on her face - it must be awful painful.

Ruth Davidson: UK should speak up for the Union | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
Ruth Davidson told delegates at the Tory Party conference that Alex Salmond did not speak for most Scots Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has urged people in the rest of the UK to speak up for the Union.
Jim Arnott's insight:

Ruth Davidson seems to forget that Alex Salmond is the First Minister of Scotland elected by the people of Scotland. Does she seriously suggest that David Cameron is not the Prime Minister of the UK even though he was "elected" by the people of the UK? Alex Salmond I would suggest is a more legitimate leader than David Cameron.
