That's fantastic Stevie. Remember your dad really well from being around the house with Brian. The photographs are brilliant. Sorry you lost him last year too.

I ask this question because it seems to me that the Scottish Nationalist argument all boils down to money.  'It's Scotland's oil' they scream and then prattle on about how Scotland's economy will flourish after they gain inde...

I absolutely love the soul of Lauryn's voice, it grabs me. Wycliffe on the other hand needs knocking out for the duration of the song. Ruins it, pisses me off every time he pitches in like a kid with a kazoo

beyond bad, especially the closing female voice
 
I just had to share this pile of crap. I know, I know, but I couldn't keep it to myself. This is the sort of nonsense that we in Scotland are having to put up with.

The group who came up with this is the No Borders group. It claims to be a grassroots organisation which just started up, but is actually run by a Tory supporting millionaire who owns a PR firm, and which has been working on their campaign for well over a year, before launching in a blaze of "we just started a week ago, and we're comprised of ordinary Scots, honestly" BBC free publicity - in a spot repeated hourly over two days, something the BBC has failed singularly to do with real grassroots campaigns for the Yes side.

Basically, this is extreme nonsense packaged in a glossy 30 second ad, backed by no evidence. That's unsurprising, for a number of reasons:

1. The oil companies have spent the last four years investing record amounts in North Sea Oil, and reckon there is more to come out than has already been extracted over the last 40 years. And that's not even including potential new finds, prospecting and testing for which is going on right now.

2. North Sea Oil revenue only accounts for a small proportion of Scottish wealth. We have plenty of other income sources, and we have more being developed.For example, according to the EU, Scotland has 25% of the total renewable energy resources of Europe. And we're just getting started on monetizing that.

3. The No campaign really doesn't have any credible reasons for voting No - which is why they continue to try and scare the gullible and the ignorant with puff pieces like this rubbish.

I could list other reasons, but I don't really need to. The fact that point 1 is true completely negates the claims being made by this atrocious piece of "the sky is falling" fantasy. This advert, and the fake grassroots campaign of Malcolm Offord are the result of fear. Fear that Scotland will vote Yes. Fear that the No campaign is not being believed. Fear that they have nothing to offer but fear and lies, lie about pensions, about oil, about passports, about, well, pretty much everything. But no facts. Not one.

Don't let them fool people. If you know someone who is thinking of voting No or who is undecided, point them in the direction of real facts. Illustrate for them how much nonsense claims like the one in this video are. The facts speak for themselves - and the fact is that every time there is a debate between Yes and No campaigners, in town halls and student unions across Scotland, the swing afterwards is pretty much always towards Yes, and that's because the No campaign do not have any facts, only fear.

Why on earth would we agree to being decimated by the very politics we fought to change and reject? Good read here.
As I listened to the BBC Radio 4 feature on 'The Mersey Militants' on Saturday 8th November, it filled me with a mixture of fond memories and fury.  Mass struggle won jobs and services in Liverpool 1984 Warm recollections ...

A new meme appears to be bubbling up from the ranks of Better Together. It's to the effect that, whatever the outcome of the referendum, Scotland is going to be left "divided", usually "bitterly" divided, after it. The implic...
