This may look serene – but under the surface there is a Referendum debate raging

Alex Salmond and the SNP succeeded in securing a Referendum on Scottish Independence - well done! - but now it's about Self Determination or Servitude for Scotland ... that's the only question, There are only two answers - yes or no - the rest of the rhetoric is only there to throw you off the scent! ..... and the waters start to stir!

This Makes me Mad

My main focus is Scotland’s referendum.  However, some things make me mad. For many years I have felt that much of the world’s ill are down to the UN.  By that I mean the weakness and bureaucracy of the UN has turned them into disaster viewers or in the extreme, genocide participants. Consider this example.  In 1995 the ‘Siege of…

Scotland’s referendum – the problem that cannot be solved

Scotland’s referendum – the ‘power’ of the badge

It’s Saturday 28th and we are headed for Bannockburn.  This is day 1 of 2 of the re-enactment and there is a capacity crowd of 10,000. It’s a nice(ish) day, some showers predicted but some sun as well.  Nothing will dampen our spirits for this historic 700th anniversary. Going through Stirling we run out of road signs.  The military celebration,…
