  1. How could the SNP get oil prices so wrong?

    The SNP have harped on about Scotland's oil for decades now. Yet it's oil price forecast from only a year ago ($113 versus $62 a barrel currently) was so woefully optimistic it's not funny. Glad to see that the parties of the Union are showing great maturity, and are not seeking to make...

  4. End the Drugs War....

    Just watched this on the i Player. A great film. Think this is Russell Brand at his best. The criminalisation of drugs is not working which Brand points out in his own way. Things need to change drastically in our country to help addicts into recovery and break the cycle of using, arrested, prison....

  5. How many Scottish natiionalists will vote to leave Europe in a referendum?

    The repatriation of powers is a central plank of Scottish nationalism. There is an opportunity to further increase local power and decision-making if the UK votes to leave the EU. Is it not therefore logical that nationalists should vote for independence from the EU as well as from...
