    BBC isn't much better, every 30 mins they are showing May putting us in our place
    Is that the presidential interview between Jakey Burd and May with the Union Flag prominent in the background?

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Billy Bragg sums it up much more eloquently than I ever could.

    Anyone else watching sky news right now? One jibe after the other about Scots, Scottish independence, the Scottish mentality, Scottish arrogance, Scottish inadequacy, Scottish education, Scottish politicians and of course the Scottish diet. Jeez, it feels like Nazi Germany held the Jews in higher esteem than our so called partners hold us.
    Seriously? You're not doing your cause any good with ill-considered assertions like this ...

    Do you think I'm serious? Or could it be the reporting pissed me off and I'm venting by using exaggerated sarcasm?

    Of course not, I get your annoyance - but WE live in Germany, your statement doesn't do YOU any justice - I've no doubts that you could vent your frustration better and more pointedly - e.g. BB is an interesting read. Why are you wasting your time watching Murdoch's "news" agency anyway

    Good article but an add on conclusion could have been that somebody should be fostering a sense of civic nationalism in England to displace the ethnic nationalism that is growing like a cancer here.

    I think that was part of the Blair appeal in the 1990s.

    We can throw many examples about to suit the agenda at hand but I think the long and short of it is that Brexit has significant and substantial risks that have yet to be fully explored or even properly understood.

    Ha ha very good but I don't think that was ever up for debate.

    My rather simple point is that Brexit shows what happens when the public votes for something that hasn't been fully explored and while I believe that is no reason to backtrack on the decision now that it is made it would be fool hardy to go about ANOTHER Indy ref with the same approach.

    Which bit do you not understand?

    the failings of the first campaign is being fully explored. I wonder how the Better Together campaign is getting on?

    Jeez I get that and responded as such further up the thread...

    But if you don't mind I'll await the output before taking any view as the last effort (white paper) was hardly a resounding success...
