    This thread expresses disappointment about the launch of the YES campaign and the publicity it generated.

    Well the Scottish media has been full of it for days, before and after the event....

  3. Re: FMQ sketch: Oh, how he must have wished for ‘rain stopped play’

    Re: The no-rules referendum

    More scaremongering by a biased press. If they are suggesting that the practices they warn of smacks of illegality and foul-play and might be advantageous to the YES campaign, why does not the same...

    Re: Promoting Scotland

    Thanks for that reply Alastair. Expecting money from the Scots? That’s where you are going wrong.

    Seriously though, the Scottish government, local councils, any govt dept, office or board, cannot...

    Re: I think Scotland is ready for Independence

    Sandy,

    Entertaining as it might be to debate semantics or subjective opinions of the perceived subliminal meanings of what is being said, it gets tiresome after a while.

    You say that the SNP...

    Re: A History of the Border Counties

    The Borders were not always as popular or as peaceful as they are now. In 1525 the Archbishop of Glasgow was less than complementary when he caused the following to be read at public meeting places...

    Re: I think Scotland is ready for Independence

    To answer your question and I am not replying on behalf of the SNP here, nor do I want to suggest that my views are necessarily those of the SNP, far less their policy.

    Re: Caledonian, unhealthy groups???

    I am relieved to hear that you don’t do it in front of the Lords and Ladies. I’m sure there must be laws against it, or if there isn’t there should be.
