More Miscellany

Just a few things today, like this Guardian article from an English person imploring Scotland to be vote independence. Whilst it’s a lighthearted and anecdotal piece, it does show up some of the resentment people feel towards the central government. Honestly, this, as much as anything is what the yes campaign is trying to mobilise to gain support, and will be a major factor in the referendum.

The second piece, and a taster of a bigger story to come is that developments are being made towards the land reform report, due out in April next year. This will be a major development, as land reform will be a huge contributor to revitalising the Scottish economy, raising funds (to be for all those SNP-promised tax cuts and spending rises) and creating a generally fairer society. Watch out for this one.
