The Growth Commission Report is coming...

It’s clear from the past week that Nicola Sturgeon will use anything, including stirring up a political crisis, to kick-start her drive for indyref2. Most of us Scots are fed up with it.
 
The First Minister should be concentrating on the day job: fixing our economy and focussing on our NHS, police and teachers, but would rather set her sights on another referendum.
 
She said herself earlier in the week that independence would "never be off the table until it is realised."
 
Nearly two years ago, the SNP launched the Growth Commission to re-evaluate the economic case for Scottish independence, and they are publishing the report this week.  For the SNP, this is the next White Paper, reigniting the road to indyref2.
 
Nationalists will be using this as an opportunity to organise for indyref2, we must be ready. Can you help?
 
If you are a fed-up Scot and want to stop another costly and divisive referendum, please chip in!

When the mask of 'civic nationalism' slips

I’ve managed to get to a few SIU events recently, and have been impressed with the dedication and positive spirit shown by SIU supporters.  I particularly enjoyed returning to St Andrews, to hear an excellent talk from Professor Ali Ansari, and Jack Perry’s Edinburgh event was similarly interesting and informative.

On a less positive note, many of you will know that there was a nationalist march through Glasgow recently.  Estimates of attendance varied, but it was a relatively large march, even though the attendees were only a tiny fraction of Scotland’s population.  While the march was met mostly with indifference across Scotland, I believe two things are worth noting about the event.

SIU Chief Exec Pamela Nash Warns Against Complacency

We recently revealed our new publication The Majority newspaper, which put the spotlight on the issues which concern many of our supporters about the impact the SNP’s neverendum is having on Scotland.  Thank you so much to everyone who helped distribute 20,000 copies over the past month.  We cannot exist without the help of our volunteers, and we are enormously grateful.

Nearly two years ago, the SNP launched the Growth Commission to re-evaluate the economic case for Scottish independence, including options on the currency question and how to plug that enormous black hole in Scotland’s finances.  It has been widely tipped as the next White Paper, reigniting the road to indyref2.

So where is it?  Expected initially in 2016, it has been delayed several times.

Three Years On Since Our Launch: An Update From Founder Alastair Cameron

It’s almost exactly three years since Scotland in Union’s launch, on 5th March 2015. 

At that event, I said:

‘We represent the majority of people in Scotland and in the UK.  We are sometimes called the silent majority, but I prefer ‘the moderate majority’…we are sometimes quiet, but we are not quiescent; we are proud without being prejudiced; we are dignified and determined – and even if sometimes shouted down, we will not be silenced.  

Many nationalists define being Scottish as somehow being exclusive, with Scotland standing alone, separate from the UK.  We say “No” to that narrow view, and we say “Yes” to being inclusively Scottish.

At the weekend we once again had our teams out across Scotland.

The weather was wet, cold and snowy but our dedicated volunteers persisted and delivered our campaign message - that Scotland doesn’t want or need another divisive referendum.

Here's is a picture of some of the team out on Edinburgh's Princes Street on Friday.
