Our support for a "yes" vote isn't just a matter of passively following the lead of the Scottish Green Party, nor is it even just our no-comprise respect for the principle of self-determination, the right of peoples to decide their own future. First, we see the exciting possibilities of a new state in Scotland. It's a country whose voters have never been neoliberal, never voted neoliberal, where active espousal of the privatisation, austerity agenda that's done so much to protect and enhance the position of the rich in our society has got the Tories to where they are today north of the border, which is nowhere at all.
If you think this is only a Scottish issue, you'd be wrong. On 21st of June 50000 anti-austerity marchers hit the streets of London and the BBC didn't produce a single word about it. By contrast in 2011 a pro-Austerity march by the Tax Payers Alliance which totalled 350 people was covered in detail. It's not only our BBC that is at fault here - it's your BBC too.
If you are undecided or find yourself wavering in your decision to vote Yes, pause, step back and take a clear-headed look at what more the Union could possibly offer. One glance at the political, social and economic landscape before you is evidence enough that it is time to take a different course.
Many milestones have already been marked on the road to the independence referendum as our nation prepares to make a significant choice - almost certainly the most significant decision many of us will make in a lifetime. As we reach the 100 days to go mark, I see a marked shift in how people are viewing the crucial vote. Travelling around Scotland I have seen a growing appetite for debate and, alongside that, a continuing clamour for more information and facts.
Good old Vlad is propping up the news again as the shiftiest world leader. Apart from Kim Jong Un. Or Xi Jinping. Or King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Or - who's that bloke who controls the biggest, most notorious 'intelligence' agency in the world? Oh, of course, US President Barack Obama. Or, for that matter, his chum David Cameron...
Despite the effected disinterest of some of their English MPs, the breakup of the union could shatter the Conservatives. After all, what would be the purpose of a right-wing party that can no longer uphold the most basic and fundamental tenant of conservatism - the preservation and continuation of the nation.
