Independence

It is time to acknowledge the collective destruction and fear, and find the creative solutions that exist within this scenario. Resourcefulness, after all, is what we do best in the UK.
I'm not going to claim we're out of the woods yet; there's a long way to go till the fruits of independence are laid bare. For starters, we're certainly not going to be spending that phantom £350million anytime soon (if it even proves to exist). But seeing people write off a historic opportunity on the basis of one day's events is absolutely crackers.
Our inspiration for making these games is of course our brother Tommy. He was always a pretty good learner, with a fantastic mind for curious facts and ludicrous jokes, but maths was one of the last things to click and we noticed how this impacted on his independence right up to his late twenties.
If we scroll through our Instagram feeds, we find pages dotted with posts that quietly slander the single life. We find parodies illustrating solo Netflix binges; empty sides of a bed and screenshots documenting how we get more notifications from Apple about our iCloud being full than we do actual messages.
As a comedian, I essentially come out every single night and there is part of me that feels completely and utterly liberated by this and by the fact that I am getting laughs and applause for being me. Let me take you to the beginning of the story...
Looking over what I'm saying, it makes it sound like I am just deeply selfish and unwilling to compromise. I can give you a few testimonials from people who love me that will tell you the opposite (hi mum!). I just feel that being alone should be everybody's default position and that needing company, at most, should be our secondary state of being.
A lot has changed since January 2014. Not just that I now live in London, have a stable job and most excellent workplace, but mainly for the reason that this time two years ago I was living in Palermo, Sicily. Yeah, I'm still trying to get used to the lack of good coffee.
The Scotland Stronger In campaign has, after all that, started on the right lines. The glib comments about being "Project Cheer" are exactly the kind of thing that will warm the Scottish people to it.
My body is a balancing act, in a number of ways. I want to be independent, but I need to accept help when I can't be. I want to stay upright, but can allow myself to sit down when I'm at risk of hurting myself. I want to keep mobile, but can use Ruby the Chair for this sometimes. And I'll probably keep throwing myself on the floor randomly. You'd all get bored otherwise.
Quite bizarre is Nicola Sturgeon's assertion that demand for Scottish independence will grow after, rather than before, a European Union exit. Stranger still is her belief that thinking Scots will actually vote for it.
