David McHutchon: A prospectus for dependency

Across the world, national independence movements have invariably achieved their end without without the need for a prospectus. In fact, it’s a curious device, a sort of election manifesto for the indefinite future, certain to date hard and fast. ‘Building a New Scotland’ is an oddly singular vision, derived not as a result of any …

Ewan Gurr: COP26 and the Threat to Scottish Industries

What an utterly nauseating and polarising experience week one of COP26 has been.
