The Tories are saying that folk who can't speak English, won't be allowed to live in the UK?
Will they deport the folk born here, who can't speak it either?

They will throw everything they have at us. We must stand strong, and together. We know we'll be hit with a Unionist shit storm.

Well here it is …….. read it carefully, especially the bit about the 55% required of the total on the electoral register. That means in practice no referendum can ever possibly succeed ever again (even a return to the EU) ……

I'm assuming our government saw this coming - it's going to get very nasty.

Just a quick fact checker for those that are interested.

The people in power in Westminster are not gentlemen, they are bully boys. Check

They will play dirty to the end and will only surrender when somebody bigger and nastier steps in. Check

Nicola is an intelligent career politician and knows all this. Check

To achieve Independence the UN needs to be involved. Check

Before they can be involved, several boxes need to be checked. Check

Lets trust Nicola - she knows what she is doing ……….

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.

So now that the Tories see the inevitable writing on the wall they have decided that democracy in Scotland doesn't work for them. This was Viceroy Jack's latest pronouncement at the weekend! It's time we cleared Scotland of every MP (6 to go), elected MSP (7 to go) and councillor, for make no mistake bypassing Holyrood and dealing directly with the councils is their next move. We can shut that down by taking council elections far more seriously.

Yesterday in Glasgow was dreich and windy, but an estimated 80,000 people came out for the march for Scottish Independence. @daishin and I marched with our friend the Gaelic poet Babs Nicgriogair. That's Daishin at the front of the photo, Babs and me behind the banner. There were people from Plaid Cymru, here from Wales to march in solidarity. It was entirely peaceful. There were a few (and I do mean a few; probably not more than 20) unionist counter-protestors. They looked lonely.

in Scotland we now have a Sec of State imposed upon us by a Tory Govt we absolutely trashed in the last GE - a Sec of State who's a land-owning toff actually called (Union) Jack.
and he's just told us we're not getting an indyref IN OUR LIFETIME.

you cannot make this sh*t up.

@Yes2020 @GlennCoutts yeah, loads of videos of people literally dancing. If I didn't have this f**ing anxiety and panic disorder, I'd absolutely love to be at one of these marches. I'm going to aim for Peebles, but can't make any promises.

If you left Twitter for Tusky, you can leave Facebook too. Go ahead, try Diaspora. It's for your own good.

Elitist North America combines hypocrisy with atrocity while always wishing to appear saintly.

There is no cure except quarantine.

Russia and China are the world's greatest hope for a sane foreign policy that does not seek to command others or infringe on their sovereignty.
