FREEDOM... and rubbish campaigning

03rd August 2014
Sitting here south of the border (alas) and looking at what is happening north of it I am somewhat disheartened. There is so much misinformation and bitter, nasty campaigning going on that it really does sadden me.

Scotland has the opportunity to make a momentous decision about it's future direction, whichever way the vote goes. But it should be a positive decision, made for positive reasons. Not a decision made on hate, misinformation and misdirection. People seem ready to grasp onto really obviously false stories and tales to further their chosen side (although I have been seeing a lot more of the pro-independence campaign being guilty of this).

I do believe in Scottish independence - I think it could work, and work well - a small, dynamic and modern country is a good thing and would work well, but it needs to be founded on positivity.

Anyway, enough of such things. A happy photograph from today instead!
