See my AMAZING Photoshop skills? 

I asked the question here, could we catch the Tory Party: https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/09/27/the45-imagine-70000-of-the-1-6m-people-who-votes-yes-paid-1-a-months-to-the-snp/

Sometimes people need a metaphorical kick in the arse to fully dedicate themselves to a cause; in this case, the failure of the referendum for Scotland’s independence would have been pretty much all they needed. Who says we don’t respect the decision? We just don’t believe that the British government will fulfill their end of the bargain, we just want to see a party that’ll actually push for the powers promised and that actually represents Scotland (as opposed to the Tories and Red Tories).

The SNP membership is up by 75,000 since the vote and already people across Scotland are planning for how we can obtain independence as quickly as possible. When 71% of teenagers vote yes, it is only a matter of time… and how. If anyone seriously believes this matter is finished, it isn’t far from it. The yes camp are more energised than ever and will make this happen with the help of the Tories down south who seem hell bent on helping us. The SNP are now the third biggest political party in the UK, and membership is still increasing at an encouraging rate. With Labour supporters burning their cards and the SNP’s membership rising exponentially, i think it is time that the press evaluated their response. The backlash from this could be immense in Scotland and would not be unjustified. In fact it appears that indyref has strengthened the SNP rather than weakened it. Labour are seen as traitors because they stood shoulder to shoulder with the Conservatives and the right wing press has ben vilified.

I heartily applaud Salmond for banning the ‘hunting down’ of ancient poll tax debts. The poll tax was one of the most badly designed and grossly unfair taxes ever to have been foisted on modern Scotland. Families on low income sway their local taxation double, treble, quadruple and so on – virtually overnight. Crucially the poll tax or community charge tax bore no relationship on people’s ability to pay. It was a Thatcherite tactic to cut taxes for the wealthy and further impoverish the poor. Many people simply could not afford to pay the tax, this was not helped by heavy charges being levied by councils for late payment. Some people refused to pay the tax on principle. The whole thing was an absolute unjust regressive farce.

Eck may be standing down in November, but I am enjoying the fact that he’s going out with a bang, and I’m sure he shall return to lead an increased SNP contingent to Westminster. And continue to be a fly in the ointment for the Unionist parties, whilst fighting Scotland’s corner.
Alex Salmond is showing he’s closer to the people of Scotland than any of his parliamentary opposition who should totally support him in drawing a line on a social experiment started in Scotland unsuccessfully and then in incredible folly, introduced into England where the good people killed it stone dead.

And Nicola Sturgeon in tacking IDS and Cameron this week over Universal Credit is indeed encouraging stuff, this bodes well for Sturgeon’s tenure as FM. She’s no afraid of those Thatcherites’ in Westminster! In fact in a new poll conducted by Panelbase, Salmond and Sturgeon, were the only two leaders of the political parties to score a positive rating – by far the most successful and longest lasting partnership in Scottish politics. A positive rating after seven years – remarkable.They did the impossible – transformed a small party into one with a majority in the Scottish parliament. Just shows there is another world outside where the sun shines and positive things happen.

#The45 – Imagine 70,000 Of The 1.6M People Who Votes Yes Paid £1 a Months to the SNP!


70,000 votes behind the Tory Party!

70,000 votes behind the Tory Party! – Can we overtake them?

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I know this won’t happen, but imagine for a second 70,000 of the 1.6 million people who  voted yes went onto this site here https://my.snp.org/join and paid as little as £1 a month! Scotland if we become the UK’s second biggest party I think we can walk out of the Union. Now I am no expert but if a Scottish ONLY party were the 2nd in Britain ahead of UKIP (THEY ARE DANGEROUS) Liberal Democrats and Conservative parties, I am sure we could leave the Union or at least call for another Referendum, a fairer one this time. Media keeps saying that “HUGE 10% LEAD THE NO CAMP GOT” In reality it’s only 5%. Take that 5% and move it to yes, we are a free country perhaps, so don’t be fooled by the media playing this like an overwhelming win for Yes. 80% No to 20% Yes would have been a HUGE LEAD!

I ask is it at all possible for Scotland to try and take over the Conservative party? I mean £1 a month out your bank account. I know many can’t afford that. But out of the 1.6 Million people who voted Yes, I am sure there are 70,000 people that can afford £1

Scottish Referendum Is ‘Too Close To Call’


scotland-composite-1-522x293

Too close to call? I don’t see it that way, Yes is way in-front

The Scottish referendum outcome is “too close to call” as both sides enter the final days of the vote campaign, a research agency has said. The TNS poll which puts the Yes and No campaigns equal on 41% came as the leaders of the three main pro-union parties put on a united front to pledge new powers for the Scottish parliament if it votes to stay in the UK on September 18. The measures, which will be contained in a new “home rule bill”, have yet to be detailed in full but the leaders of Scotland’s Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem parties said they had agreed there would be more tax-raising powers for Holyrood. It follows Gordon Brown’s attempt to wrest back the initiative for the No campaign on Monday saying he was firing the “starting gun” for the introduction of far-reaching devolutionary changes.  The former prime minister said work on the transfer of power would begin on the day after the vote, should Scotland vote to remain in the union. The Scottish political leaders on Tuesday endorsed his timetable but would not be drawn on precisely what new powers had been agreed by the three parties. Johann Lamont, the leader of the Scottish Labour party, said: “It is possible to vote no on September 18, the patriotic choice, but also to say that you are voting for change – more powers for the Scottish parliament.” Mr Brown is well aware that Labour supporters are increasingly anxious as the polls suggest significant numbers are being persuaded by the Yes campaign.

His proposal was welcomed by the Prime Minister but David Cameron was effectively bounced into endorsing Mr Brown’s initiative, knowing that he has the ability to energise an electorate that has been resistant to his overtures.

The Better Together campaign has denied the move amounts to panic measures. Labour leader Ed Miliband raised a Saltire over Liverpool on Tuesday and is encouraging other councils to do the same to send the message that England wants Scotland to stay in the union. TNS said the Yes and No campaigns were neck and neck with 41% ahead of the vote on September 18. Tom Costley, head of TNS Scotland, said: “This poll reveals a remarkable shift in voting intentions but the signs were evident in our last couple of polls which indicated a narrowing of the No lead, especially amongst those who told us that they were certain to vote. “It is too close to call and both sides will now be energised to make the most of the last few days of the campaign and try and persuade the undecided voters of the merits of their respective campaigns.” Some 600,000 people could still have to make up their minds in the referendum, with leaders attempting to win over undecided voters.

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said pro-independence campaigners have “10 days of hard work” to win the referendum. The TNS poll shows backing for the Yes campaign is up from 38% last month, while support for maintaining the union has dropped from 46%. The momentum is for now with Yes, but were that to change the pressure would suddenly become just as strong on the other side.
