I was out with my camera the other day and I looked up and there in the sky a sign as clear as day. We have nearly waited long enough and the time is very soon and Nicola must call us together. All who have spent our days working towards an Independent Scotland. It is time.
My journey has been intrinsically linked to the Independence road since I was a wee laddie. Here at Westerhailes in Edinburgh are Craig and Charles Reid in June 1989 riding high on the success of the fantastic album 'Sunshine on Leith' and important activists in our efforts over many years. I was working with my guid pal Crawford Cumming on the promotional materials for the campaign to elect Jay Smith to the European Parliament. It's a pity we lost but we had some great fun. We were lo tech back then, haudin on to the back of a truck with a megaphone. In those days we were working with film and paste up on a drawing table, nae digital and hand cut cut outs haha.
Nicola's determination and passion is without doubt. Let us have the confidence.
