A quick word..

There are many, many thoughts and emotions coming to me with regards to the referendum result. Perhaps the most telling was this observation: Walking around yesterday, travelling to and from college, generally spending time in Scotland, it felt strange. Cities were still and quiet. It did not feel like a victory. It did not feel as though one side had triumphed over the other. Many people noticed this vibe too. The air had a suppressing, bleak quality to it.

The feelings of discontent and injustice have now been thrust into people’s faces, and that is an action that cannot be undone. I see a lot of people closing their eyes, turning away when such things are displayed to them, but, like it or not, all of this is here to stay, here to grow, here to undoubtedly triumph. Justice, fairness, and truth will all prevail eventually. To quote Irvine Welsh;

The smartest of them have always seen independence as a process, not an event.

In the meantime, here’s what we need to do;
