Quotes

"It is just more of the same from the former Prime Minister with what is fast becoming his single transferable speech. Why on earth does he think making the same speech he did two months ago will help his argument now when the campaign he backs has lost support since its first outing?"
Jean concurs adding "The Yes campaign has been a terrific melting pot for everyone in Scotland. The lost voice of the SSP in the Scottish Parliament is Scotland's loss. After independence, we need to truly reflect all the people of Scotland; that cannot be done without its Socialist voice."
He added: "Every Saltire flying household in the country can be approached and offered one of these to fly. Every major event this summer can have a large Yes presence, even those of you abroad can fly your Yes flags in support as the world starts to realise what is happening here."
