A new day, a new writer

One of the things I have enjoyed most about this whole referendum on Scottish independence has been the discovery that there are scores of people out there who share my general views on a) what is wrong with the UK and b) how an independent Scotland could do it better (sometimes it has been a lonely life thinking I was completely in the minority) . I can easily fill my days reading blog after article and watch YouTube clip after listening to podcasts. There are books a plenty I could buy and read (and I’ve bought a few though not as many as I would like) and most days I encounter yet another person to add to my ‘must read’ list.

Today is one such day. Today I encountered Simon Varwell thanks to a piece written by one of my very favourite independence writers, Wings Over Scotland.

Normally I simply reblog articles I like (as I often do with Wee Ginger Dug and Bella Caledonia) but Simon is using a different web package to present his writing so I can’t do that today but I thought his writing, and especially the quality of his analysis, was worthy of being shared so, without further ado, visit his page!

But I would also like to draw particular attention to (in no particular order) these posts of his:

I could easily have added others but thought I had better limit myself to articles which are not published elsewhere or topics which I have seen covered by other writers.

And while I am at it I would also recommend these writers who top my Go To list. There are many, many more that I do read but I try to never miss an article from these authors:
