BREXIT??

LEITH UNIQUE

Dear Sir/Madam

I, like many others have listened and listened.

I, like many others downloaded the draft withdrawal agreement and, like many others did not know what to make of it.  From a drafting sense there was a mixed up feel about it, and from personal experience, I cannot say for sure but it feels like this draft has been cobbled together in a rush and is made up of bits of legislation from all over.  It is only my view but it really feels like a document that tries to please everyone, but again, that is only my view.

So I have a few questions:

Can you please tell me why?  Why are we even considering leaving?  The European and, indeed other economic migrants from around the world actually contribute a huge amount to the UK economies in all states within the UK.  There are very few people, at…

FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON

SCOTLAND POSITIVE

I have just started a module on Managing the Economy in the university course I am studying.  That does not sound very interesting I hear you say, however, the date on the chart with the biggest negative curve was 2008, a year most people in the world know well.

The year the tram works started in Edinburgh, I HAVE NO DOUBT, was the year, SCOTLAND CHANGED DIRECTION:

The year this SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT started FOR REAL;

THE YEAR A FINANCIAL CRASH AND DEPRESSION CREATED –                                                A DETERMINATION FOR CHANGE;

                         SNP MAJORITY GOVERNMENT  OCCUPY MOVEMENT

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Sandra Marshall and I live in the South of Scotland near Edinburgh.

At this moment I am sitting in my parents’ house near Penicuik in the quiet space I have needed to find all year, away from chaos!

I came here today because I needed to think. I needed to focus my action in a way that will benefit the lives of the families I am a member of, in a method that will allow me to step forward in the never ending pattern of life. I gave myself permission to stop for one afternoon and look at life from a different perspective. I can truly listen to God’s voice in this house.

As I watched the wind making music with the leaves and branches on the trees and enjoyed the bright sunlight making the garden bright with laughter I considered again what steps to…

Have we honestly gone so far backwards in time?
I remember writing once a desolate dream, my country getting smaller beset by some mindless imperial dream of a past that never really existed.

A past that contained the force of slavery, Highland Clearances, great disadvantage whilst a minority sat on vast wealth of empire, they would not share.

That was then, the Nineteen hundreds when children were sent down mines and up crumbling chimneys, pulling vast loads of coal and cleaning the soot out in a sea of dark, hunger and pain. If you didn’t have a penny in those days gone by, you were a criminal and sent to a workhouse to eat gruel and wear rags until someone could get you out, or you died. When the Toll Puddle Martyrs in a peaceful demonstration were fired on by their own army because the Government did not want their…

A Case of Fake News

What is it people get from creating destructive fake news about an individual, a group, a community, a country………? I do have some idea at an individual level, I have been there not to long ago. However, that is not why I am writing this piece.

You see I am fed up of hearing badly reported, not objective, negative generalised news about the community I live in. Of course it is well known that such sensationalist fake news will bring a second of fame, however it brings nothing but further bad news, hurt people, loss of opportunity to the community concerned. This time the fake news was once more about wild teenagers, one of the favourite targets for

any journalist??? Not real news at all! This person travelling on the same bus as I did not say much that was new, just everything that was…
