Alan Bissett: The Trouble with Corbyn (Phantom Power YouTube)

Ajoutée le 13 août 2017
As UK Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn states his intention to target SNP seats in the next general election, acclaimed writer Alan Bissett considers the implications for Scottish independence and particularly those on the left who also support self-determination for Scotland. While Corbyn has taken Labour back to its socialist roots, Scottish Labour is a very different beast and have deliberately interpreted their modest gains and SNP reduction in seats as a rejection of independence. Alan discusses Corbyn’s election prospects as well as his contradictory positions on a progressive SNP alliance, Brexit, Trident, internationalism and British nationalism. Corbyn and his pro-independence supporters can’t have it both ways.

Gasuir le Gaeilge: Leabhar Mór na hEalaíne

Leabhar Mór na hEalaíne

Gasuir le Gaeilge: Bhí mé i gCo. Aontroma le gairid ar chúrsaí oibre agus thug mé an chlann liom. Thug muid cuairt sciobtha ar an siopa leabhar sa gCultúrlann i mBéal Feirste le cur lenár stór leabhar Gaeilge féin, agus roghnaíodh Leabhar Mór na hEalaíne mar leabhar do na gasúir ar fad.

Aistriúchán ar leabhar Béarla de chuid Dorling Kindersley é, agus sár-saothar atá ann. 


Scottish Independence: The magic money rigs

The magic money rigs
by Stuart Campbell 
(Wings Over Scotland, August 10, 2017)

“RTS” is the UK government’s – or more precisely HMRC’s – Regional Trade Statistics accounts, which seek to disaggregate the UK economy to see how much money is generated in which areas. When independence supporters first discovered that the large bulk of North Sea oil revenues were attributed in the stats to an “unknown region” rather than to Scotland – Wings readers knew about it at least as early as July 2014 – Unionists went into overdrive to downplay and obfuscate the fact.

But as of this year, with the independence referendum safely long in the past, the UK government has very quietly altered the methodology of RTS to now accurately credit oil revenues to where they belong.
