    Scotlands Economy is outstripping that of the ruk, is this due to the Scottish governments policies, brexit related, or possibly goes a lot deeper than that?, one thing i have noticed since brexit is the rise in demand and price for fish, its gone through the roof, maybe the EU specificaly promoting scottish sea food to try show what we may miss, probably not.Good news on the economy front non the less

    It truely was a very painful experience, i had my family round early evening and we all felt excited and nervous a feeling that there was a small chance a significant piece of history was about to he made, I expected the result however that did not help when the vote came through, the campaign was full of excitement and enthusiasm in the yes camp which would have extended into an independent Scotland. Cut away all the bullshit of alan in his like, we really do have a fantastic country and one which can achieve independence in most of our lifetime. Keep the faith 👍

    Four years to the day, still gutted that some fellow countryman did not have the belief in our brilliant country to go it alone 😢

    As i said he would still vote snp through his want of independence, personally i just think the whole party is flat ATM which is understandable after 10+ years in office. They need to get voters excited again with a positive vision, we are in the process of making up a national investment bank thats one policy which has largely been welcomed, they need to play on it more and tap into people’s ambitions for the country.

    Yes he was, he would still vote snp but had lost some enthusiasm, what got to him was working alongside english lads whom were being taxed less! !”when taking scottish oil” haha. His mother is SNP daft and is very active with snp in fife. Theres no denying the snp although sound in government are a bit flat at the moment, we just need a bit of a spark

    Largely yes yer correct however i have came across a few snp/yes supporters whom would consider voting labour, like it or not some buy into corbyn, , the SNP are flat at the moment, a few questionable policies doesn’t help either and on top of that the press have demonised corbyn which yes voters can relate to!! I actually had this conversation with a lad whom i last met offshore this time 4 years ago just before indy ref. He was a HUGE yes man, we got onto politics to which he expressed his dissolution with the current snp gov and in particular Sturgeon, tax increases, min pricing ect all came up, although he was still all for indy he was less enthusiastic about the snp and expressed a growing fondness to Corbyn.

    The Brexit Thread

    I get the feeling theres somthing afoot in the “scottish tory party” they have gone into hiding and closed ranks, could they be the reason that May has not been ousted? As ruth davidson has already stated her dislike to mogg and boris!! Could they be holding the conservative party as a whole to ransom on a hard brexit? could you imagine the histeria if davidson resigned or disowned her master to the south, although it pains me to say! That conservative roasters in holyrood have lots of leverage on their masters its just that they dont use it to benefit scotland

    Outlaw King

    With the release a few “scottish” dramas such as 2 robert the bruce films and mary queen of scots not to mention a new series of outlander and the jocobite officer what kind of influence can that have on a countries culture and politics? Many often scoff at braveheart for its historical inaccuracy however it should never be underestimated the impact it had and how it sparked an interest in scottish history and if you ask me scottish self rule. Scottish culture and history has been suppressed since the act of union that there is no argument and to an extent we have had to rely on external sources like Hollywood to spark an interest, heres hoping outlaw king sparks an interest in scottish history and culture amongst our youth. Theres one thing it will have the scottish cringe mob up in arms i would love for a film/drama to spark an interest in Andrew de murray, black dougleas or the highland clearances, men and a period that have been painted over or forgotten in scottish society

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    Unfortunately like most clubs we have a few roasters within our ranks,, we all need to try get this element out of the fanbase of the National team

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    Apologies i have worded that wrong when i stated knuckle draggers. I was refering to those who wish to cause division, religiously or politically, this is the Scottish National team, politics and religion should not be anywhere near it,along with club loyalties. After scrolling through a few rangers forums there is definitely an element of the rangers fanbase whom want to exaggerate the issue(if there is one) i found it very refreshing the amount of rangers fans who refused to be sucked in on these forums and not buy in to the anti-national team that some are pushing, Again apologies if it came across i was generalising all rangers fans however there is a small element within their ranks pushing this anti national team to suite their own agenda..

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    We need to self police this as a support, as an aberdeen fan i know the dislike jack has within our club, if he was booed(which i was unaware of until now) it is completely unacceptable, it gives the knuckle draggers within the rangers support ammunition to further their cause, so disappointed if this is true. As i said i never heard a thing
