SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE

As I await the results of the Scottish independence referendum (keep up to date here), I have never been more proud to be Scottish.

If there's one thing we should take away from this, it's that politics is something we all should be actively interested and involved in. We should be prepared to stand by our beliefs and fight for the things we believe to be fair and right. People power!
