Iain Forbes Posted over 2 years ago Scottish Independence: confidence, courage and ambition Thanks David for this thoughtful piece. As Winnie Ewing once said 'Stop the World we want to get on!". The economic case is barely relevant, even without the proper tools to aid our own economy we still contribute more to the UK. That's not the point. What this comes down to in my mind is our own ambition. Let's be ambitious enough to build a new society, where every child has opportunity, where our old folk don't have to worry and a country that contributes to the world in a positive way instead of the self-seeking grandiose meddling the UK has been involved in. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have every resident of Scotland to shape there own country as a dynamic 21st century nation.
