THE disintegration of the SNP? Independence is the real prize.

We Scots and the rump of what remains of our planet simply can’t afford unlimited growth. Even the Tories have shown that to be the case, with their fascist immigration bill. No country in the world can afford unlimited immigration, but that’s what climate change has brought upon us all.

We just have to live with it. After all, it was the Western democracies that brought it about. Pretending “it’s nothing to do with me” just won’t cut it.
