I’ve been here since last summer. And I fall in love with Scotland a little more each day. Not only is it a stunningly beautiful country, it’s a friendly one, open and kind. And the more I see of the utter embarrassment that is the Brexit talks, votes, and negotiations in Westminster, the more I think that an independent Scotland is the way to go. Great Britain is certainly anything but great at present and it is by no means a United Kingdom – one looks to Wales and Ireland and wonders whether it has ever truly been. Yes, it’s definitely not going to be easy – but it’s far from impossible, either. •

Apologies if you feel this picture showing my support for an independent Scotland offends you or makes you unable to like what is a great picture. Please stop being so petty. I have to say, in my best Glasgow accent, "GET IT RIGHT UP YE"

Time for some sensible reflection. The vote didn't go for yes. I think we all knew it wouldn't. But, 1.6 million of us believed in it enough to stand up and be counted. Scotland has been in danger of losing a little of its national identity, through this campaign Scottish pride has been re-ignited. We must move forward from here and make sure that Scotland stands tall and is taken seriously. If this comes around again, it's our children who will be leading the charge. I've said before and I'll reiterate, to be part of a movement such as the Yes campaign has been invigorating and inspiring. For a brief moment it felt like revolution and it felt good. I've no doubt that this is just the beginning of something much bigger. Alba gu bráth.
