About us

PLEASE SCROLL TO BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR MOST RECENT ARTICLE

In 2014, Scots voted 55-45 to remain in the UK. Many of us voted ‘No’ to independence because we were told – by UK politicians and EU officials alike – that remaining within the UK was our only hope of remaining EU citizens. Some of us actually were those very politicians! As it’s turned out, exactly the opposite was true. With Brexit, the pre-Brexit economic and cultural arguments against Scottish independence, which some of us accepted, have been completely undermined. England has gone off on a journey to the political right and to the margins of Europe. Scots have to choose between that English Tory vision for the UK, and a social democratic future in Europe through Scottish independence.

Soon, ‘FromNotoYes.Scot‘ will be live at a new site. Our aim is to play our own small part in helping move the figure for Scots supporting Independence to well over 50%. We believe this will in turn help to assure Scottish independence in Europe before the UK as we know it leaves the EU.

We’ll post at this page until the new site is up. Please read us and do let us have your comments beneath each piece which we’ll cross-post here. We’re also organising events in support of helping people move from NO to YES – do let us know if you’d like to be involved.

For now, here’s some food for thought. All articles are also available for comment here or by clicking on each title.
