It’s great to see Scot’s like you and I arrange this yesterday, I think it’s just the start. It is said 1,000+ were in the march yesterday in Glasgow. Many on Social Media questioned the numbers in a way of saying ‘Low turn out’ And they do have a point on just yesterday, but like I say I truly believe this is the start. This will build and build more as we reach the Scottish General Election in 2016, should the SNP clear the decks again I think these marches will only grow and spread. It is VITAL in the Scottish General Election we get over the current 50% that voted SNP on May 7th this year. This is a slow steady rise from the 45% last December till May 7th 50% I did however ask ‘SNP threatens to call another independence referendum – Do we have over 50% <Click) Not everyone was so pleased about the numbers who marched, I am sharing this not thinking this, I think 1,000+ is a great start to what will become 1,000 times bigger in a few years
In the 8 months between each date, September 14th 2015 to May 7th 2015 the SNP gained 5% more. This could maybe be 10% now and JUST enough to free us tomorrow if we had a referendum. I stick to my guns when I say we must wait till 2020 <Click) Because if we have one too early and lose, we lose another referendum till my two Daughters aged 5 and 6 years old are my age, 40 years old, so we must wait! In 8 months we gained 5% so where will be in 4 and a half years? I get this thrown back at me all the time when I say “From 2014 to 2020 we gain 6 years of youthful yes voters and sadly lose many over 65’s who voted 70% NO by the time we reach the year 2020” I can be certain when I say I will be 1 parent down by the time 2020 arrives, but that is life for us all, a reality we must respect. If we TRULY want to be free for our kids and for 100 years from now for our kids, kids then we must be patient Scotland. This is only the start……….

MORE than a thousand pro-independence supporters took to the streets today to march through Glasgow and send a message to Westminster that they will continue the fight to go it alone. The public procession started at 11am in Kelvingrove Park and continued to Glasgow Green.
Organiser Neil Mackay said: “The purpose of the event is straightforward, we are going to take to the streets to show our determined support and desire for Scotland to be independent and to make a clear statement to both Westminster and Holyrood that we want independence for Scotland as soon as is possible and we are going to sustainably march for independence at regular intervals until this is realised.
“This march has been organised by ordinary Scots, not political parties, and it will be fused with a broad diversity of Scottish culture and political persuasions. Everyone is welcome who supports an independent Scotland.” There was also a pipe band and drumming groups along with countless other musicians laying on entertainment for those taking part in the march.
