Munguin hard at work in his luxurious
penthouse suite office today.
I want to say a massive thank you to Kay from YES Marchmont for sending Munguin this Bu Chòir badge after I mentioned on Twitter that he would like one.
You know, some people are saying that the referendum has split Scotland, but I'm not so sure. Scotland, like everywhere else, has always been split in so many ways... Rangers, Celtic; West Coast, East Coast; Glasgow, Edinburgh; Hibs, Hearts; Labour, Liberal (well, we are talking about history), Conservative, SNP.
So Yes, No is just something else that people disagree over. Big deal.
Much more importantly, this campaign has energised people; folk who never thought for a second about politics are engaged. We have even managed to get 16 years old involved, because, traditionally, that is the age of adulthood in Scotland.
I have no idea what it is like for No campaigners but Yes people are coming together in from all corners of the community, rich and poor, posh and not so posh, and the atmosphere is electric. At meetings in town halls, churches, working men's clubs and community centres all over the country people have gathered to hear speakers like Nicola Sturgeon, Craig Murray, Jim Sillars, Chris Law, Stewart Hosie and so many others...even on Friday nights. That's something that's never happened in my memory.
I've never been to a BT meeting, many of them seem to be closed events, but I have no reason to believe that they will not be similar,a t least from the point of view that they are meeting of like minded people.
Whatever the result we will go on living here. And we will go on living with our differences. There will still be east and west; there will still be Labour and SNP, and probably some Conservatives; there will still be Hibs and Hearts.
But there will also be millions of people who are much more politically aware.
Whoever wins will not get an easy ride.
A politically energised society is one that won't just do the British thing and shrug its shoulders when the usual politicians' promises are broken.
So whether it is iScotland's fairer more decent society equitable society, or Brown's semi federalism... (with, seemingly, education and health taken back UK wide) remember that what you promise now will be expected.
This new Scotland is not going back in the box.
