The Tories new welfare policy is the most disgusting and malicious thing I have seen yet. The yes side in the referendum warned this would happen, but we were dismissed as scaremongers. Well I hate to say I told you so.

This is not the sort of country I want to live in. I don’t want to point fingers at No voters, I absolutely respect the outcome of the referendum, but I resent being stuck in yet another period of austerity where the poorest parts of Scotland are to be hit hardest. I hope no voters are still able to look themselves in the mirror, because if I was them, I certainly couldn’t.

Anonymous said: How do you feel about the referendum result? I know you were so passionate about it? But have you joined a party like the SNP, I hear they are now the third largest party in the UK with over 43,000 members.

I was devastated Friday and Saturday, truly heartbroken. At the moment, I am actually pretty angry about it. I mean, we are the only nation in history that has democratically voted away its independence. It’s shameful in a way. Although I do have hope. Scotland has changed, the different pro independence groups are re-grouping and organizing. Tens of thousands of the newly politicised people of Scotland have been joining pro-independence parties, its phenomenal.

I have been a member of the SNP for over a year now, but never did anything with it. But today I’ve signed up to be a member of the local general election team next year, I want to make sure the Labour party in Scotland are brought down and wiped out.

Yes it is true, the SNP membership has increased in the last 3 days from 26,000 up past 43,000 at last count. Exciting stuff.

An appeal to my fellow Yes Supporters.

It’s been a tough couple of days, we were close to achieving a better Scotland, but we didn’t get there, yet were so close. We should all be proud of the work we have done, what we have achieved so far. And some of you may feel more demoralized after the First Minister announced he was stepping down in November, as I know a lot of activists were inspired by his example. But on Monday, we must dust ourselves off and organize. The scenes at George Square last night of Fascist Unionist bigots rioting, assaulting people, burning the saltire, throwing Nazi salutes everywhere, show that we are needed more than ever. We can not give legitimacy to these groups and allow them to poison the spirit of hope we have built up over these last 2 years.

We must now also organize against the Unionist parties who have already broken their ‘Vow’ as we predicted they would. There was supposed to be a motion in Parliament yesterday to begin the process of more devolution, it never happened, and the programme for more powers has already been blocked, the promise didn’t even last 24 hours. We must now show them that we will not forgive or forget this betrayal and will hold them to account on the streets, in meetings and at the Ballot box.

The Labour Party in Scotland has also broken their word, and must be brought down democratically, they represent no one anymore and are an utter disgrace. We must hold them to account by our activism and our votes and show them that Scotland will not be taken for granted anymore.

I therefore urge all of you to think about joining the SNP, SSP or Greens. And maybe also the Common Weal who is meeting soon to plan the next move. The Radical Independence movement is holding a conference on the 22nd November in Glasgow to organize and plan, so think about joining these groups. Join community groups, volunteer your time for political causes etc, don’t slip back into the shadows.

We the 45%, the 1.6 million who supported independence can not wait for a new Scotland anymore, we have to build it ourselves by organizing and getting active.

The democratic fight back starts now.

Kizzy, I am so incandescent with rage, shame and embarrassment. Fucking disgusting what is happening in Glasgow. Plus the Labour party has already broken their promises.

We have been fucking shafted royally.

So Unionist Loyalists are burning the saltire, doing Nazi salutes and violently chasing away yes supporters from George Square in Glasgow.

Is this what we voted No for?

Shut up about the outcome, I don’t want to hear it. Didn’t vote, no opinion, end of story.

I’m getting really uneasy and very angry actually, seeing the mounting evidence of ballot tampering at the counts across Scotland, which was caught by BBC and Sky cameras. I’m not saying there is some blanket conspiracy to ensure a NO victory. But it is absolutely unacceptable that such things were taking place, and not even queried.

weweregods yeah man, I have like 0 confidence that anything will get past tory backbenchers and the House of Lords, but regardless it doesn’t change the fact that the underlining story of the referendum is basically “William Hague to organise devolved powers for English Ministers” like no, fuck off, this is our time to mourn/shine, don’t shit all over our parade.

I predict that the plans will stall, or be watered down so much they are not worth implementing. This will cause real pressure against Westminster and could cause radical change up here. Also remember the possibility of an EU referendum. If Scotland is taken out of the EU against its wishes, then there will be a demand for a 2nd referendum and then we will leave to vote.
