This is not a pencil.

This is a club which we can wield against a vile, pernicious ‘One Nation’ British nationalist ideology that menaces our public services, our distinctive political culture and our essential democratic institutions.

This is not a pencil.

This is a lever with which Scotland will extricate itself from an anachronistic, dysfunctional, corrupt political union in the sincere hope of creating a better association with our neighbours. A partnership freely negotiated as equals in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

This is not a pencil.

This is the dibber which we will use to plant the seeds of a better, fairer, greener nation and a society shaped by the needs, priorities and aspirations of Scotland’s people.

This is not a pencil.

This is the stake that will support this sapling nation as it takes root and grows and blooms.

This is not a pencil.

This is the shield with which we will defend this nation against any new tyranny of the few over the many.

This is not a pencil.

    Stirring piece Peter , which I believe should be used by the SNP in one of their party broadcasts voiced over by the likes of David Hayman or Elaine C Smith

    That is a great piece Peter. Would you consider letting our Ullapool Yes group make it into an A4 leaflet to encourage people to vote?
