BREAKING: 52% of Scots back independence // Un 52% dos escoceses a favor da independencia #Indyref2 #BrexitShambles #Escocia #Scotland
No 52% por cento dos escoceses que apoian a independencia atópanse un 20% de votantes do NON no referendo de 2014 e un grande apoio de votantes potencialmente laboristas.
Estes datos supoñen un durísimo golpe aos Tories escoceses que fixeron a súa oposición a un segundo referendo de independencia un mantra durante anos.
Majority of people in Scotland now want #Indyref2 and would vote for independence, according to new poll in @HolyroodDaily - attempts by the Tories to block Scotland’s right to choose our own future are undemocratic and unsustainable. https://t.co/Pft4esilCM— Nicola Sturgeon (@NicolaSturgeon) August 5, 2019

¿Qué pasa con el rugby en la USC? Entrevista con el Presidente de la SRC #Rugby #Galicia #Compostela #USC
Veño de falar con José Pérez de Vallejo, Presidente da sociedade de Rugby de Compostela (SRC - Santiago Rugby Club)
Dende esta páxina adherimonos ao apoio deste deporte en Compostela. Non tén sentido inaugurar con bombo e prato un campo de rugbi na cidade e comprometerse en promovelo para aos sete meses descartar este deporte por razóns pouco claras.
De xeito espontáneo iniciouse unha campaña para exigirlle á USC que rectifique a súa decisión de finiquitar o #rugby da súa oferta para o próximo curso universitario

Scotland’s Democratic Future: Shaping Scotland’s Citizens’ Assembly, hosted by Electoral Reform Society Scotland #ScotlandisNow #Scotland #Politics #CitizensAssembly #8thJuly
The Scottish Government has proposed a Citizens’ Assembly on Scotland’s future, providing an opportunity for greater citizen engagement on issues facing the country. A Citizens’ Assembly in Scotland provides the opportunity to democratically work through complex constitutional issues in a way that fosters consensus and understanding rather than division in society. But what is a Citizens' Assembly?
This panel will be a chance to share and learn about how citizens’ assemblies work in general, and how Scotland’s will function in particular.
Joanna Cherry MP QC
Dr Jess Garland (Electoral Reform Society)
Dr Oliver Escobar (University of Edinburgh)
Professor David Farrell (Research leader of the Irish Citizens' Assembly)
Louise Caldwell (Irish Citizens' Assembly member)
Lesley Riddoch (Journalist)
Hosted by Edinburgh University and the Electoral Reform Society.

The Spanish Veto Myth: The failure of a far right conspiracy - #TheSpanishVetoMyth #Indyref2 #EUMembership #BetterTogetherLies
In Spain, where a party manifesto can be ignored after any election, the idea of Salmond doing what he had promised was not only a surprise but a novelty.
In 2012, when it became crystal clear that Scotland was to decide its future in an exemplary campaign, many Spanish politicians, especially from the Popular Party, started to act like they always do: interfering in external affairs.
The Catalan case was also growing and some thought that it would be a very bad idea to allow a referendum of independence in Scotland. So, I remember well the first article in El Confidencial suggesting that there had been talks between civil servants and diplomatic sources about trying to stop that referendum and the sharing of their concerns with the UK Government.
Very soon the game of whether a Spanish veto would be likely or unlikely was adopted by the British Media and it got worse when the referendum was about to take place. We all remember that malicious intervention by Mr. Barroso on the Marr Show or the so badly translated interview of Mr. Rajoy in El País, playing with words without clarifying whether Spain would veto Scotland´s EU membership or not. It was all nonsense but it served to convince enough people to stop Scotland winning its independent status.
I don´t remember though any mention of the BBC or the MSM asking questions or getting clear official answers about this issue. I don´t remember any British journalist speaking directly with the Spanish Minister and asking him what the official position was.
If those journalists had done their job and had watched the sessions in the Spanish Congress, they could have clarified what the real answer was. But instead they played the card of confusion because they knew the issue of EU membership was an essential one.
Mr. González Pons has been the famous face of the Spanish Veto Myth. Ruth Davidson was never asked about her secret meetings with the Popular Party and their joint international campaign against independence.
Ruth Davidson didn´t just participate in these meetings but positively encouraged external interference in a very democratic process.
Now we see the polemic of the Spanish Consul. He didn´t say anything offensive or false. He was doing what a representative of the Spanish State must do: clarify the official position already shared by not one but three different Foreign Ministers (Mr. Margallo, Mr. Dastis and the latest, Mr. Borrell).
The Spanish Consul, Mr. Vecino said to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo:
“Contrary to what has been reported I have never made any political management without the knowledge of the Minister and the Embassy whom I have kept punctually informed and in detail such that there has never been the least reproach or criticism from either of them”
And he continued: “On the contrary, collaboration on political issues has always been excellent with both, as proven by the numerous e-mails exchanged”
When the reaction to something written by the Spanish Consul is followed by an article about the problems of the Consulate and his destitution, something clearly stinks.
We didn´t have to wait very long to know what had happened.
The Spanish newspaper Vox Populi explained that it was a phone call and a complaint from the Foreign Office that had caused the immediate cessation of the Consul.
It was the Herald Scotland where this entire nasty episode all started. The Herald Scotland was incapable of rectifying an article published with the last comment from González Pons; in fact, the Herald was incapable of showing how politically insignificant the Spanish MEP is. He is not in government. González Pons is no one.
The Herald, once again, published this non-news not for the importance of what González Pons was saying but to damage the now super strong case of the Scottish Government in Europe. What poor journalism and toxic propaganda against the interests of the people of Scotland. Shame on them!
Everyone knows in Spain that the Scottish people were lied to about the Spanish Veto. Everyone knows that Europe looks with sweetness towards the Scottish case.
The only politician who has shown seriousness and respect and has been coherent is the First Minister of Scotland. She is very well considered all over the World and I have no doubt she will be seen as a true leader in further negotiations with the EU.
Could Spain try to veto Scotland? No way! In a no-deal Brexit scenario Scotland will be very welcome in the EU. And remember, Brussels will be able to openly support an independent Scotland once the UK is out of the EU.
I´ve said this several times but Spain really owes the people of Scotland a sincere and formal apology. The damage caused by the Popular Party members is obvious and well known. They don´t understand democracy, they don´t respect the rules.
González Pons and others have been changing their position (sometimes yes, sometimes no) and their statements depending on their own party interests and they have had the support of many journalists incapable of doing their job of checking the information. It looks like they are acting as a platform for certain organizations. We have seen something very similar with Ruth Davidson in Scotland.
If they think they can “Catalanize” the Scottish case, they should think again.
First of all because the Spanish conservative politicians have achieved the highest levels of corruption and deterioration and they have been trying to hide this by creating an enormous problem with the Catalan process.
Secondly, we all know Spain has a written Constitution that has made it impossible to present any alternatives as realistic. It was the overall majority government of the Popular Party that didn´t respect either the Catalan Statute or the Spanish Constitution and all their strategy has caused their electoral debacle and the improvement of the pro-independence Catalan parties. We have a saying in Galicia: “Se non queres caldo, sete tazas” (“If you don´t want broth, well then - seven bowls full”)
And finally, we are now waiting for the sentence of the Supreme Court for the Catalan leaders, the political prisoners. The shadow of no confidence in the Spanish judiciary is very long. I can´t see Scots Law and the Judges in Scotland playing that card; that would be, indeed, the end of the Union.
Meanwhile as I’m writing this article, I see Boris Johnson could become the new Tory Prime Minister making the no-deal Brexit scenario more likely. Dear Scotland, run, run as fast as you can. Your friends in Europe will be supporting you as always. Go for it and start a new chapter of your admirable history. Grasp the thistle, Scotland. Now is the time!
