Power Grab via @PhantomPower14 #Devolution #Scotland #Brexit #ToryGov #EU

POWER GRAB - The Threat to Scottish Democracy. 20 years after devolution and the creation its own Parliament, Scotland now faces its biggest challenge in the form of Brexit and a hard-right UK Tory Govt determined to centralise power.

Former MP, MSP and Presiding Officer, George Reid, was involved in the 1979 devolution vote won by Yes but lost on a controversial technicality. George Reid played a key role in overseeing the building of the new Holyrood Parliament. The parliament was symbolic of a changing, more powerful nation. It came under constant attack during its difficult birth and almost threatened the devolution process itself. George reflects on the Parliament building, its inner workings and how, against the odds, Holyrood has now become the centre of political life in Scotland. As a gradualist, George sees opportunities in a hard Brexit for a realisation amongst the Scottish public and political parties that independence in Europe is indeed the next natural step for Scotland.
Alan Bissett is a playwright, author and activist who played a leading role in the independence referendum of 2014. During that campaign, Alan made a prediction of events following a No vote that proved uncannily accurate: https://youtu.be/OdgFeQJsNS8 A Tory Govt heading for a hard Brexit Scotland never voted for has created a new situation. Alan considers how this threat is already playing out and the future dangers posed to Scotland by a Tory UK Govt off the EU leash. The stakes have never been higher. The power grab is underway.

ME + EU via @PhantomPower14 #Brexit #Scotland #UK #EUCitizen #EUcitizen4Indy

The views of a Scot in the EU and an EU National in Scotland. It's been well over a year since the Brexit vote and there is still no clarity on the status of the thousands of EU citizens working and living in Scotland or the thousands of Scots living and working in the EU. Rosie from Glasgow now works as a musician in Gothenburg, Sweden. Ellen from Bonn, Germany now works as a computer games tester in Glasgow. They share their stories, fears and ideas on what might and should happen next in Scotland's relationship with the EU - a decision 62% of Scots voted against and which formed a central argument in the 2014 independence referendum.

Ellen is now Creative Director of EU Citizens for an independent Scotland and you can find support and more about the organisation here:
