Indy ref two brings us to pieces today the first by Alan Knight a video with written comment comment on the subject of Ruth Davidson or as I like to think of the elusive Ruth Davidson. Unless of course it’s something that bigs her up.

The second piece is also a video this time of Alex Salmon’s new talk show.

The good news blog, Talking up Scotland, has a piece on Scotland being the most productive part of the UK outside of, yes you guessed it, London and the south.

A link to a landmark study which suggests Tory austerity is responsible for 120,000 deaths.

The third piece is a rather interesting look at how street names may affect how you view yourself. For instance anyone living in Union Square, how did you vote in the 2014 referendum?

Talking up Scotland final piece for today asks whether the Scottish Tories will try to steal the credit for overturning the ridiculous situation where the police and fire brigade in Scotland are the only ones in the UK expected to pay VAT.
