“Dreaming with our eyes wide open”

It fels like the stabilisers are about to be taken off and there is eager anticipation of a new campaign for independence to be let loose across the nation. A new campaign for sure, this time one much more pushed by the grassroots rather than lead by politicians. There is plentiful debate about when the campaign should start, plentiful discussion about how and who we are all allowed to talk to… some of which creates interesting twitter scuffles. This is all healthy, if not all useful, we are gearing up, we are preparing our thoughts, our arguments, testing out our opinions and figuring out what roles we all can play in the coming months. As a nation, for or against independence, we are so much more politically engaged, so much more awake than before – and that for me is a major difference since 2014.

We all can play a part here. This time it is our referendum.

So what type of country do we want, what type of country do we have the potential to create? What can the people of Scotland bring to the delivery of a prosperous country and what type of vision can we create?

One thing that we have all noticed is that we are a welcoming society. The social experiment of Brexit, the push of the anti-immigration and “othering” agenda that is taking place in England, causing fear and a huge increase in hate crime isn’t being echoed in Scotland. The tone set by Nicola Sturgeon in the days after the Brexit result of a Scotland for everyone is still there.
