Scottish nationalism will be a historic thing, taught in schools to explain where the Scottish republic came from.

It will also be used to teach children the difference between pernicious nationalism of empire and exceptionalism and aspiration of a people for a national vehicle of self expression.

But in the end, Scottish nationalism has no value in itself, and can’t be used—as British nationalism is—to rile people up and get votes by populists.

#IndyRef2 ends nationalism and starts Scotland.

My son was born with Congenital Cytomegalovirus, better known as .

It poses a risk to unborn children & can lead to hearing loss & disability.

If caught early in pregnancy, treatment can reduce risks.

The NHS don't test for it. This NEEDS to change.

I'm waiting on my Scot Gov Petition to go live. In meantime, can the community do me a favour & share this.

It's illogical they don't test for a condition were the effects can be lessened by early diagnosis.

Let’s give our kids a great future let’s give Scotland the future it’s history commands .
