Scotland's Push for Independence

As the mid-80s approached, post-punk was discarded for electronica. The Blue Niles first two albums of soulful synth-ballads, A Walk Across The Rooftop and Hats, are acknowledged as classics. The shimmering keyboards of Cocteau Twins still sound beautiful, with the ethereal voice of Liz Fraser. Indeed, the 80s were when Scottish female acts pushed their way to the front, starting with the No1 hit Japanese Boy in 1981 by Aneka. She was followed by Claire Grogan, star of Gregorys Girl, whose band Altered Images rode the infectious vibes of Happy Birthday to No2. And Strawberry Switchblade took hair to ridiculous heights but had the pop hooks to go with it. Sheena Easton made it in the States with a Bond theme and a duet with Prince but blotted her copybook at a Glasgows festival by announcing: Its good to be home! in an American accent.

The M People lead singer, who also plays Glasgow's Clyde Auditorium on October 24, has been warming up her voice since being told to stay silent for six weeks in 2012. The 48-year-old revealed: "This is the first time I have performed for an audience this size since my op last year so I am a bit nervous. "I had a little bit of a hiccup when I had to have an op on my voice. A singer who can't sing is a big obstacle. "I've been lucky and been blessed and God is good. I had a fantastic surgeon who told me not to worry and that all would work out and it has. "I followed his instructions to the letter.

"The birth of a baby is a great occasion for any family, and I congratulate the Royal Family on this happy event," he told the Scotland on Sunday newspaper. "(But) as to the possibility of another King George, it is important to remember that true democracy is based on the sovereignty of the people rather than the sovereignty of any monarch." If Scotland voted for independence in September next year, another vote should be held to decide if it wants to retain the monarchy or choose an elected head of state, he said, adding that he would vote to cut ties with Britain's royal family. The SNP restated its view on Sunday that the monarchy should be retained in any independent Scotland, while a spokesman for the campaign to keep Scotland inside Britain said Canavan's words had exposed the true face of Scottish nationalism and showed how divided the pro-independence movement was. Most opinion polls show around a third of Scots would vote for independence, while almost half would elect to remain part of Britain. A large number of voters remain undecided however.

Prince George Should Not Be King Of Scotland, Says 'Yes Scotland' Chairman Dennis Canavan

I will also vote for independence. In London, all three major political parties are united in opposing Scotlands independence, and they have launched a public-relations campaign called Better Together to persuade the Scots not to leave. The campaign has been seen as trying to scare the Scots, harping on questions such as: would Scots retain http://rivkamatti.livejournal.com/60144.html access to the British state-run medical system? Would Scots with a heart attack be prevented from crossing the border to this link seek help at the nearest hospital? Security is also on the chopping block. Scots are a civilized, gentle, prosperous, educated people, while also providing a large number of British troops. These could remain in the British forces or be inherited by Scotland. But an independent Scotland wouldnt have jobs for many soldiers and would need naval and air forces.

Scotlands Airshow returns to the National Museum of Flight in East Fortune for the 16th year, with organisers promising a fantastic line-up of entertainment. A supersonic RAF Typhoon, a Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, a Bell UH1 Huey helicopter, Sea King chopper and a Second World War Swordfish torpedo bomber biplane from the Royal Naval Historical Flight are among the star turns. One http://vibenitarahi.sosblogs.com/The-first-blog-b1/Training-Before-The-Matches-As-Well-As-Insights-To-Each-Contestant-b1-p121.htm of the highlights, however, will be on the ground where former Concorde pilot Tony Yule and world record-breaking balloonist Brian Jones who completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth with co-pilot Bertrand Piccard in 1999 will share their experiences with visitors. Mr Jones will give a talk as part of celebrations to mark 230 years since the first public demonstration of people travelling in a balloon. One of Scotlands leading balloon pilots, Graeme Houston, who also works as a safari pilot in Africa, will showcase his Muller Wiseman balloon at the event. Other aerial highlights include the Team Breitling Wingwalkers performing manoeuvres and handstands while strapped to the top wings of their Boeing Stearman biplanes, as well as aerobatic displays from the SWIP team and the Trig aerobatic team. Steve McLean, the museums general manager, will this year be overseeing his first airshow, which is expected to attract 10,000 visitors.

Scotland?s Airshow: Crowds set for flight museum

A critic of hereditary monarch, Canavan's views sits in contrast with SNP leader Alec Salmond who has publically stated that separation would not lead to the abolition of the Queens role as head of state, despite pressure from Yes Scotland campaigners who have called for a second referendum to decide the future role of the British monarch in an independent Scotland. Speaking to The Scotsman , Canavan said: As to the possibility of another King George, it is important to remember that true democracy is based on the sovereignty of the people rather than the sovereignty of any monarch, adding: In an independent Scotland, the people of Scotland should therefore be given an early opportunity to decide whether they want to retain the monarchy or choose an elected head of state. Following the Labour MP's comments, an SNP spokesman said: "The policy of the SNP and Scottish Government is clear that the Queen will be head of state in an independent Scotland, as part of a continuing social union with the rest of the UK - that will be the position if Scotland votes Yes, and indeed all of the main parties in Scotland support the Queen as our head of state. He said: "I believe the overwhelming majority of Scots support the monarchy just as people do across the UK and just as there, this support has grown stronger in recent years. Making the future of the monarchy a central theme of the independence referendum seems to me to be foolhardy." A spokesman for Yes Scotland said their campaign was "a broad church with many different views including those that are for a monarchy and those that are not".
