    Hi John, I found this article on CommonSpace on the same subject :-

    As commenting in your later article to Ludo, I am again struck by the difference in tone between two articles on the same subject. They could not be more contrasting. In my opinion although CommonSpace/Common Weal claim they are strongly in favour of Independence, they also appear to be very anti-SNP, seem to resent much that the Scottish Government achieve and seldom give it credit for doing anything good. With friends like these who needs enemies. Thank goodness for your efforts. You restore my faith that we will be a successful country after Independence.
