Wings Over Scotland


Time to get busy

Posted on September 03, 2014 by

All 250,000 copies of the Wee Blue Book have now left the printers and should have reached their destinations, from which they’ll be spread far and wide. Many are already in Yes shops and on street stalls and thousands are in the hands of the public.

wbbinverness

If you’ve got one, please read it and PASS IT ON afterwards – we’ll print truckloads of souvenir editions after a Yes vote, so you don’t need to hang onto it as a keepsake. It’s no good adorning the mantelpiece, it needs to be in front of undecideds and soft No voters. (Or hard ones if you think there’s even a sliver of light in their minds.)

We don’t have a definitive list of where the books can be found – the Yes movement is an organic grassroots network and there’s no way of predicting where they’ll end up after the pallet comes off the printers’ lorry. We’ve shipped boxes to Shetland, Skye, Stornoway and Selkirk and all points in between. (Some not beginning with “S”.)

But we’ll keep you updated when we hear of sightings. The info hotline is our Twitter feed, and you can also keep an eye on the dedicated Wee Blue Facebook page.

Meanwhile, though, there’s other stuff you can do.

bottleflyer

We’ve got tens of thousands of our new flyers available. They’re free (except for a small contribution to postage), and you can order them here.

You can also help us publicise the Wee Blue Book. We’ve already published designs for business cards, and readers have already made their own posters like the one below, which have appeared all over Edinburgh. (Obviously we urge people only to post home-made materials where it is legal to do so.)

We’re not going to take ALL the credit for recent shifts in the polls, of course, but if you study the available evidence the SCIENCE conclusion is inescapable:

coincidence

So let’s keep getting stuff out there, folks. Something’s working.

      “Bob Geldof”

      O/T

      My favourite Geldof story is at the time of Live Aid when most of the African bands were shunted away from London down to a stage in Cornwall. One of the Africans took serious umbrage at this and asked Geldof why they weren’t on the main gig in London.

      Geldof: “Because you don’t sell millions of records.”

      African: “But neither do you, Bob.”

      Probably apochryphal, but I’d love it to be true! 🙂

      The hostage is British. If he was Scottish the ransom would have been paid. Westminster are killing people all over the world. Westminster are responsible for the whole world crisis. Funding and supporting killing and destruction the world over. Funded by UK taxpayers money. The hypocrites are in Westminster. Alcoholics. Fradge, Cameron et al. Alcoholic make poor decisions.

      Regarding the W.B.B , I got my full quota and have already given half to YES Airdrie & Shotts but in the words of Paula Rose I don’t mind spreading a little love .

      If anyone in the Airdrie , Chapelhall , Newarthill and Holytown are desperate for some contact me at mmccabe [at] ea [dot] n-lanark [dot] sch [dot] uk by the weekend as I hope to give all mines away by middle of next week .

      If anyone further away needs some I might be able to meet halfway one night next week .

      Come on ED, tell us what is bigger and better! Who has the bigger vision? We will change the world, not just Westminster.

      I repost the video here and it should be put everywhere.

      I’ve been scratching my head to notice the bookies have increased the odds for a YES vote despite the latest surge in the polls and the momentum with us.

      I’m guessing they believe the big wigs from Westminster coming up and the no doubt ramp up of Project Fear will slap all us wee Jocks back into place!!

      More reason for the odds to get shorter I guess lol 🙂

    29. Squeaky bum time.

      The City clearly believes Scotland is necessary to prop up the economic status quo. But this isn’t just a question of yes or no – the Scottish referendum is an opportunity for the whole UK to force open a debate about our hideously imbalanced economy: its failure to create decent jobs, its hopeless dependency on debt, and above all the damaging impact of the City of London.

      John King.

      beat me to it pal. The uk/gu gap is the most strategic area on earth. It is nato’s job to keep logistics lines open from USA – Europe.

      Even if we did NOT join Nato , the area would be policed by them. It;s a shit scare paricularly when The former ambassador to Nato told us yesterday that we would be a shoe in , And without NUKE too.

      I have a real buzz about me today. At the shop folk walking past Daily Records as they have Darlings face on the front cover. Ask a mate why he grabbed the sun instead of his usual paper and he pointed at Darling and said ” anything that liar has to say i don’t wont to hear”

      YESSERS are everywhere.

      And a wee message to all.

      Stop the petty arguments please. New readers would be put off and we don’t want that. We laugh at trolls not abuse them , It’s the Wingers way. We all want the same thing and thats all that counts. Other than that

      Stu and all who are working to get the WBB out , thank you so much for your effort. You are a shining example of what people power can do. I am “astonished” (sorry) by the amount of DK’s being turned to YES.

      I am really proud to be part of this historical time. My grandbairns will hear me telling them this when they are old enough.

      This is how we won your country back .

The living room is the bit under the stairs. It does, however, boast a ‘roof terrace’. Good buy to let potential – £1300 a month.
      It really is a different world down there.

      @YESGUY
      As Bill Leckie said today, he is voting YES now because when he was a no voter he was thinking about himself not the lives of his son and future generations. Children are the single most important thing here, not pensions, not oil, not whether we use the pound but can we create a better standard of living for those children as an independent country and YES we can.

    43. TD says:

      YESGUY

      I agree with everything you say. The petty bickering on this site by people who should know better does not help us to win more Yes votes and that is all that matters. Self-appointed guardians against trolls often get it completely wrong – I have been a victim of this myself.

      In any debate, there is going to be some disagreement even amongst those who share a common goal. Just because someone has a different perspective to your own does not mean they are a troll – they just have a different perspective.

      Lets do what Stu has asked – leave it to him to decide if someone is a troll or not and he can deal with it. The rest of us should concentrate on getting the WBB out, engaging with people in the workplace, door to door, online and in every other way we can think of. That is what is winning this – not calling each other trolls.

    44. CameronB Brodie says:

      As someone with experience of the logistics involved in producing and distributing the WBB, I would say those responsible did a remarkable job. Especially as this was a one-off and the team were making it up as they went, I imagine.

      There will be means testing, I’ve said it a few folk and also if SLAB get back in – god forbid – council taxes rises will be the 1st thing they will implement.

      Some poor soul at the STV debate seemed to think that a council tax freeze had an effect on NHS spending.

      When canvassing on Sat, we gave an OAP the WBB and he was engaging in conversation when this harridan appeared and was jabbing her finger in the guy’s face -a la Darling – saying don’t you change your vote over and over.

      I think you misundestand. When I say “I have been a victim myself..” what I mean is that I have been accused (although not in so many words) of being a troll. This was because I had expressed an opinion that Salmond’s performance in the first TV debate had disappointed me.

    51. Scotland set for oil bonanza that heralds a new golden age for the North Sea lasting for another century.

      “The prize available to the UK or Scottish Government through unconventional oil and gas could be colossal and as a nation we could be sitting on a fortune of black gold that will last for another century, well after conventional oil and gas runs out. Should the proposal outlined in Denver prove to be viable, then we must grab the opportunity it presents with both hands, prolonging the life of the North Sea as well as creating an oil fund on the scale of the Norwegian oil fund, to serve both this and future generations.”

      When is the next poll out?

      Sorry, I did misunderstand, people are edgy, reds under the bed sort of thing, BT agitators, etc which I can understand.
      Whether Salmond did badly or not is subjective and you are entitled to your opinion as are those that thought Salmond was setting Darling up for the second debate and therefore a success in the first. I certainly wouldn’t have pulled you up on that point.
      As for the record I will never buy that again even if I ran out of toilet paper and the shops had nothing but the record to wipe my backside with.

      The first on took and said thanks, the other said “I don’t want it, I don’t wan’t it”

      I have to say that my disappointment with Salmond in the first debate was an initial reaction. I subsequently changed my mind as I understood the rather clever game he had been playing. However, my opinion as expressed at the time was an honest one and was shared by many including other Wingers.

      Anyone heard about Murphy’s egger today?

      By not following up the egg incident, which, if the culprit was a Yes supporter, could give the No campaign more mileage with which to damage Yes,
      Murphy & No are merely adding to the the very firm suspicion that it was all a set up.

      Indeed, the more I watch the original incident on video, the more un-natural and contrived it looks.

      At least the police actually did something about it which both pleases and surprises me.

      With more details to come after the court appearance today, hopefully, perhaps the backfire will occur. Though I think the steam has run out of this story. And the damage has been done.
      When all this is over, Murphy will be left without a name in Scotland.
      If indeed that has not already happened.

      Just been reading an article supposedly by Carrick and Cumnock MP Sandra Osbourn who got the opportunity to put forward the case for NO in the local press.

      As expected it included the usual scare stories, but it all sounded rather too familiar.

      Googling extracts of the piece showed that rather than being her own words entire sections were just copied verbatim from other articles written by other Labour bods.

    78. McTim says:

      ah, sorry, didn’t see that clarinda beat me to it. Apologies.

    79. Jim says:

      Thank you also McTim.

    80. Quentin Quale says:

      Lookin’ after Number 1, eh, Mr Geldof? I remember when that was an ironic song.

      I had a quick swatch at the Rolls as well, but none of the Facebooks of that name (either spelling) which had piccies looked like the guy, Kirkcaldy or otherwise.

      Ditto for the day before and after (in case rescheduling occurred).

    82. galamcennalath says:

      Geldof. Wiki ” …..recipient of the Man of Peace title which recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to international social justice and peace”.

      They why the Hell isn’t he pro-Indy ? Answer, he’s been reading the gutter press and believes what they say.

    83. Chic McGregor says:

      PS That just means no positive match found of course, not that it isn’t him.

    84. Misteralz says:

      O/T, as my posts usually are, but I’ve just been sent an invite to a conference about servicing the Atlantic frontier. It’s in early October. They can’t keep a lid on it and it’s going to be mucking fassive…

    85. Jim says:

      @galamcennalath
      Yep and if the papers did their job properly, unbiased then Yes would be a certainty months ago.

    86. CameronB Brodie says:

      I don’t think he was computer literate when we shared a flat. Not that that means much.

    87. Quentin Quale says:

      And there it is – the one I’ve been waiting for. On Herald website “War veteran: Yes vote would be a betrayal of fallen WW11 comrades”.
      With that they have now exhausted every scare story. Or have they? Disnae matter, the WBB is out there countering every argument.

    88. Nana Smith says:

      My neighbour is off down to Glasgow tomorrow on a bus with the bowlers, I printed off the wwb and she is passing it round on the journey.

      Lots of dk’s going so the wwb might be just the ticket!

    89. Footsoldier says:

      When out canvassing, 95% of the “don’t know” doors we knock have never heard of the WBB. For those who take our leaflet and give us feedback, it is like an awakening for them.

      The one thing I cannot understand why this was not done earlier by Yes etc.

      Last night in the debate from Aberdeen the accusation that the SNP voted to let Thatcher in was not challenged. Why?

    90. CameronB Brodie says:

      The other giveaway, of course, was there was no response from Murphy’s security team. No response whatsoever. The supposed Yes supporter was able to take his time lobbing several eggs, before calming walking up to Murphy and patting him on he shoulder. I certainly wouldn’t employ that security company.

    91. YESGUY says:

      Cynical Highlander

      Superb read my man. So when they offer the currency union … should we say YES. and play hard ball.

      We have all the cards, this is easy. Thanks for that , posted it on comments pages at the telegraph and guardian. lets see how they manage to re buff this.

      Big Cheezy grin stuck on my face today.

      Two weeks and the Scots are having a party.

      OH YA BEAUTY

    92. manandboy says:

      What I refuse to take from No is that none of their spokespeople,
      from Cameron through Osborne, Darling, Brown, Milliband,
      the Alexanders, Carmichael, Lamont, Sarwar, Curran & Baillie, and all the way down to the bottom, to Ruth Davidson and Kezia Dugdale, and no, I haven’t missed out Willie Rennie by mistake,
      all of them have failed completely to show Scotland any respect for this nation’s right to self-determination.

      Instead, they are so full of their own personal political ambitions for UK fame and fortune on the WM gravy train, which is what passes for political life these days, they can only pour contempt on the legitimate aspirations of Scotland to a better life as an independent country.

      They disgust me. They alienate me. They repel me.

      I owe it to my family – past, present and yet to come –
      and I owe it to myself and to all fellow Scots,
      to vote for Scottish Independence.

      YES. Forever.

    93. YESGUY says:

      Spot On Jim and TD and Dram..

      Wee bit of strain showing, and who can blame anyone really. Abuse i for the other side. We YESSERS and WINGERS don’t do abuse. We laugh . or ignore. There is no defence for that.

      I think this will be the LONGEST two weeks in our lives. Time to take up Yoga or deep breathing and fancy candles Thanks.

    94. IcySpark says:

      O/T

      I posted the wonderful Jeane Freeman interview with Andrew Neil video on Facebook and it’s going a bit mental

    95. call me dave says:

      Andrew Neil. Daily politics show. NHS in Scotland.

      Starts at 42m:40s in enjoy!

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04gvjj8/daily-politics-04092014

    96. YESGUY says:

      Icy.

      Boy does that lassie Jeane Freeman no make you feel all proud. Takes the spin and turns it on its head.

      brilliant stuff Ma’am. Your a credit to WFI and the whole of Scotland.

      Seems all the drivel and scares are worth nothing now. If the record comes out with a YES lead poll i’ll no sleep till the 19th. getting a wee bit trembly today. feels magic.

    97. Lesley-Anne says:

      I have to admit CMD, watching all that pontificating anti nationalism, supporting nationalism this time, look at France shite just turns my stomach and makes me even MORE convinced that we WILL win and I will keep doing whatever little I can to ensure victory on the 19th! 😛

    98. ElaineS says:

      Got ours today Stu! Much appreciated! I had a visit from a policeman who I was talking over my concerns of postal fraud and though he said obviously they can’t talk about their opinions on Indy on duty, he did say he hadn’t really read much into it. Before he left he said he would download the wee blue book since it was time he read up on Indy. Lets hope he encourages others at Fife Police to do same:)

    99. Les McDonald says:

      For many years our household have been Express readers and unionists. Over the last few months their campaign to discredit the independence movement through deceit, misinformation and omission, which was initially disconcerting, has now reached fever pitch and is totally unacceptable to anyone with a modicum of common sense. Suffice to say their warped campaign has been very successful – the whole family will now vote yes, the Express is banned from our home, and we now buy only “news”papers worthy of the name instead of rags.

    100. colin adam says:

      i am a taxi driver and spreading the word about this website, as in 1974,and 79 ,Westminster are trying to pull the wool over our eyes again, thank god for the internet and this website , keep up the good work people lets get this yes vote done !!!!

    101. Will Podmore says:

      Simon Jenkins just wrote in the Guardian, “after independence, … the reality must be public sector belt tightening. Scotland’s budget would lose Treasury underpinning. Its borrowing would be at risk. Its ministers would be on their mettle. Financial crisis would lead to Greek-style austerity …” True – breaking away from Britain would be bad for Scotland. It is not fearmongering to warn a family member against walking off a cliff.

    102. Graeme Purves says:

      People were asking for copies of the Wee Blue Book when I was canvassing in Bonnington yesterday!
