Scotland forms a crucial part of our Armed Forces which should not be jeopardised by rushed cuts or a rush to the exit from the U.K. Defence jobs are vital to the Scottish economy and yet independence puts thousands of jobs at risk.
I define poetry as celebration and confrontation. When we witness something, are we responsible for what we witness? That's an on-going existential question.

Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
