Scared at the prospect of running your own country? Terrified about what the future holds? Haunted by nightmarish visions of deep uncertainty?

The Fear Factor is a series of 6 short films looking at why Scottish people are afraid, very afraid, about what’s in store for their poor wee country.

The series was written and created by film-maker Jack Foster (Precious Few Heroes, Top 10 Unionist Myths), and writer Christopher Silver.

The 2nd instalment of The Fear Factor, ‘Part of the Union’, will be released on Thursday 12th September.

It’s being reported that Anas said live on air that.
“Labour will abolish the bedroom tax”

There will be much gnashing of teeth in Labour HQ (errr! London)

Should be a big story tomorrow today

NS asked him if it will be in their manifesto! He used the Lamont defence —No comment.

Jack Frost nippin’ at your nose? Meet Jack Foster, nippin’ at your NO’s.

Excellent work again Mr Foster.

Mr Sarwar has no manners.

He’s obviously hoping to be Gordon Brewer’s stand-in after he is no longer on the Westminster gravy train post Independence

This could surely be Anas’s ‘Bring it on’ moment – has this been ran past his bosses down south?
Everyone from the Unions, head of councils, charities, BBC, should be on Ed Millibands back now to get this clarified. Can they be given a heads up? Its such a big policy announcement that surely it would have gone out to all of the UK.

Will watch with interest.

And when pressed about the welfare questions, which he refused to answer, he clearly did watch the politic show yesterday where the shadow labour minister for the DWP’s Liam Byrne, when asked by Andrew Neil if the new universal changes are working properly by 2015 would he support then? too which Mr Byrne said “YES”

Asked Gary Robertson this morning about absence of comment on Sarwar and Bedroom Tax.
He replied that I had obviously missed the interview with Liam Byrne YESTERDAY morning on GMS. Anybody know what Byrne said?

Robertson and his bosses know that Sarwar blundered badly and are hoping the story disappears. The BBC in Scotland will not pursue either Sarwar or his so-called leader Lamont on this matter because it will damage the party north of the border when Miliband refuses to endorse Sarwar’s comments.

UK ‘abandoning maritime patrols’

Defence chiefs are being forced to draft in aircraft from Nato allies because they no longer have the ability to patrol Scotland’s seas, it was claimed last night.
France,Norway,C  anada and US planes are being used since the Nimrod was scraped so it is ok for UK to do this,but not Scotland is this another UK dividend for us.
2013-09-06 11:40

What did we think was going to happen when Westminster got rid of Kinloss as an airbase and destroyed the newly built nimrods, around £4 billion pounds worth.

We cant expect the RAF to do its primary job of protecting the maritime routes and coastlines of our country if it does’nt has the planes or airbases to do it.

Did no-one wonder how that Russian fleet got so close to our coastline in 2011 without anyone spotting it ???

And now we are going to need someone else to cover our arse, are you glad Westminster is in charge of our home security – or NOT.

Note: We are part of an Island surely we need to be able to protect the waters round about us

Vote Yes, Vote Scotland.

Ministers have amended their plans for new anti-lobbying laws after charities warned the bill could affect their ability to campaign.

The government has tabled a series of amendments to the legislation and will scrap plans to change the way campaign spending by organisations is defined.

Commons Leader Andrew Lansley said he was “very glad” to meet the concerns of charities and voluntary organisations.…/…
