Scotland: Yes or No?Scotland: Yes or No? by Angel-Heart279
The future of Scotland, my home, was given to us. We had it in our hands and we held it for a moment. After two years of listening, of thinking, of debating it all came down to two little words.
Yes or No.
The 'Yes Scotland' campaign told Scotland facts. The 'Better Together' campaign told us more. Each side said that the others lied, the other believed in a fantasy -a dream world.
We were told we would lose things like our NHS health care, our banks, our news papers, our jobs and even our way of life!
Then we were told that our NHS was under attack from England's plans to privatise our NHS, that our banks were already in England and run by English businessmen, our news papers were printed in England anyway except the odd one or two, we would create new jobs and opportunities and that our only change to our life style would be who we answered to -Holyrood instead of Westminster.

When Ethel Met Walter - Alone Till I Met YouWhen Ethel Met Walter - Alone Till I Met You by Shirley-Agnew-Art
Alone in a strange unfamiliar place,
far from all that I know well,
How I will cope I cannot tell,
I hope my life here won't be hell,
Just then I saw you in your chair,
looking so lost and lonely over there,
The only thing I could think to do,
was to go and say hello to you,
You turned to me with eyes so blue,
but they held so much sadness,
and confusion too,
I knew right then and there,
of you I had to take good care,
That I would always be here for you,
and I was right for your heart is true,
Now there is nothing for you I wouldn't do,
I know how much you love and care,
for you are always there for me too,
I will always be here by your side,
My feelings for you I never will hide,
they give me such a warm feeling deep inside,
You are my best friend, the love of my life,
and perhaps one day I will be your wife
