A better Scotland is possible. Across every aspect of life in Scotland – housing, inequality, life expectancy, health, education, crime, sectarianism, localism and more – we all know that a better Scotland is possible. And then there’s Trident. And the Bedroom Tax. And the Democratic Deficit. And on and on it goes.
Scotia Nova is a collection of poetry addressing social and political issues in Scotland.
Newly updated following the result of the referendum, it is an ambitious and inspiring attempt to raise public interest and awareness. Change is still possible, as is a better Scotland.
He's one of the ones that your probably could feel vaguely sorry for. He'll end up being hauled in by the jobcentre and sent to do work experience in Poundland. and he'll not even be any good at that. Nah, I'm only joking about feeling sorry for him. Of course these predictions are based on a flat Scotland wide trend (and must have a plus or minus a few points for accuracy), and we vote in very different constituencies, so I guess everything is to play for. I wonder what the hell they think there is to be gained from costing "hard working families up and down the country" £1. 54 for the dubious pleasure of a load of garbage. I can't imagine it doing them any good at all. I think I'd be inclined to take it to Labour HQ and ask for the money. I think the Royal Mail must put a card through the door, and you've to arrange to be in, or you have to collect it. Well at the collection point someone had received his missive and told other people in the queue. Seemingly people refused to accept it. Return to sender. There'll be a wheen of "return to sender" , envelopes of tripe heading back the slabber HQ. ( that'll be in London). Our local candidate, for the soon to be jobless, was knocking doors Saturday morning, never came near my door. I think the YES stickers on my windows, van, Arlene's car and the SNP poster on the door, may have put her off. I was just wondering where you'd got to Niko. where's that old reprobate, Niko. Nah, I'm joking. To be honest, I just can't possibly believe that the SNP will overturn 40 Labour seats, and 10 Liberals ones, and wipe out the Tories. It just doesn't happen like that. Only ever a couple of seats change hands. There is no doubt that Murphy was a bad bad choice. But even that won't wipe Labour out in Scotland. I still hear people tell me that they are the party of the working man. I suppose if you call the Duke of Westminster "working", they are. £5000 for every foodbank was good. It tugs at the heart strings, but the trouble was that London didn't know anything about it, and it's them who would have to find the money. But I believe they will do something. Maybe promise to ban the DWP in Scotland, or give every hard working family up and down the country £1,000. Doesn't. Source: Munguin's Republic

Alistair Findlay, author of the acclaimed Shale Voices, takes a measured look at those three most important facets of life - sex, death, and of course football. 'Football has never been a science so much as a heartbeat away from a sclaf, an unlucky bobble, catastrophe - a bit like Sex and Death - and thus a suitable case for poetry.' - ALISTAIR FINDLAY Showing great individuality, energy and wit, Findlay creates 'elegies - with edge' in this accessible and uncompromising collection. With his ear for natural human expression and appetite for life, he succeeds in crafting poetry teeming with both humanity and humour. His poems bridge the gap between perceptions of 'high' and popular culture, and tackle with rare insight the breadth of human experience, both sacred and profane.
