The EU referendum

VoteRemainToday the United Kingdom votes on whether to stay part of the European Union.

Which ever side you are on I believe it is important to make your voice heard and vote in the referendum. For me it comes down to unity and working together to create something better.

But don’t listen to me, I can hardly draw a star! Be sure to do your own research make your vote count, you have until 10pm on Thursday 23rd June.

Neighbours divided as Scotland goes to the polls

DividedNeighboursOn the eve of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Edinburgh neighbours find themselves on opposing sides of the political fence.

With less than fifteen hours to go before Scotland’s residents begin vote on whether or not Scotland splits from the rest of United Kingdom and becomes an independent country the result looks set to be very close.


As you walk through Edinburgh it’s people, cars, windows and work places are plastered with either ‘Yes’ or ‘No thanks’ stickers. With passions running high on both sides and a record 97% of the electorate expected to vote it has been hard to have a conversation lately without discussing the possible outcomes of Friday’s decision.


From speaking to supporters on both sides the common thread is that everyone wants the best for Scotland, so whichever outcome we get on Friday morning lets hope that is what we get.
