In this issue, the SSP’s national workplace organiser Richie Venton asks why, when it comes to reporting the stance of trade unionists on the referendum, the picture is consciously distorted in the mainstream media by announcements of national union leaderships declaring their adherence to Better Together? Now an SSP member, former Labour MP and MSP John McAllion looks the Labour Party, and explains why singing The Red Flag won’t hide Labour’s attacks on the poor. SSP nation co-spokesperson Colin Fox has been to debate the socialist case for Scottish independence at the Oxford Union – we bring you his speech. And Voice editor Ken Ferguson notes the sidelining of Better Together’s Alistair Darling, and dim signs of a change in tone from the No campaign, who may have realised, perhaps a tad too late, that their ‘negative, negative, negative’ approach has been a complete disaster for them.

As an ex pat living in Australia,and having been a trade union member all my working life,I am looking forward to seeing an independent socialist Scotland.
