The London Productivity Miracle Is An Illusion

"At a quick glance it looks like a London job adds almost exactly three times as much value to the UK economy as a whole as a South Scotland job. And let's be honest, a quick glance is often taken as plenty to dismiss the economics of independence in the media. But there is a problem, which is that the 'agglomeration effect' is measured without any reference to the many other factors which influence GVA. The Sheffield University report strips those factors out one by one to assess what like-for-like productivity would be."

The GERS Data Is Ludicrous

"What GERS is asking us to believe is that with 8.2% of the UK population Scotland created between 54% and 60% of the UK deficit last year, depending on the basis used. And my answer is very simple: no it did not."

Scottish English Border Information

"Scotland’s Gateways is a team of volunteers from across the south of Scotland, who have worked for many months to create a source of information about the Scotland/England border, including how it works now and how it may work in the future. This is a very important topic which tends to be either ignored, or misrepresented. We will address this topic, filling this gap with a reliable resource. We hope to provide reassurance about many day to day issues affecting those who live, work, trade or travel across the border."
