Has The Second Scottish Enlightenment Begun?

"As England’s poor, disabled and sick, twist in the wind of the former home secretary’s hostile environment and its storm of welfare and policing cuts, something is happening in Scotland even though we can step only partly out of her deadly embrace.

It’s a gentle shower of data which I think collects in the mind to suggest that something is happening here which we can begin to celebrate."
