🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With the front page of today's @ScotNational in mind, by sheer coincidence, I bought a book last week called 'Addresses Against Incorporating Union 1706-1707'. The book cover.
Apparently, Glasgow was divided on the Union and it 'stimulated unusual levels of protest'. It also states that 'strong anti-union sentiment' was found amongst Glasgow artisans.
The artisans demonstrated literacy and political engagement by attaching papers reading 'No incorporating union' to their hats.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 @theSNP is now officially the second biggest political party in the UK. You can join thousands of people across Scotland helping to build a better nation:
👨 👱‍♀️ This also means that around 3% of the electorate in Scotland are members of @theSNP. A politically engaged society is good for society as a whole.
🔍 Based on UK electorate (2017), if a UK-wide party had same proportion of electorate as @theSNP, it would have around 1,384,440 members. This is 2.5 times the size of the UK Labour Party.

The mind boggles as to why some news broadcasters shut down on people sharing their news coverage. It’s not a good look, particularly for a public broadcaster.
