i can imagine how you feel Tt. i'm not the most politically minded individual, but I don't think it's as simple as people deliberating choosing policies that dismantle the NHS and mean people have to rely on food banks to eat. there will always be inequality sadly. I think that's inevitable. even in egalitarian states, some people are more equal than others. I agree there are degrees of equality and means of achieving greater fairness, but i'm afraid I don't really believe the parties when they make their campaign promises. the big questions are rarely addressed - I guess it isn't as simple as it all seems. don't know what i'm trying to say - just that I don't think it is an either / or. it's now a case of working with the decision that was taken to achieve the best for Scotland. harness that positive energy. it would be such a shame for it all to go to waste because the outcome was "NO".
JG. - sounds awful set up. You are worth far more than that and perhaps this is a good thing ultimately as you can now find something else somewhere else. I know how hard it is. I went through hell with my work last year. Sometimes it takes confronting the situation head on. It seems like it is the worst thing ever. But in fact it is a good thing in the long run.
