an expat Scot, who created a basic version of this site for my own daily summary
of Scottish political stories, then realised other people may find it useful:
you want a quick summary of daily developments in Scottish politics, elections
and the repercussions of the Referendum
you are like me and only have a short time each day to look at the new stories
and want an easy way to read only the ones which really interest you, from
you are someone who likes to make comments on political stories - most of
the links here go to pages you can leave comments on.
of the links will inevitably be duplicates, as I feature other good aggregators,
and multiple Google news searches.
is also true of the Archive, which is just a copy of what appears on the site
for a particular day.
selection and arrangement of sources may appear strange and random, until you
realise all sources, newspaper sites, commentary and blogs have a point of view:
unionist or nationalist, even the newspaper and mass media sites which like
to still portray themselves as not taking sides. The Yes/No, nationalist/unionist
divide is the main fault line in Scottish politics, rather than the old left/right
divide. As every source takes one side or the other, there is no point separating
traditional media and blogs in the listings, since no news source is more 'objective'
than any other.
you want to recommend a source with an RSS feed (most blogs have one by default)
send it to me at the address above. It must be mainly about Scottish politics
to be considered.
