An Open Letter to Nicola Sturgeon.

I'm still healing (but that's okay).

What will your legacy be? 2016 was a tumultuous year for politics. It was a year of desperate campaigns by opposing sides that’s shaken our nation to the core. 2016 was a year that thrust us, somewhat unwilling into the unknown. It was a year of confusion, of questions unanswered, of fear at what lies ahead. Ultimately, it was a year of change.

  1. Powerful words from a young woman facing difficulties indeed. Perhaps a fully-independent Scotland would be the answer? Somehow, I doubt that. Behind all the photos of the Highlands, The Royal Mile, and Pipers eating haggis, lie real-life deep rooted social problems involving drug use, AIDS, alcoholism, and domestic violence. Some of the worst housing conditions in Europe, and little hope for young working-class people.

    But will they?
    Best wishes, Pete.
