To-day is the seventh anniversary of Scotland's independence vote. It is a bittersweet memory.

The weeks and months leading up to the vote were some of the best times of my life. I made so many new friends. The possibility of making a better place felt within our grasp.

However, even though the vote was a resounding Yes in my home area, overall we lost by a narrow margin.

It was the best of times, and the worst of times.

Let's do it again.

@fitheach Yes, let's do it again.
Here's my blog post from the day after in 2014

@fitheach As an Englishperson I feel I really can't apologise enough for the past... or the present... and probably the future too.

You don't need to apologise. The referendum was always about Scotland regaining control of its own affairs, nothing else. Plenty of English born people, living in Scotland, voted Yes.

Besides, you are only responsible for the things you do, or don't do. You can't be responsible for things done by other people a long time ago.
