IT was great to see the work that the Yes group in Skye is doing in bringing Alba Party and SNP activists together to campaign for independence.

Well done to Ian Blackford for keeping his eyes on the prize and putting country before party and showing the positive campaign benefits of a Scotland United approach in practice.

One observation I would make – and forgive me, as it may be different in the metropolitan leafy west ends of Glasgow and Edinburgh – but I have never once seen the Green Party campaign for independence or take part in any local Yes groups anywhere in Scotland.

The SNP and Alba Party are campaigning for independence every week. It’s time for the Green Party to start cutting the mustard on the ground if they want to keep benefitting from independence supporters’ votes.
