Fiona Outdoors logo My independent guide to the best of Scotland outdoors

I’ve started a new blog. Off at a wee tangent!

Written by Fiona May 30 2011

You might imagine that I took a degree in outdoors pursuits or fitness or sports science or whatever. Maybe if I had my time again I might choose to do that kind of degree but aged 24 I decided to become a Politics student. I simply wanted to learn more about political history and the workings of politics. I loved my degree and graduated with a 2:1 BA Politics Hons.

I’ve never taken my politics any further than a vote and a few friendly-ish discussions about politics. But I do like to listen and read well-judged chat about politics.

Recently I’ve become fascinated by the Scottish independence issue. I want to cut through the spin and make a judged view on what is good, or not so good, for Scotland.

So I’ve started a blog called Convince Me On Independence This is not a place for pro or anti Nationalistic vitriol. It’s a place for evidence, well researched opinion and fact about the future of Scotland as part of the union or as independent. I’d welcome your comment or offers of guest blogs. Please do take a look.

* Don’t worry I’ll still be running this FionaOutdoors blog, too!
