Okay, how many people here are Scottish, how many of you are already in a leftist group and who is not?(or other UK if you would be up for travel) Got a little meet up or at least connect online idea cooking up. Would any of you be interested? Maybe set up a discord and talk until trust is established or something. It would be good to get a leftypol UK discord where we can share information about activism actually in our areas and stuff. I get the feeling many people would be up for taking part in things but aren't really aware of whats going on. I for one have had to put in a concerted effort to get involved in groups, don't know about other people. Anyway, thoughts?

Are you for staying in the UK, or separating the lines.
separating the lines. I honestly think the best chance for a socialist UK is Scotland breaking off. We are pretty red up here, so we can try to consolidate that, then it would spread to England (in an ideal world, i see very little chance of this actually happening) In the none ideal world, I would still prefer we broke off, its easier to organise 5 million people against a 5 million person sized state apparatus and focus on local organising than it is to combat the same things in a nation of 65 million people
I'm also Scottish, Also in favour of Independence. Not a member of any party, because all the major socialist parties here are just the Scottish branches of English parties, who are vehemently unionist.
And yes, I would be interested in some sort of meetup.
I'm just worried that a Scottish independence would mean a Scotland more interested in staying in the EU than purely independent.
where you are you? I live in Glasgow but am regularly in Edinburgh
We'd get another ref in the EU most likely if we left the UK
Renfrewshire, I can be in Glasgow in 15-20 minutes, easily.
You got discord?
Why are Tories so much hotter than Nationalists?
I have an account, but rarely use it, do you have a server?
other UK folks get in
no in fact, only Scottish get in for now. Where my /Alba/nians at?

I'm Scottish and would be interested. Also are you that blackflag poster that I was talking to on that livestream chat last night?
