Book Description

Seasoned and well-liked Scottish politician, Jim Sillars, puts the case for a programme that is both radical and feasible in the context of the Scottish independence referendum; the printed version had to be reprinted before the publication date; potential sales very high.


Product Description

About the Author

Jim Sillars, born in 1937, started his political career when he joined the Fire Brigade. He became the Labour MP for South Ayrshire in 1970 and worked tirelessly for the establishment of a Scottish Assembly. He split from the Labour Party in 1976 to help form the Scottish Labour Party (SLP). Having lost his seat in 1979, he worked in South-East Asia before returning to Westminster in the Govan by-election as an SNP MP. The Govan seat was lost in 1992, and he worked as Assistant General Secretary at the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce in London. Sillars continues to write a column for Holyrood magazine and occasional articles for various newspapers. He is married to the independent MSP Margo MacDonald and is an articulate spokesman for the cause of socialism and independence.

Excellent! If every Scot could read this the possibilities for an Independent Scotland would excite and ignite the voters' interest. How dire is the the future of the Scottish people under the present political regime!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful but old fashioned 2 Mar. 2014
By Robert
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A worthwhile contribution from a great populist - some inaccuracies and some implausible ideas don't mar the force of it. Identification of small and medium businesses as the backbone of the economy and therefore the importance of promoting them - rare in current political discourse where the interests of utility and finance oligopolies tend to be confused with market solution. too much reliance on the man from the ministry as the solution.
