Book proposes 101 key ideas for the next term of the Scottish Parliament
COMMON WEAL’S book of ideas 2016/21 will be officially published on 7 October.
Over the course of the next week, Bella Caledonia will be publishing some of the 101 key ideas in the book to give you a flavour. Click here to read the first one about micro, small and medium size manufacturing in Scotland.
The focus of the book is simple. There’s a Scottish election in May 2016 which will elect a five-year government; so what could that government do over those five years using the powers the Scottish Parliament has (or is likely to have) to create an ‘all of us first’ society?
The book attempts to end the excuse that we can’t do things differently in Scotland; that we don’t have the power to change things, that ‘aye been’ is somehow good enough, and that competent management is the extent of our hopes and aspirations.
Demand ideas–because ideas shape the future. And Scotland and its people really do deserve a better future.
