Not a vision but necessity

 

 a vision of a prosperous, crime free, safe country, free of bigotry and false news will take 20 years. Many things will be in white paper but must involve,  unity, inclusivness, and reform in all political areas.

2 - remove child poverty

3 - remove food banks

4 - eradicate homelessness 

5 - remove weapons of mass destruction

Historic Scotland, Media, Internet and TV, technology & inovation, Children's futures,  Banking and economy.

8 - SNP need to eventualy commit new political elections to ensure parliament is not a 1 party dictatorship but hold the balance against Unionists which will still exist.

11 - promote Scotlands potential worldwide for immigration and investment.

18 - 3 further National holidays on 6th April and 30th November plus Independence Day.

Potential projects post independence below

- new national stadium between Glasgow and Edinburgh with National sports academy. 

- Skiing and winter sports complex

- promote Gleneagles for the world's 5th golf Major

If Scotland are 25% as successful as Dubia in a post oil economy then we will do well.
