On Saturday we took a Yes Scotland stall to the Scottish Labour History Conference in Glasgow University. We heard a lively series of discussions on the history of Scotland’s labour movement and trade unionists. We found no other stalls – the No campaign had not sent representatives. And, encouragingly, we were not only warmly welcomed to the event but, in a room of Labour activists and academics, found a warm reception to our case for Yes.
