Robin McAlpine: We're in the wrong place, going the wrong direction. Things have to change.
Common Weal Director Robin McAlpine says that mistakes have been made which have left the independence movement in a much weaker position than it should be – but there’s still time to turn it around

But what he does next, and how successful that move is, could be critical to the party’s political fortunes.
The end of 'constructive ambiguity'
