The Scottish poet Alec Finlay has spent six months reading through tens of thousands of emails and letters written by ordinary Scots to Lord Smith in the wake of last year’s independence referendum, turning them into a 64-page opus which will be published exactly a year on from the historic vote.

My boyfriend and someday will be my husband to be lives in Accra, Ghana.
And I am in Las Vegas Nevada so that is very far I thank you all for helping me stay strong in this long distance relationship. There is an 11,800 mile distance between me and my boyfriend but the distance is not an obstacle for us to celebrate our passion for each other.
