"Every second we spend licking our wounds is a second we lose for the fight. And fight we must. And fight we will. "

Robin is one of Scotland's most ardent and passionate activists, and the founder of Common Weal, where nationalists and unionists share visions for a better country.

It asks the simple question,  'if you could do anything, what would you do?'. 

Common Weal rejects "40 years of me-first politics, a survival-of-the-richest, winner-takes-all mentality which left us all in second place".

It campaigns for a new politics of sharing more, of investing, of creativity and strengthening our assets like the welfare state.

Since the 'no' vote on Scottish independence, Robin has worked on maintaining a movement for progressive, radical change in Scotland galvanised the referendum.
