The Calendar was to have featured a positive argument for the Union on each page but unfortunately the writing team failed to get beyond the first week of January.
We are hoping to substitute a commemorative first day cover postage stamp but are awaiting further copy for the reverse of the stamp before proceeding.

Join us at the launch of the latest book under the "Scottish Scaremonger" imprint;
Dearie Me! ( The search for Scotland's Black Hole )
Fictional author M. Hamish Glen will be available to sign copies of his latest book which traces the history of thevsearch for Scotland's legendary fiscal black hole.
The full story of the development of the Large Haud-On Colluder is explored as successive Westminster governments and Scottish Secretaries laboured against all the odds to prove the existence of the Twigs Bunkum Particle.
All the drama of the search for the Twigs Bunkum Particle is captured as time and again the discovery of a Black Hole was announced only for the "breakthrough" to be debunked within hours.
Although the search continues to this day despite increasing evidence that there is actually no black hole at all Dearie Me! ( The search for Scotland's Black Hole ) is an invaluable companion for all students of one of Scotland's most enduring myths.
Book launch date : TBC

Worried about postal costs after independence?
Concerned that you won't be able to send letters to your cousin in Chelsea or your auntie in Ascot?
The Scaremonger has a new service available which will offer reassurance and deliver the all important certainty you need. Our new "tartan mail" scheme allows you to pre-plan postage for your letters and packages for the day after independence. Just like at present where the costs of UK postage in the future are unknown our "tartan mail" ensures that you can't know the future cost of postage in an independent Scotland with the same degree of uncertainty.
Sign up to our "tartan mail" service and we'll send you fully redeemable* vouchers which we can guarantee you may be able to use to exchange for stamps**
£1.00 buys a voucher worth £1.00. After independence you can return your voucher to the Scaremonger "tartan mail" exchange centre*** and we will send you the equivalent value of postage stamps. No fuss, no complicated forms to fill in.
Postage cost planning made simple!
*subject to terms and conditions yet to be confirmed
**cost of postage stamps may vary
***a 15% handling charge will be applied

Special Offer from Union Oil & Gas
A limited quantity of our extra-special North Sea oil is unexpectedly available to purchase. Union North Sea oil has a number of unique properties which make it an unmissable opportunity. Union oil is extracted in "barely-there" condition from below the waters of the North Sea and arrives on shore in Scotland as virtually worthless sludge. The local people actually pay us to take it off their hands! Union Oil & Gas take this pointless material and apply our secret industrial process* (patent pending) transforming it into valuable crude oil - just like that extracted in countries like Norway, Venezuela or the Middle east. Union can then sell the oil on the open market and make a substantial profit on our investment of £0.00.
This is an amazing investment which has been returning substantial profits for over 40 years so be sure to apply today!*
*during our process the "Scottish oil" is renamed as "UK oil"....er ...that's it.
* investment applicants must not be resident in the following countries : Scotland, Alba, Caledonia

Organizing a fishing expedition to the Continent? The don't forget to visit our Country Sports department, where our experienced assistant Glen 'The Eel' Campbell will always be ready to go that extra mile in his efforts to discover the unvarnished truth about Scotland's EU membership in the event that the country votes 'Yes' to "leaving the UK". Ever wondered what the Latvian foreign minister's thoughts are on the subject? Or his Irish equivalent? Don't worry. Glen's been touring the capital cities of Europe and asking the right loaded questions of those foreign politicians. He'll push the boat out in his efforts to make your trip enjoyable by ensuring that you have the right gear, permits and passport information for when Scotland is cast fully adrift in the stormy seas of doubt and uncertainty by the Yes Campaign's unprincipled efforts to rip us out of Britain, divorcing us from friends and family, poisoning our rivers and laying waste to the land.

* The No campaign will co-opt the Mayan elders as campaign advisers - their invaluable experience in doom-laden predictions will dovetail perfectly with our own balanced view of the dangers of Separation.
* The spirit of Nostradamus combined with the sage advice of UK Treasury mandarins will provide peer-reviewed evidence that Scotland's economy will immediately collapse and its people be condemned to eternal penury in the case of a Yes vote in 2014.
* The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will be employed for Better Together leaflet delivery (with a contract extension option for post-vote retribution).
