Rangers Anti-Racist Statements Merit Support – Even from Celtic Fans

After writing this column I will most definitely be checking the sky for two moons. Maybe even hell has frozen over. I am a very proud and passionate supporter of Glasgow Celtic football club and I have written of my love for them often. Our fiercest rivals for many decades are another Glasgow team called Glasgow Rangers. Singing their praises is alien to me. However, credit where it is due. The current managing director and several current players have issued stinging comments recently condemning racism and hatred and promoting equality. This after facing online abuse from so-called football fans, some […]

Russian Hacking & Election Interference Claims Belong in Flat Earth Folder

Absurd and ridiculous propositions are not difficult to float when you have the backing of a compliant and pliable mainstream media jam-packed with useful idiots on exorbitant salaries paid to manipulate opinions. UK governments can effectively invent stories and have them magically transformed into facts through the medium of principle-free broadcast, and newspaper editors who dictate what constitutes news and what doesn’t. The latest pathetic offering is the alleged Russian hacking of science laboratories working on a Covid19 vaccine spiced up with accusations that Russia interfered with the 2019 General Election. On both counts the evidence to back up such […]

War Crimes in Yemen are Regular Not ‘Isolated’ – Stop Saudi Arms Sales

War Crimes in Yemen are Regular Not ‘Isolated’ – Stop Saudi Arms Sales  The decision of the UK Government to openly resume massive armaments sales to the Saudi Arabia regime is shameful, shabby, and scandalous.   Shameful because the world and its dog knows these weapons are being used to indiscriminately massacre civilians in Yemen and destroy essential infrastructure like hospitals, schools, and food factories in direct violation of international humanitarian law. Literally thousands of civilians have been incinerated by the bombs, missiles and other weaponry supplied to the Saudi regime primarily by the USA and UK despite the illegal, inhumane, and immoral use these […]

Tactical Independence Voting Can Wipe Out the Unionists – Let’s Do It

The first skirmishes in what is sure to be a robust and passionate debate within the Scottish independence movement about how best to use the voting system next May to further the Indy cause have kicked off in earnest. Current SNP MP and former SNP MSP and Justice Minister, Kenny McAskill, has raised his head above the parapet and treated the movement like adults by admitting what is obvious to all but the willfully blind. Voting SNP in both the Constituency and Regional List ballots at next May’s Holyrood election is not just a wasted vote it also helps the […]

Tory Lord Supports Renationalising Elderly Care – What About You Labour?

It is rare indeed for me to welcome and applaud a contribution from a Tory peer to the debate around health and social care provision across the UK. But in these unprecedented times even those normally ideologically opposed to state provision of essential services appear willing to accept the moral principle and economic imperative of a nationalised care service integrated within our National Health Service, instead of the ragged, inadequate and botched private sector provision which fails our elderly citizens every day. Writing in today’s Guardian newspaper Tory appointed Lord Ros Altmann admits care homes being “nationalised” could be the […]
