Please America Do the Right Thing on Nov 3rd

Unprecedented numbers of US voters are not waiting for the 3rd November election day to cast their votes. Heeding medical advice to avoid crowded polling stations and taking advantage of the postal ballot for safer voting, more than 26 million have already declared who they want to occupy the White House in the next four years. With opinion polls suggesting that early voters are much more likely to be Democrats than Republicans (62% to 28%) it is surely good news for those of us who agree with Noam Chomsky that Trump deserves to be voted out of office. Surely a […]

Independence Support Reaches Record Level – A Sense of Urgency Required

The latest opinion poll on support for independence has reported its findings on Wednesday and they make grim reading for the dwindling band of British state apologists. Since the beginning of 2020 eleven separate opinion polls in succession have recorded majority support for independence at anywhere between 51% to 55%. Now the twelfth has rocked the shaky Westminster foundations and set off alarm bells throughout unionist ranks. Conducted by the reputable Ipsos/Mori for Scottish Television support for an independent Scotland now stands at an unprecedented 58%.

Watching well heeled, well paid and pompous Tories on the news all morning trying to convince us there is no money left in the cookie jar to support millions of workers facing the sack due to increased Covid19 restrictions made me think about nuclear weapons and the narrow contrived parameters of political discourse in the UK.

Or how these politicians expect us to believe ‘we are all in it together’ while they get a £3,300 wage increase to […]

A ground-breaking and professionally researched study has been published today which offers a new, progressive, and inclusive approach to deal with the societal scourge of poverty pay and grotesque income inequality which the Covid19 Pandemic has highlighted and accentuated even more. The 99% were made to pay for the last crisis with a decade of austerity cuts and falling living standards. The 2008 economic crash was caused by greedy and irresponsible bankers but paid for by ordinary workers, pensioners, and the poor. This new Report from Autonomy and the High Pay Centre argues the top 1% should pay for the […]

Unionist Hypocrites Face 2nd Vote Exposure – AFI Group Is Game Changer

The putrid political opportunism and stinking dollops of hypocrisy from the likes of arch Tory unionist and principle-free Ruth Davidson will have convinced hundreds of thousands even more that the crucial Scottish Parliament election in seven months’ time will be a day of reckoning for these parliamentary imposters. They do nothing more and nothing less than talk Scotland down while picking up a hefty and over generous salary and expenses package from the Scottish Parliament. They sneak into the Parliament via the d’Hondt voting system back door because of the silly ‘two votes SNP’ policy but that access point is […]
