Labour Branch Office to Elect 10th Manager in 22yrs – It is a Futile Exercise

The Labour Party in Scotland attracts and deserves ridicule. It pretends to be an autonomous organisation able to decide its own policies and strategy but in reality, it is a mere poodle of its master in London obediently carrying out orders best suited to the British Unionists. In a rare moment of political lucidity the former Scottish Labour Party leader Johann Lamont, a British Unionist, felt compelled by years of London’s overbearing interference in her attempts to save the sinking Scottish Labour ship, to label the Scottish party as no more than a “branch office”. She was the branch office’s […]

HMS Britain is Sinking – Launch Scottish Independence Lifeboat Urgently

The British Union is near to extinction. It hangs by a thread and within three weeks of a very uncertain year I state with confidence the exploitative entity called the UK will not survive 2021. Britain is in the process of disintegration. The Union Jack flag of imperial domination, referred to as the ‘Butcher’s Apron’ by millions who have suffered from the colonial rule, brutality, spilt blood, and resources theft, which is its trademark, will celebrate the demise of the once colossal power which used to own and control two thirds of the earth’s surface. Events today and over recent […]

British Gas Fire Scheme Must Be Defeated – No Going Back to Victorian Era

The last five days have witnessed socially distanced picket lines across the UK and a wave of social media solidarity in support of the 7,000 gas engineers and call centre workers compelled to strike against the unacceptable, repugnant, and Victorian era employment practices of the UK’s biggest gas company.

Senate Riot Exposed Deeply Divided America – Foreign Meddling Must Stop

Like millions across the world, I was engrossed by the images broadcast by CNN and other mainstream media last night of the US Capitol building, the seat of American democracy, being invaded, vandalised, and its elected political occupants threatened. The Trump mob were intimidating, vicious and violent. Some form of chemical agent was sprayed on police officers guarding the steps and entrance to the building and many reports suggest some of the mob were armed. This assault on the Senate building and chamber halted a meeting and forced Senators, their staff and office workers to flee in fear and/or lie […]

Assange Decision is Right but Truth Remains Denied – Keep Fighting

The US government attempt to have Julian Assange extradited to America to face 18 counts of criminality under the 1917 Espionage Act has been rejected in a ruling running to one hundred and thirty-one pages and four hundred and ten paragraphs. I am glad but not happy. Pleased but not content. It is the right decision but for the wrong reasons. In essence it is a cop out which rejects six of the seven grounds presented by Assange’s defence team.
