Banning The Sun Is The Right Thing To Do – Well Done Livingston

I love football. It is my favourite sport. I’ve played it all my life and still turn out for charity games and a weekly 7 a side game. I am very deceiving on the park because I’m actually slower than I look. My generous waistline and massive bum doesn’t help when up against younger and fitter players but that failing body is the responsibility of my feet. They constantly take me into local fish and chip shops and the cream cake stands in Greggs the bakers. Naughty feet. My team is the Famous Glasgow Celtic. My late dad used to […]

Today We Remember A Hero – Commandante Che Guevara “I know you’ve come to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man”.

(CHE GUEVARA – A Revolutionary Life; Anderson J.L., Bantam Press 1997 p739) Those were the last words of a revolutionary who more than any other epitomises the truism that ‘you may kill the dreamer but you can never kill the dream’. Che Guevara’s life was snuffed out by a semi-automatic rifle held at point blank range that riddled his already wounded body with bullets at approximately 1.10pm on October 9th 1967. Che had been shot twice in his leg and captured the previous day in La Higuera, Vallegrande, high in the hills of Bolivia. He was held captive in a […]

OVER 100,000 MARCH IN EDINBURGH – THERE IS AN APPETITE FOR INDYREF2

I’m still buzzing as I write this column. I’m not long back from Edinburgh and I was so proud and inspired to march alongside well over 100,000 other supporters of independence for Scotland. We filled our capital city today with men, women and children from all walks of life and scores of dugs as well. Sheldon is a kick in the arse off a horse and marched with purpose while Hamish was there with proud owner and SNP MP Brendan O’Hara and displayed impeccable manners and temperament. It was a pleasure to walk alongside them from Johnstone Terrace near to […]

Opportunity Knocks. Brexit Means Exit from the Abusive British Union

This column can exclusively reveal why Theresa May failed to turn up for a series of interviews with the UK’s major broadcasters yesterday prompting an unprecedented joint formal complaint to Downing Street about the shameful lack of access and public scrutiny of her actions https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/uk-news/2018/10/02/broadcasters-issue-formal-complaint-to-downing-street-over-lack-of-may-interviews/ Mrs May was escorted to Birmingham Central Police Station in Snowhill Queensway and subjected to a stringent set of controlled drug tests after suspicions were raised by a couple of alert undercover officers that the PM, known for her ‘naughty’ anti-farmer tendency to run through fields of wheat (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2017/06/05/theresa-may-admits-running-fields-wheat-naughtiest-thing-ever/ ) may have been under the […]

Two Yorkshiremen With Different Views On Scottish Democracy

All political leaders face issues and decisions which define their legacy. There are always times when their ability to truly lead are put to the test. Richard Leonard has hardly been in his job of Scottish Leader of the British Labour Party but already his inadequacy for the job is plain for all to see. He is a relatively nice guy, I remember him from Stirling University Labour Club 37 years ago, but being nice is never enough to lead in the rough and tumble of politics. His performances at weekly Question Time debates in the Scottish Parliament have been […]
