LGBT Rights Are Human Rights – Boycotting Brunei is Appropriate but Don’t Forget Saudi Arabia

By Tommy Sheridan Love is the most powerful and beautiful emotion in our world. Whether our loving relationships are between two consenting adults of the same sex or the opposite sex is irrelevant. Men who are in love with other men and women who are in love with other women are as entitled to legal protection and recognition in law as those of us in heterosexual relationships. Being gay is not a life choice but a natural and human emotion to be nurtured and supported as part of the rich tapestry of life and humanity. Gay and lesbian rights are […]

Venezuela Vs America – Support the Legal Government Not the Illegal Rogue Nation

By Tommy Sheridan 9th April 2019 You are mugged in the street by a gang of powerful and well organised thugs who rob you of your money and personal possessions. You are knocked to the ground and subjected to violent blows to your body and head that almost render you unconscious. You notice other citizens observe the assault but they appear too frightened to intervene. The attackers are big and powerful. They also shout loudly that you deserve to be attacked as they aim further blows at you. There is a look of fear, confusion and apprehension in the faces […]

Shoot Corbyn Video is Appalling and Outrageous – Dishonourable Discharges Must Follow

By Tommy Sheridan 5th April 2019 Often viewing the major social media platforms of Facebook and Twitter requires a high degree of scepticism and caution as posts, pictures and stories are so easily manufactured with modern manipulation apps that you could be duped into believing that Elvis is still alive and well doing Karaoke in Tenerife.

THIRTY YEARS AGO THATCHER FOISTED HER POLL TAX ON SCOTLAND – WE FOUGHT HER AND WON

By Tommy Sheridan 1st April 2019 The 30th anniversary of Mrs Thatcher’s hated poll tax is upon us. On April 1st 1989 the policy which was officially called the Community Charge but forever more is referred to as the Poll Tax was introduced in Scotland ahead of a roll out in England and Wales on 1st April 1990. It was never a UK wide roll out as the new tax was not introduced in Northern Ireland. The country of Scotland which had rejected Thatcher in 1979, 1983 and 1987 was chosen as the proverbial Guinea Pig for her Flagship Policy […]

SNP Must Stop Trying to Save Britain and Instead Resolve to Dissolve Britain

By Tommy Sheridan 29th March 2019 I am surely not the only advocate of independence for Scotland who has now reached frustration overload in the continuing shenanigans over Brexit. I appreciate the SNP is a mainstream social democratic political party which feels obliged to play the Westminster parlour games but whenever I hear the expression ‘putting country before party’ and ‘acting in the national interest’ I want to scream. Westminster stands for and represents the British Establishment in all its blood soaked, hypocritical and privilege defending glory. The UK is not a country. The UK is a voluntary political ‘union […]
