Mr ‘Less than One Percent’ Johnson will be last PM of the UK

By Tommy Sheridan Boris Johnson is Prime Minister of the UK in name only. He possesses not a morsel, a crumb or a grain of democratic legitimacy or political credibility. Of the numerous empty soundbites and meaningless waffle he has uttered over the past forty eight hours surely his “we are going to restore trust in our democracy” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-leader-pm/highlights-uks-johnson-promises-brexit-on-oct-31-no-ifs-or-buts-idUSKCN1UJ20W drivel takes the biscuit. Democracy? Away and look up a definition Mr ‘Less Than One Percent’. The word ‘democracy’ has its origins in the Greek language. It combines two shorter words: ‘demos‘ meaning whole citizen living within a particular city-state and […]

Alan Turing was Treated Shamefully – Tolerance and Love Must Conquer

By Tommy Sheridan The name Alan Turing might not be familiar in every household yet his contribution to the Second World War effort is now widely accepted as extraordinary and essential. He applied his brilliant and unique mathematical mind to breaking the secret codes used for important communications by the Nazi war command. His work on the Enigma codebreaking machine is now the stuff of legend and films. Without him the Nazis would have proved even more difficult to defeat and may even have successfully defended the Western Front. Some historians and politicians have suggested his contribution to undermining the […]

Jeremy Corbyn is attacked because he is Anti-Capitalist not Anti-Semitic

It was sixty minutes of unsubstantiated allegations, disgruntled gripes, ridiculous verbal insults and pathetic accusations. Most of the dross was delivered with the sincerity of tears rolling down a crocodile’s scaly skin as it drags its latest unsuspecting prey underwater to be devoured. All of it presented by a jackal in human form with a track-record of Corbyn bashing that should have disqualified him from ever being commissioned by a ‘public service’ broadcaster to present the programme. I’m talking about Panorama’s ‘Is Labour Anti-Semitic?’ and the former Sun journalist John Ware who presented it, no doubt drawing on his vehemently […]

Murdoch Media Mafia above the Law – We Need Leveson Two

The dark soul of UK Incorporated was exposed in glorious fashion yet again yesterday in the contrasting responses from the political elites in Westminster to two big stories. An Ambassador’s candid memos describing the Donald Trump Government as “inept”, “dysfunctional”, “insecure” and “clumsy” https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jul/08/pm-has-full-faith-in-kim-darroch-but-rejects-his-view-of-trump led to politicians stampeding to available microphones to condemn the leaks and demand urgent and criminal investigations to establish the culprit. Whoever is found guilty will be condemned to 10 years solitary confinement in the Tower of London with a daily diet of only bread and water or forced to proof read Theresa May’s inevitable memoirs […]

We Can Still Rise Now and Be A Nation Again – Bannockburn Spirit Lives On

This Saturday, 22nd June, thousands of ordinary Scots will assemble and march to Bannockburn Heritage Centre in central Scotland to pay their respects to, remember and honour the patriots who fought and died for Scotland’s freedom 705 years ago in the historic Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. It is right and fitting to remember that battle not to glorify war and the inevitable bloodshed which war entails but as a constant reminder that Scotland was once a free and independent nation and many ordinary Scots were prepared to give their lives to secure and defend that freedom. Scotland’s unofficial national […]
