Don’t Close Down Private Schools – Open Them Up to All Children

The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn has earned the right to throw off the Red Tory tag which for the last two decades has accurately summed up their policies and vision. Corbyn and his closest aides have dragged that party, often screaming and kicking, back to the radical anti-capitalist roots from which it was born. The long-overdue decision taken at their Party Conference last week to abolish private schools is a striking example of their newfound radicalism. Private schools are a symbol of elitism and privilege that serve to perpetuate and sustain the class-divided society that the UK represents. Those […]

The General Election Ahead Must Be the ‘Independence Election’

I have been invited to address the massive All Under One Banner (AUOB) march and rally planned for next Saturday, October 5th, in Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh. I spoke last year after over 100,000 had marched through the city in a sea of colour, vibrancy and hope for a new dawn independent from the Westminster restrictions and shenanigans. In those days it was merely the Malevolent May government that we sought escape from with it’s cold and cruel austerity policies that condemned over 14 million adults to poverty, including 9 million working households whose wages were woefully inadequate given […]

Bye Bye Pinocchio Boris – Your Prison Cell Awaits You

Tuesdays will never be the same. We have known for years Boris Johnson was a liar. It is a matter of record. What was confirmed on Tuesday, 24th September at around 10.40am is he is also a criminal. A criminal liar! The Pinocchio of Westminster! Within an hour #ByeByeBoris was trending on Twitter. Can Tuesdays get any better? Lady Hale started to read the unanimous Supreme Court judgement on behalf of all eleven Justices who listened last week to the legal arguments regarding the government’s decision to prorogue Parliament for the longest period in over 40 years at 10.30am. By […]

Johnson is More Pinocchio than Hulk – Britain’s Disintegration is Underway

Today or later this week the whole institution known as Britain could implode and shatter beyond repair. It is not hyperbole to suggest Britain in its current format is finished. I say that regardless of whether the UK Supreme Court finds for the Government that its extraordinary prorogation of Parliament is lawful or that the Highest Court in Scotland’s judgement that it was indeed unlawful is upheld. Either way Britain will not survive. Under the terms of the Treaty of Union 1707 it was agreed that formerly sovereign Scotland would retain its distinctive judiciary despite losing its national identity. Scotland […]

5 Years on Independence is Within Our Grasp – Join Us On Saturday

Exactly five years ago today (18th September) I was absolutely buzzing with excitement and anticipation. It was the day many Scots had devoted their adult lives to achieving. It was Independence Day. On 18th September 2014 a referendum was held in Scotland to determine whether the people wanted to break the chains of Westminster rule and build a new and better independent country or stay in the restrictive British Union relationship the rich and entitled land owners and Nobles secretly signed the country up to in 1707. Those feeble Nobles were bribed with English gold to give up something that […]
