The Monster, the Oil and the Death Throes of Britain

It becomes clearer every day. The stench of desperation emanates from the pores of the staunchest defenders like sewage from a damaged sceptic tank. The British Union is in its death throes. Independence for Scotland is now more certain than ever. Theresa May’s embarrassing visit to Scotland the other day is just the latest signpost which indicates Britain as an entity is dead. The fact she began her fleeting visit at a tech start-up company in Stirling only a couple of miles from Bannockburn was a cryptic message that passed her by. No introduction for this PM. No warm-up act. […]

TRUMP IS A LIAR BUT SANDERS IS A VISIONARY

The Cambridge Dictionary online describes the informal definition of ‘tripe’ as: “ideas, suggestions, or writing that are stupid, silly, or have little value” https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/tripe An objective survey of Donald Trump’s turgid Tweets, tortuous press briefings and countless cosy Fox TV interviews would lead you to conclude that the word ‘tripe’ was tailor made for him. The only weakness in the description is the absence of dangerous effect and malignant outcomes. For Donald Trump is not just some rich and spoiled bozo shouting his mouth off and being summarily dismissed and ignored by ordinary thinking human beings he is the elected President of the […]

I’m Chris Williamson. I’m Jeremy Corbyn

It is more necessary than ever for socialists inside and outside the Labour Party, anti-racist campaigners and everyone who believes in equality and natural justice to loudly and prominently associate themselves either politically and morally, or at least morally, with Jeremy Corbyn MP and Chris Williamson MP. Both are now the targets of a vicious, virulent, carefully manufactured and cynically coordinated witch-hunt. The witch-hunt is focused on them as individuals but the real target is their anti-British Establishment ideas and the fact they pose a very real threat to the billionaire tax dodgers, media owners and warmongers who cause and […]

EU Election Confirms the UK is Finished – Scotland’s Time Has Come

Substance is much more important than spin. That truism is as applicable to politics as it is to life. Block out the white noise of the various mealy mouthed spin doctors and highly paid gum bumpers from all sides and the truth is the 2019 European Elections told us nothing we didn’t already know. The UK as an institution is dead. It is a deeply divided Kingdom. Scotland is a different country and the sooner it seizes its independence the better for everyone who rejects the reactionary British nationalism and regressive xenophobia which pollutes large parts of England. Farage by […]

Syria and Chemical Weapons – Reports, Secrets and Convenient Lies

Often words are woefully inadequate when trying to articulate the sheer anger and disgust you feel when you discover deceit and dishonesty within organisations hitherto known for integrity and professional honesty and independence. Anyone with more than one active brain cell no longer trusts the mainstream media to tell the truth and present facts in an even handed manner. The newspapers and TV stations are owned and controlled by millionaires and billionaires to do the bidding of the rich and wealthy. They will at all costs defend the status quo, the Establishment elites in each powerful nation, east and west. […]
