McDonnell and Corbyn are right – IndyRef2 is Scotland’s Decision

By Tommy Sheridan As a lifelong socialist and ardent supporter of Scottish independence I simply cannot let the latest stupidity of the Scottish Labour Party in relation to the question of a second independence referendum pass without comment. Someone has to grab the Scottish Branch leader, Richard Leonard, by the scruff of his neck and explain to him that once you are in a hole the worst thing you can do is keep digging. The Labour Party in Scotland used to weigh votes rather than count them such was their electoral dominance of the country over several decades. Scotland was […]

No If, No Buts – Scottish IndyRef2 Vote Has To Be Held On October 31st

By Tommy Sheridan The time for shadow boxing is over. Incessant dithering and empty talk has gone on too long. We live in extraordinary times and in extraordinary times often extraordinary measures are needed. In 12 weeks’ time Scotland will be dragged out of a European Union they voted overwhelmingly to remain in by a government and Prime Minister Scotland voted to overwhelmingly reject. The democratic triple lock mandate the Scottish Government possesses for IndyRef2 must be organised to coincide with the 31st October Brexit date. Scotland hasn’t voted Tory for 64 years and ‘Back Door Boris’ Johnson was appointed […]

Back Door Boris – Fraudulent PM Can Run But Not For Long

By Tommy Sheridan Yesterday I was proud of both my country and my First Minister. The fraudulent Prime Minister of the UK, elected by less than one 1% of the 46 million registered voters, sought to charm a part of the British union which has rejected his party and his politics consistently over the last 64 years with a secretive and swift visit to Scotland. His arrival in Edinburgh city centre outside Bute House, the official residence of the First Minister, was met with a cacophony of boos and derogatory chants https://www.independent.ie/videos/world-news/video-boris-johnson-booed-in-scotland-as-he-arrives-for-nicola-sturgeon-meeting-38355490.html from the several hundred Scots who had gathered […]

U.S. kills more civilians in Afghanistan than the Taliban – Shameful & Shocking

By Tommy Sheridan The United States has bombed and/or invaded: Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Cuba, Panama, Pakistan, Nicaragua, Grenada, Vietnam ,Laos, Guatemala and Cambodia to name just a few of the examples we are aware of. Yet mainstream media discussions about ‘threats to world peace’ never mention the trigger happy US. Sure North Korea, Iran, Russia and Venezuela are mentioned and demonised constantly but never the country that is actually the most aggressive and dangerous on the planet. If you are looking for the single biggest threat to world peace look no further than the United States of […]

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 […]
