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 […]

PFI is Criminal in all but Name – Don’t Pay a Penny More

In the late 1990’s I was repeatedly ignored and often ridiculed when I stood in the exquisite debating chamber of Glasgow City Council and raged against the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) that was being promoted and pedalled by Labour, Tory and Lib Dem councillors as the best thing since sliced bread. It was the new method to finance essential public building projects and would transform schools, hospitals and other public infrastructure. Instead of local councils and health boards borrowing from the specially established Public Works Loan Board at reduced rates of interest they would invite private companies to establish consortiums […]

Scrap the Dishonourable Honours System – Abolish the House of Lords

Sometimes words are woefully inadequate when you wish to express your utter contempt and disgust for someone or something. Stinking like an overflowing sewer is the news of Theresa May’s outgoing ‘Honours List’ https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/sep/10/theresa-may-accused-of-cronyism-over-resignation-honours. It is in the gift of outgoing Prime Ministers to reward flunkeys, friends and failed and flawed individuals with wee baubles or peerages which bestow letters after the names of the chosen ones or titles before them. Lord or Lady Muck or Sir or Dame Whatever is what these individuals become and it is pathetic to the core. The Honours System and the House of Lords […]

Boris Talks Pish – Flush Him Out of Office in November Election

I couldn’t believe my ears this afternoon, Friday 6th September. After an incredible week of political shenanigans in Westminster the political correspondent of the normally supine, obedient and thoroughly Establishment biased BBC blurted out the truth about Boris Johnson. It was an earth shattering moment for me. After a political lifetime of exposing how the BBC, and the rest of the mainstream media, consistently distort news stories, tell blatant lies and create contrived narratives which defend the rich and powerful at all costs here was a paid BBC lackey actually telling the truth: “Boris Johnson started the day in Peterhead, […]

No Mandate. No Morals. No Majority. – Bye Bye Boris

As I watched Boris Johnson present his G7 Statement in the House of Commons today (Tuesday 3rd September) and respond to questions I couldn’t get a particular question out of my head. Does Eton have a refund scheme? Johnson is the clearest example on the planet that the rich and powerful can purchase expensive and exclusive places in esteemed private education establishments but they can’t buy intelligence. The guy is a bumbling, stumbling and ineffectual fool. A clown who has been promoted way beyond his abilities and finds himself at a lectern built for adults and therefore not suited to […]
