Corbyn’s Labour for England and Wales – SNP for Scotland

By Tommy Sheridan Jeremy Corbyn launched his general election campaign with the passion and assuredness of a man convinced that the socialist principles of fairness, justice, peace and social equality are shared by the majority of human beings across the UK. For decades I have waited on a Labour leader to call out the obscene inequalities of wealth and power which stalk and haunt every part of Britain and refuse to be part of the cosy Establishment consensus that demands elections are about nuances and peripheral matters but never about real power and the socio-economic system that imposes great wealth […]

** PRESS RELEASE ** Supreme Court Judgement Means Johnson Must Resign and a General Election Must Be Called!

For Immediate Release Tuesday 24th September 2019 The unanimous judgement of the Supreme Court, that Boris Johnson acted illegally in proroguing Parliament, makes his position as Prime Minister completely untenable. He must resign with immediate effect and a General Election must be called. In the wake of these events, the SNP must finally initiate IndyRef2, and do so as soon as possible. The Scottish people must be given the opportunity to decide whether we remain under an undemocratic, sham of a parliament or to grasp the opportunity to become independent of it.

PRESS RELEASE: Solidarity Joins Overwhelming and Widespread Outrage Over PM Suspending Parliament!

For Immediate Release Wednesday 28th August 2019 The actions of the UK Prime Minister today to suspend the Westminster Parliament should disturb everyone who values democracy.

Solidarity calls on the SNP to initiate IndyRef2 as soon as possible, to give the […]

How I Became a Socialist – Ryan Park (16)

“Democracy is the road to socialism” – Karl Marx I remember when I was younger, about 9-years-old. I was at my gran’s house and when I was in the kitchen talking to her, I noticed a black and white picture of a bearded man with a beret. Not knowing the name of this man, despite seeing his face countless times at my gran’s house, I asked my gran who he was, and she replied with a name I had never heard before – Ché Guevara. Intrigued, I asked what he did? My gran told me that he was a freedom […]

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 […]
