Don’t Be a Hypocrite All Your Life Boris – Call an Immediate General Election

I’m surely not the only one shouting at the telly every time some mealy mouthed presenter informs me that 160,000 oddities are soon to select the UK’s next Prime Minister simply because they are members of a party that could only muster less than 10% of the votes at the UK wide Euro election last month?

From Our Tommy Sheridan

From Our Tommy Sheridan From Our Tommy Sheridan A wee blast from the past. Campaigning for my Private Members Bill to deliver universal free and healthy school meals to all of Scotland’s school pupils. It was a radical anti-poverty and pro-dietary health measure.
