Social media is the problem. 'We have created tools that are ripping apart the fabric of how society works.'

Social media is the problem. I don’t blame ‘Politicalicious,’ ‘A Douglas,’ ‘Mel,’ or any of the other Twitter users who, without knowing anything about me, have made it their business to discredit …

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scottish independence is stuck between the hopeless and the hapless, driving us all into the lap of another inglorious failure.

There can be no denying that the failure of the SNP to secure or even move us closer to independence resulted in the creation of the Alba Party. Before even Mr Salmond announced his return to the p…

'Settlers and Colonists': How language and narrative matter in the discussion of Scotland's independent future.

‘Settlers and colonists,’ in the context of the Scottish independence debate, is a language which makes a number of presuppositions; that Scotland is an English colony, that Scotland is subject to …

Blogger James Kelly has 'a theory about Jeggit!' It turns out he just really hates the 'stink of Fenian.'

What is his deal — really? What really gets on James Kelly’s goat is the stink of Fenian. The Orange sash is not merely an artefact of open anti-Catholic sectarianism, it is a paracite of the mind …

'So, this is where I stand in this debate. I am neither one nor the other — exactly. I am a trans ally and a committed supporter of women’s rights. But I am not uncritical of gender theory or indeed the misguided theory of biological essentialism.'

Clearly this is a subject the internet has opinions about. Since 25 October 2020, when I first engaged in this discussion, I have lost somewhere...

When are we going to realise that the British system is like quicksand? The more we struggle, the deeper we sink, the more stuck we become.

This is how loyalism in Britain works. It does not need you to love it, want it, care for it. The super-rich British establishment has all the power because it has all the money. Democracy has no c…

National belonging is not in fact native to the human condition. Nationalism is a psycho-political development with which both Wallace and Bruce were unfamiliar. When we ask how these heroes of our…

Its quixotic readiness to go on crusade against every perceived wrong, hampered at every turn by its lack of maturity and inability to systematically think through some of the most basic tenets of …

Radio Saorsa | Free Palestine: Solidarity with Palestine has everything to do with us. This is the struggle against the same forces of capitalist imperialism as we have for independence and unity. #JeggitVideo #FreePalestine Full Video:

Israel’s latest assault on Gaza! This is never going to be an easy discussion — but it is one we need to have and keep having. Radio Saorsa is a channel...

So why then is this question of currency so important to unionists? The answer is simple: unionists in Scotland are unionists precisely because the prevailin...

LIVE BLOG: Following events in Holyrood live, Random Public Journal will be keeping you up to the minute with regular comment and analysis. Retweet please. #SalmondSpeaks

At long last, after having his innocence upheld in the Scottish courts, Alex Salmond, the former leader of the Scottish National Party and First Minister of Scotland, gets his day in parliament. He…

'In its efforts to use the pandemic to save the state, Britain has only gone and guaranteed its own demise. Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead!'

But there is a darker, more sinister, side to this kind of nostalgia-propaganda – when it employs real people as instruments of this mythology. Again, to some extent, this is something British prop…

🇮🇪🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 An Irish response to Cameron Archibald's cowardly suggestion that Scotland must not be like Ireland, must not defend its right to be free.

Christopher McEleny’s response – ‘I do not need a lecture on Irish history from you’ – was, one supposes, the best possible reply to this level of stupidity. McEleny had commented that a century ag…

At times like this, with more frustration than fulfilment, it is east to lose heart. But if we want independence then we must continue to engage in the struggle.

There are, of course, people telling bloggers like me to calm down, that the polls are in our favour – which they are, but the polls don’t matter when we don’t have a party in government in Scotlan…

No, I am not ready to forgive and forget. There is simply too much at stake. Murray Foote is not just another ordinary Joe who has changed his mind on independence. randompublicjournal.com/...e-enemies/

Britain can threaten Europe all it likes, but this show of force from the Royal Navy only exposes to the world that the Westminster regime is led by a shower of gobshites.

There is no need to start digging bomb shelters at the bottom of the garden. This is not, as some have suggested, going to lead to World War III. Regardless of its bloated opinion of its capabiliti…

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Pro-Independence Bloggers: 'We are not the enemy, we are the "loyal opposition." We are loyal to independence and we will oppose any tendency or agenda in the SNP or any other party that threatens independence and the type of independence we want.'

We see this authoritarian and fascistic impulse too in the behaviour of the party towards those in the party of a more...

Oh yes! Welsh independence is trending, and there's lots we should be learning from this dragon. YesCymru

Our heretofore trust in the idiom ‘Cometh the hour, cometh the man’ has done us no service. Charismatic leadership is rare in the real world, and my regular readers will by now be aware of my negat…

She has abused our trust and our goodwill, and there is no place for her poisonous opinions in our movement or in Scotland.

Before addressing Victoria’s video, for the purposes of full transparency, it is only right that I acknowledge my own positionality. Victoria Johnson is someone with whom I have worked with on a nu…
