The fact many in the billionaire-owned and controlled media have referred to the Meghan and Harry interview with Oprah as the worst Royal crisis in 85 years highlights how that rotten, decaying, and offensive institution is protected and molly coddled by the British Establishment. The Royal Family has done all in its power to protect and defend a man suspected of child sex offences with close...
The Tory Health and Social care Minister for England Helen Whately has defended the utterly shameful Tory party decision to offer nurses in England a pay cut for their incredible efforts and dedication during the worst health pandemic in our lifetimes. Relying on the essential Tory traits of dishonesty and brass necks which could withstand a blowtorch she brazenly defended cutting the wages of...
A High Court Judge has exposed Boris Johnson as a calculated liar who has misled the UK Parliament and all it’s citizens in order to cover up the extent of illegal awarding of PPE contracts to friends and Tory’s donors without justification or contract award notices. The stench of the most rancid hypocrisy and double standards which pollutes the Tory party is foul and overpowering but yet...
As I predicted in mid-January the London Labour officer elected to manage the Scottish branch office of the party, their 10th office manager in only twenty years, has indeed been announced as List MSP for Glasgow Anas Sarwar. The privately educated millionaire Anas Sarwar has trumped the working-class alternative in the shape of Monica Lennon. The idea that a privately educated son of a...
Alex Salmond has displayed in the Scottish Parliament the multitude of reasons why he should be back in frontline Scottish politics and helping to lead the charge to Scottish independence. With dignity, intellect, sincerity, and the energy of a man half his 66 years of age he sailed through a six-hour session of questioning in front of nine hostile politicians on the specially convened committee...
Recently Kamran Abassi, executive editor of the British Medical Journal, one of the most respected medical publications in the world, suggested political failures in dealing with Covid19 could amount to “social murder” making the politicians responsible criminally liable for their actions and inactions. He drew attention to the two million deaths from the pandemic globally but in particular...
The Tax Watch charity has revealed that the number of criminal prosecutions for benefits related crimes dwarfs the number of prosecutions for tax crimes by an incredible 23 to 1. This stunning report lays bare the putrid priorities and noxious double-standards which pollute British society. Over the last eleven years there have been 85,745 criminal prosecutions for benefits related fraud but only...
The British unionists in Scotland are now heading for electoral annihilation with the long-awaited confirmation that the Action For Independence (AFI) party has secured registration to field candidates all across Scotland in the critical May 6th Holyrood election. After several months of quite extraordinary manoeuvres by the Electoral Commission to prevent the AFI independence alliance party from...
A story in the Guardian newspaper the other day resonated with me as it highlighted two issues which I’m particularly vexed about. A young black trainee priest made the mistake of treating Twitter as a forum for balanced, informed, and mature debate and discussion. He posted a comment, a perfectly reasonable and thoughtful comment, which resulted in an avalanche of abuse, much of it racist and...
The National newspaper has published a powerful piece from a Scottish MP that illustrates clearly there are serious and perhaps irreconcilable divisions within the principal party of Scottish independence which commands a mature and determined response from the wider independence movement. The fact that Joanna Cherry, a Scottish National Party (SNP) MP of considerable talent, integrity and...
Listening to Good Morning Scotland this morning reminded me how rotten the gambling industry is and how cynical their involvement in sport is. An SNP MP, Ronnie Cowan, referred to the rise in gambling addictions and the related social problems across the UK and Scotland as another ‘pandemic’, and he is not wrong. Two other guests who spoke with passion and informed concern made the case for...
  The decision taken by the new Biden administration only days ago to suspend military hardware sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) pending a review of US relationships with all Gulf states and particularly a reassessment of US arms sales being used by the Saudi led coalition to commit human rights abuses and war crimes in its conduct of the six year war in Yemen is both...
The unionists defending the UK are yesterday’s people. The tide of history is now sweeping in one unstoppable direction and that is towards self-determination for Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. A week ago, I was invited by RT to comment on the campaign for a second Scottish independence referendum amid screams of outrage by assorted unionists that pressing ahead with plans for independence during...
While listening to US President Joe Biden address his country and the world during his strictly controlled and carefully choreographed Inauguration Ceremony on Wednesday the axiom that chimed loudest in my mind was the time-served truth – Actions Speak Louder than Words. The speech was very good and even well delivered by a man not noted for oratorical skills. The sentiments expressed were...
SNP HIERARCHY’S 11 POINT PLAN IS DOOMED TO FAIL! The SNP hierarchy’s new Plan to pursue an Independence Referendum for Scotland is doomed to fail, and they know it. The 11 point plan gives Indy supporters nothing new and is merely a repeat of previous promises. After almost 7 years since the last referendum, the SNP hierarchy have attained no less than six mandates and made promises to...
The Labour Party in Scotland attracts and deserves ridicule. It pretends to be an autonomous organisation able to decide its own policies and strategy but in reality, it is a mere poodle of its master in London obediently carrying out orders best suited to the British Unionists. In a rare moment of political lucidity the former Scottish Labour Party leader Johann Lamont, a British Unionist, felt...
The British Union is near to extinction. It hangs by a thread and within three weeks of a very uncertain year I state with confidence the exploitative entity called the UK will not survive 2021. Britain is in the process of disintegration. The Union Jack flag of imperial domination, referred to as the ‘Butcher’s Apron’ by millions who have suffered from the colonial rule, brutality, spilt...
The last five days have witnessed socially distanced picket lines across the UK and a wave of social media solidarity in support of the 7,000 gas engineers and call centre workers compelled to strike against the unacceptable, repugnant, and Victorian era employment practices of the UK’s biggest gas company. Despite months of negotiations with the GMB union representing ninety percent of the...
Like millions across the world, I was engrossed by the images broadcast by CNN and other mainstream media last night of the US Capitol building, the seat of American democracy, being invaded, vandalised, and its elected political occupants threatened. The Trump mob were intimidating, vicious and violent. Some form of chemical agent was sprayed on police officers guarding the steps and entrance to...
The US government attempt to have Julian Assange extradited to America to face 18 counts of criminality under the 1917 Espionage Act has been rejected in a ruling running to one hundred and thirty-one pages and four hundred and ten paragraphs. I am glad but not happy. Pleased but not content. It is the right decision but for the wrong reasons. In essence it is a cop out which rejects six of the...
