Prison is just the place they keep you while they get your real punishment ready. In May 2019 there was an All Under One Banner march from Kelvingrove Park to Glasgow Green. You might remember it. You might have been one of the marchers. I was. The thing I remember was that a lot of […]
Saturday, 1st of May, 2021. I started off the day feeling down and not very cheerful. I had had my second Covid jag and was suffering a reaction. Don’t mistake me, I was delighted to have got my second jag but as I had not had any adverse symptoms after the first one I was […]
I am not now, nor have I ever been a member of the Scottish National Party Yet another opinion poll shows a majority of the Scottish people supporting independence and again the London based media asks ‘why?’. The same media seems rather uncomfortable at not being able to provide a reason for this strange Scottish […]
When it was announced that the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board were taking over administration of flu vaccinations for those over 65 I sensed a disaster in the offing. Early rumours and media reports suggested that I was not wrong. Even our MSP had to get involved. Staff at my GP’s surgery started […]The post Flu Jabs 2020 appeared first on Yes Pollok.
YESPollok has set up an online shop and it was decided at a recent meeting that YESPollok will donate 25% of any profit from its online shop to a local Food Bank. So what about Food Banks? “If you’re not feelin’ very brusk you should go to your bed, Dougie,” remarked the Captain sympathetically. “There’s […]The post Food Banks appeared first on Yes Pollok.
THE BBC RESPONSE What good is a national broadcasting service which consistently refuses to engage honestly with criticism of its output? Anyone who has ever sent in a comment or a complaint to the BBC through their own system will know that they (in my case at least) never agree with any part of the […]The post The BBC response appeared first on Yes Pollok.

There was once a man who ruled a kingdom. It was not a large kingdom as these things go and he was not a king. There was a monarch but nobody cared about that. He was the fifty-fifth person to rule the kingdom and his name was Crispin. He thought his kingdom was the best […]The post Power and Dominance: a Fairytale appeared first on Yes Pollok.
Scottish Independence could lead to austerity” as pandemic response drains public coffers. This is the headline in the Daily Record.  It goes on to warn that an Independent Scotland could lead to an even bigger budget deficit than previously thought.   Yes, it is GERS time again and the Unionists will trumpet the doomsday scenario […]The post GERS figures appeared first on Yes Pollok.
The impression that I am left with is that this was a programme which had been made in the full expectation of a Guilty verdict in the Alex Salmond trial in March of this year. It had obviously been edited after the verdict was announced but the anticipation of a guilty verdict permeated the whole […]The post The Trial of Alex Salmond by Kirsty Wark and the BBC appeared first on Yes Pollok....

Nae king, nae queen.   Nae laird, nae maister. We’ll no be fooled again. Scottish independence is now inevitable. I do not know how or when it will happen. I am, however, sure that the final trigger will be seen as trivial at the time and will only acquire importance in retrospect. So we need […]The post Sovereignty appeared first on Yes Pollok.
Without a penny in my purse, To buy a meal to me. In the early years of this century banks, notably in the USA, lent more and more money as mortgages to people who were likely to have difficulty paying them back.   The banks knew this was a risky strategy so, to protect themselves, they […]The post Austerity appeared first on Yes Pollok.
