Statement on Brexit

Statement on Brexit

Brexit Statement.

 
When she took office, Theresa May claimed that “To deliver Brexit, you must believe in Brexit.” She doesn’t, so she hasn’t. Her belief that Brexit is fundamentally bad for Britain has shaped her approach to the issue. She believes that the best Brexit is the weakest Brexit, irrespective of what we voted for. Sadly, the EU has taken advantage of this to demand a punitive financial payment of £39 billion and straightjacketed our economy by demanding compliance with its rules and regulations. This leaves …

Statement on Syria

Statement on Syria

 

In the early hours of Saturday morning  14th April 2018 the combined military might of the US, UK and France launched what amounts to an unprovoked attack on the sovereign nation state of Syria.  The pretext of the attack, to punish Bashar Al Assad and his regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons against his own civilian population.

Why then do I  say unprovoked? Because Assad posed no threat to the security, interests, overseas dominions, allies or peoples of the three countries involved.

But surely we can’t …

The Case of The Nazi Pug : A Joke That’s No Laughing Matter

The Case of The Nazi Pug : A Joke That’s No Laughing Matter

March 2018 deserves to be recorded for posterity as a milestone. Or indeed a tombstone. A time When the Scottish Judiciary drove what may be the final nail into the coffin of freedom of speech and expression in this country.

It has been manifestly obvious to anyone that Police Scotland are a political animal and creature of the Scottish Notional Party. It would now also seem that the judiciary are firmly in their pocket.

At Airdrie Sheriff court after a trial lasting longer than Nurnberg, Markus Meechan …

General Election June 8th

General Election June 8th

The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has decided to disrupt our council election campaign by selfishly and inconsiderately calling a snap General Election. (Tsk!)

However, be that as it “May”, if life gives you lemons…squeeze them back in the ****s eyes is what I say.

Accordingly the leadership team will be doing our best to appoint a campaign manager and place some candidates in key positions in Scotland. Given our current financial situation we are looking at three, possibly four, candidates at the most but ideally I’d …

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

There is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.

So opined Oscar Wilde. Although if he was so smart, how did he end up in Reading Gaol? That said, In terms of the Scottish Libertarian Party, I’m inclined to agree with the droll polymath. Right now we are not being talked about. I hope we can change that in 2017, and for all the right reasons.

For those of you who don’t know, 4th May 2017 will be the Scottish …

A Clarion Call

A Clarion Call

As many of you know Elections for the Scottish Parliament are to take place on 5th May 2016. Many of you out there may not know that the Scottish Libertarian Party intend to put up candidates for this election. The number of candidates, who they will be and in which constituency they will stand has not yet been finalised. (Watch this space.) Some of these factors, if not most, will come down to funding. (More of which ..later.)
