Free To Disagree : The SLP Support Dr. Waiton’s Campaign

Free To Disagree : The SLP Support Dr. Waiton’s Campaign

 

“I’m not aware of any liberal democracy that has got a bill that is as unbelievably authoritarian as this one.”  Dr. Stuart Waiton

Many of you may know the SNP and in particular the “Justice” Minister Humza Yousaf are determined to introduce their latest assault on individual liberty, The Hate Crime Bill.

See the previous article on this website for more details here:

Dr. Stuart Waiton of Abertay University, a fellow traveler in the march against authoritarianism who did sterling work opposing the equally insidious Named Person legislation, has …

Why We Should Oppose Mandatory Face mask Laws

Why We Should Oppose Mandatory Face mask Laws

 

 
As summer is coming up and the number of deaths from Coronavirus are going down, you would honestly think that it will be time to grasp that breath of fresh air whether it be out in the garden, out for a walk on the streets or even in the park with bigger woodlands if you’re lucky. Except, that may not be the case any longer if the pro-lockdown and Health & Safety zealots have anything to go by.

Three months ago, right at the time when …

Orwell’s Newspeak : The New Normal

Orwell’s Newspeak : The New Normal

The term “Orwellian” is a word thrown around like confetti these days. Often in hyperbolic terms but in most instances I think it’s justified.

For those of you who never read George Orwell’s 1984 (studies show about 90% of people who say they have, haven’t. ….. OK I pulled that figure out of my backside but it’s pretty close.) I strongly advise you should do so now, before it’s too late. I’m sure someone somewhere will indulge in a bit of offence archaeology and uncover some …

Notes from the Underground: Holyrood Confidential

Notes from the Underground: Holyrood Confidential

Like a few other curious individuals, concerned citizens and free thinkers who oppose the lockdown on the apparently insane principle that there is no evidence whatsoever that it is doing any good but on the contrary there is much evidence it’s doing harm. I attended today’s Anti Lockdown demo in Holyrood Park.

Apart from the disparate and brave few(I identified around 30)who defied Wee Sister in order to push back against state overreach, notable by absence were any I could possibly describe as “Far Right”. I …

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 …

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 …

100 Years on: Remembering the Millions who suffered under Socialism

100 Years on: Remembering the Millions who suffered under Socialism

 

There are two places only where socialism will work: in heaven, where it is not needed, and in hell where they already have it. – Winston Churchill

 

It is a recurring theme amongst socialists to argue that, if we only adopt the right system, a wonderful utopia awaits us. Indeed, the word “Utopia” owes its origin to Thomas More’s book of the same name about a mythical island where there is no private property and everyone takes what he needs. It is therefore an extremely appropriate …
