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 …

IndyRef2? Why I Cannot Vote Yes (again)

IndyRef2? Why I Cannot Vote Yes (again)

“..for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself. .”

 

So assert those who signed the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320. A document that alongside Magna Carta is said to have influenced the founding fathers of America and their constitution.

The first …

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.)

The Scottish Libertarian movement is a broad church …

Gay Marriage & The Role Of Government

Gay Marriage & The Role Of Government

The Scottish Government have announced that they will introduce new legislation which will allow gay marriage as early as 2015. The real question is whether we need government approval. Do we need a new law allowing for gay marriage?

The only reason that amendments to the law need to be made by the Scottish Government is because they have far too much involvement in the voluntary contract of marriage as it is.

The Scottish Libertarian Party welcomes gay people being accepted and congratulates the SNP for recognising …
