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 …

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 …
