Murder in Holyrood

Murder in Holyrood

A vicious and brutal assault was carried out in the Scottish Parliament yesterday resulting in a tragic and senseless death.

The victim “Free Speech” lay lifeless on the floor of the parliament as the 82 perpetrators, all MSPs, gloated and congratulated each other. Only 32 MSPs protested and tried to help the victim while 4 shamefully turned there backs and chose not to intervene,

The names of the perpetrators are as yet unknown, but continue to watch this space as full names and constituencies will be posted …

A Price Worth Paying?

A Price Worth Paying?

What is the value of freedom? Throughout history it has been an ideal that wars have been fought over. A concept so important that our ancestors were willing to suffer and lay down their lives to protect it.

The tough side of standing for free speech

The tough side of standing for free speech

The Nazi chant of ‘blood and soil’ was heard throughout the night as far-right groups marched through Charlottesville, Virginia. On the night before the ‘Unite the Right’ rally, a pre-rally gathering was held on the University of Virginia campus grounds. Images of the large crowd, mostly male, entirely white, wielding torches and marching in unison, echo back to an unforgettable history, one of National Socialist marches and KKK lynch mobs.
