Hating Tories and Sussing Nats

Hating Tories and Sussing Nats

By Ian Mitchell

 

I have written a book which I have called “Hating Tories” as it is about the parliamentary career of Nicola Sturgeon and I am convinced that hatred and negativity are the defining characteristics of her political outlook. The subtitle of the book is “How Nicola Sturgeon Got into Government (1970-2007)”. The title might give the impression that I have a rooted prejudice against Sturgeon and the SNP. I do not. In fact, I voted SNP for thirty years, before I went to …

About the de-registering

About the de-registering

Dear members,

Some of you have rightly shown concern over the Electoral Commissions recent decision to de-register the party. This unfortunate incident is due to what amounts to an administrative error. The party insists that all necessary information was provided to the EC and the appropriate fee paid in a timely and ordered manner. The ECs decision is automatic and as they keep reminding us, “Not Discretionary “. So the only option was to re-register the party which has been actioned and It’s now a matter …

The history of disarmament and why we should have the right to keep and bear arms

The history of disarmament and why we should have the right to keep and bear arms

The right of anyone to bear arms is an essential right to any society that does not wish to be ruled by tyrannical governments, let alone violent criminals, so why is it that so many people in power have a tendency to want to be on a mission to disarm society in their bid to stop most or any crime from happening to us and in turn, albeit mostly inadvertently, have the state use violence against us?

For anyone that takes the time to study history …

Deputy Leader Statement

Deputy Leader Statement

I’m Calum “Caz” Paul from Kirkcaldy and I’m the new Deputy Leader of the Scottish Libertarian Party. I’m a freelancer in the Scottish film industry, a musician and an active volunteer for a local charity.

 

I first joined the party in 2014 when my fellow YES campaigners – who were mourning the loss of the independence referendum – started to sound quite different from me politically when the ideal of independence came to an end, especially when it came to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech …

Lion of Liberty 2022

Lion of Liberty 2022

Jonathan Rainey of Dumbarton was presented with our Lion of Liberty award for 2022 at our AGM.

Jonathan is a young enthusiastic and outspoken activist who has stood in several elections in the Dumbarton area both in the council wards and parliamentary constituency.

On all occasions he puts in an amazing and almost inhuman amount of effort and his leafletting work load is almost legendary. He narrowly missed out on the award last year. Great job and certainly well deserved on this occasion.

He is also a contributor …
