What can you do when you can’t change the entire world?

What can you do when you can’t change the entire world?

Maybe you see that the world is going in the wrong direction – or maybe it’s going straight to hell. So what are you going to do?

It goes without saying that you should join up with the Scottish Libertarian Party! And of course you should be an activist and all the good stuff. But when it comes to the activism bit, it can be hard. Maybe you don’t have that much time, maybe you don’t feel like you have the skills, maybe you don’t have …

UK Government plans Crossbow Control laws

Nanny Sturgeon isn’t finished with your kids yet!

New rules set freedoms to party, dance and snog..while rules for schools outrage parents!

Tuesday 3rd August brought another fascinating spectacle from the Scottish Government. Nicola Sturgeon took to the podium to announce she would be ditching part of her propaganda (the ‘Levels’ system) and relaxing certain restrictions but maintaining most.

While the new normal allows for dancing in clubs, no social distancing or late night curfews, young school-goers will be forced to mask up throughout the day, swab themselves religiously and ‘keep a safe distance’ from …

The Road to Hell

The Road to Hell

Many government agencies show contempt for personal freedoms and none more so than in the case of the DVLA.

While the environmentalists among us may cheer the decreasing access to cars, the DVLA has become one of the biggest barriers to modern independence and prosperity.

Currently, new drivers have to wait months to receive even basic documentation like a provisional license; those with medical conditions wait much longer! As one report in The Guardian put it: “The driving license renewal problems appear to particularly affect those without a …

Scottish Education: A Failure on Two Fronts

Scottish Education: A Failure on Two Fronts

SLP Contributor Ross Gibson summarises the sad state of affairs in Scottish Education and questions the recent action of government officials.

Fortifying the Firewalls

Fortifying the Firewalls

The Cult of Personality and a short lesson in online security.

Once, the only people to be cautious around were the ‘loving and tolerant’ Left who would go out of their way to dox, harass and have you fired from your job for having a differing opinion. However, with the introduction of the Scottish Hate Crime Bill, Online Harms, Communications Act and …
