Nanny Sturgeon isn’t finished with your kids yet!

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.

Scotland used to pride itself on having the best education system in the world. Thanks to the interference of the Scottish Government and its ideologically driven policies, Scotland’s education system has become nothing short of an embarrassment. 

While Scotland used to boast the highest attainment scores in the UK, recent studies have made clear that is simply no longer the case. According to the Programme for …

Fortifying the Firewalls

Fortifying the Firewalls

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

Places to speak freely on the internet are diminishing, and the new norm is for people to censor their own speech out of fear. 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 …

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

The Scottish National Party bribed their way into power with a manifesto promise to scrap student debt. This was perhaps one of the most flagrant displays of bribocracy ever seen in contemporary politics. 

Students are a sympathetic demographic and people value education. But what about working-class people who went straight to work from school and had to pay taxes for it? What about all the students who took an extra job at the weekend or stayed home with their parent, so they didn’t run …

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,
