Annual General Meeting 2020

The year 2020 is so hopeless that we have decided to hold the 2020 AGM all the way in 2021.

We are exploring all possibilities on how to make attendance easy for our members including meeting online. Stay tuned for more information since who knows how the world will look like by January!

 

While only party members will be allowed to vote, supporters are welcome. Please let us know if you’re coming, however.

Hope for Aberdeen

Hope for Aberdeen

Bryce Hope SLP

To my fellow freedom fighters,

Thank you for welcoming me into your organisation. I am currently running as SLP candidate for in the by-election for Nigg, Cove and Kincorth in Aberdeen and I wanted to introduce myself.

I was born in Inverness and raised in the sprawling landscapes of the Cairngorms. I moved to Aberdeen in 2010 to study my way to success. I attended Aberdeen College (now NESCol) and University of Aberdeen, finishing with a Masters in music composition. During this time I have …

We Need To Talk About “Education” – Deschooling Society

We Need To Talk About “Education” – Deschooling Society

“School is the advertising agency which makes you believe that you need the society as it is.”

Thus spake Ivan Illich. Austrian (we owe them so much) Philosopher, polymath, and author of the classic work Deschooling Society. A book that sits permanently by my bedside alongside Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged , The Complete Works of TS. Elliot and, The Count of Monte Cristo. But it is to Illich’s short but powerful gem that I turn to most out of the four.

When it comes to what we define as education I have …

Orwell’s Newspeak : The New Normal

Orwell’s Newspeak : The New Normal

The term “Orwellian” is a word thrown around like confetti these days. Often in hyperbolic terms but in most instances I think it’s justified.

For those of you who never read George Orwell’s 1984 (studies show about 90% of people who say they have, haven’t. ….. OK I pulled that figure out of my backside but it’s pretty close.) I strongly advise you should do so now, before it’s too late. I’m sure someone somewhere will indulge in a bit of offence archaeology and uncover some …

Notes from the Underground: Holyrood Confidential

Notes from the Underground: Holyrood Confidential

Like a few other curious individuals, concerned citizens and free thinkers who oppose the lockdown on the apparently insane principle that there is no evidence whatsoever that it is doing any good but on the contrary there is much evidence it’s doing harm. I attended today’s Anti Lockdown demo in Holyrood Park.

Apart from the disparate and brave few(I identified around 30)who defied Wee Sister in order to push back against state overreach, notable by absence were any I could possibly describe as “Far Right”. I …

Let The People Go!

Let The People Go!

Unfortunately I don’t have the divinely inspired powers of Moses to utilise the ten plagues of Egypt upon our modern day despots.

But in the end, as Linkin Park have immortalised, it doesn’t even matter. Our despots seem determined to bring the plagues down us all by their own hubris and design. 

We have all done it I suppose. Made that ill thought through judgment in a moment of panic under pressure, then as it becomes patently obvious that it was a wrong decision, we struggle to …

Frog Boiling and Free Speech

Frog Boiling and Free Speech

According to the “Boiling a Frog” theory, if you place a frog into hot water it will immediately jump out. If however you place the same unfortunate and unsuspecting amphibian into cold water, and gradually and incrementally increase the heat. The slimy, goggley- eyed fool will boil to death before it realises what’s occurring. So ok, experiments have been conducted and it turns out that the theory, like many others we are fond of, is a complete load of old bollocks. Sorry to ruin one …

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 …

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

I for one am glad the festive period is over. Office parties starring  teetering hordes of amateur alcoholics, everything going up in price and silly songs featuring diminutive prepubescent percussionists that go “pa rum pa pump um.” (I searched the gospels for this anti social noise nuisance but he seems to be oddly absent from all four.) As you can probably gather. I’m not a fan. Except of course for the capitalistfest that was our own Libertarian Christmas party. Nothing less than a triumph of …
