May, Sturgeon and the Treacherous Tory Trap

Confidence trickster Theresa May is attempting to lure Nicola Sturgeon into blocking a second referendum on independence.  Given the historically contemptuous attitude by unionist parties towards Scotland, it will shock very few that Theresa May is laying a devious political trap for Scotland’s First Minister by offering to include her in all aspects of the […]

There is no viable, sustainable, attractive alternative to independence, Henry.

The Scottish election of 2016 had one winner and that was the SNP. If you believe any different, switch your TV off now! Everyone else lost, some much worse than others. Yes, I’m talking about Labour, their 3rd place finish behind the Tories. In their frustration, they are about to try and con Scottish voters […]

SNP victory! – now let’s take the fight to the toxic tories

The speculation is over. The SNP has gained a historic third Holyrood victory, Labour’s Scottish branch has reached a new low by finishing in third place behind the Tories and the LibDems could only manage a feeble fifth behind the Greens. Nicola Sturgeon plans to put “party differences aside and work together and place people’s […]

The RISE and Fail of J Rimmer

The simple answer is that he has earned this right through hard work and relentlessly holding the media to account through fact based analysis. There is no one better at this role, it is […]

Neil Oliver and his unionist hate fest

It oozes personal hate towards Salmond and Sturgeon, disdain towards the SNP and bitterness towards his fellow Scots who aspire towards a better vision for Scotland. Neil talks of ‘schoolboy logic’ but […]

Mhairi Lands Pension Blow As The Tories Don’t Show

On the 12th of September 1994 Marti Pellow was singing Love is All Around while Bill Clinton was a happy president who had not had relations with that woman yet, although someone did crash a stolen Cessna 150 onto the South Lawn of the White House presumably aiming for him. More importantly, the whirlwind that is Mhairi Black […]

The Glorious Union versus #SNPbad

Today hailed the first weekly Holyrood gathering of 2016 as our MSPs and party leaders clarified their outlook for the forthcoming election year in Scotland. The debate started off as usual with ‘thoughts for reflection’ and upon reflection, and after hearing the debate, it seems clear this year will see continued blind attacks on the policy […]

Of Scotland’s Second Enlightenment

Of Scotland’s Second Enlightenment By Craig Sheridan   The light is not dying just timidly dimmed Amassing the courage to forsake him Upsurge of spirit forged from repression Undaunted prosecution of valour’s redressing   The light is not dying its an attempt to betray folk Can’t extinguish flame eternal with mirrors and smoke Unmasking false […]
