West Lothian Labour/Tory councillors attack the vulnerable then piss off to Taiwan!

The Labour Tory de facto coalition in West Lothian have voted through a series of eye watering cuts in West Lothian that target the most vulnerable in the county.

Has Kezia Dugdale been pushed into supporting Independence?

So, did Jeremy Corbyn merely partake in an embarrassingly badly attended 5-day tour to remind everyone of his lack of support in Scotland? Or did he have plans to wish Kezia Dugdale well in whatever she chose to do next? For me, it was the later. I don’t think she so much ‘passed the baton’ […]

It’s time to embrace that visceral feeling inside that tells you: independence is normal. This Insidious union of Scots and English parliaments is a symbiosis, which has proven to be parasitical as opposed to mutually beneficial.
