“It’s censorship” No it isn’t. No one is stopping Joanna Cherry from expressing her views. The Stand has the right to not host Joanna Cherry. The Stand has an obligation to put the interests of their staff before the interests of Joanna Cherry. If you take anything personal out of it, Joanna Cherry can find […]
Our GRA is none of Westminster’s Business
Doesn’t matter what your opinion on the legislation is, but the British government are once again openly subverting Scottish democracy. It’s entirely linked to them stripping us of our self-determination, as they are doing with judicial backing. This is tyranny, make no mistake. It isn’t, thank god, the type that involves violent repression, but now […]
Starmer’s “Progressive” Labour?
Do these Starmerite ‘progressives’ believe in democracy? If so, why are you opposing democracy in Scotland? Why are you endorsing your Leader’s will to collude with the Tories in curtailing Scottish self-determination? Why is it that Labour can’t get it right? It’s either some Stalinist psychopath dressed like a sexually repressed geography teacher or a […]

Sam Hamad responds to new New Labour’s proposal of recentralising British State power…
Death Match by Sam Hamad
If you are melting down over the World Cup in Qatar; ask yourself why you didn’t have a similar meltdown over the one in Russia in 2018? Be honest about it. At that point in the world, despite Russia genocidally ravaging Syria, annexing and waging war against Ukraine and overseeing the fatal persecution of homosexuals […]
The concept of Sonderweg- and its application to Russia.
It’s not just Nicola, they’re coming for all of us!

Save one shocking poll showing, for the first time, a lead for Yes at the tail end of the referendum campaign, the Unionists enjoyed a healthy lead in the poll. Yet still they came at us with a tsunami of lies, propaganda, […]
Jo Swinson has been elected as the leader of the Liberal Democrats. Usually I’d no more comment on the leader of the Liberal Democrats than I would the latest happenings on the degenerate Love Island, but we live in times that have catapulted the Liberals into public relevance and my consciousness. Partly, it’s because Corbynism […]
Wings over Russia
I’ve never been a huge fan of Stuart Campbell. To put it as bluntly as possible, he’s an arsehole. Or maybe I’m just prejudiced – It could be that I took my mum’s tongue-in-cheek warning, while singing the song about and explaining to me the events of the Massacre of Glencoe, to never trust a […]
Brexit Means Indy or Bust for Scotland
The problem now lies not in Scots understanding that the conception of the British Union as a ‘Union of Equals’ is nonsense, but in whether or not they care enough to do something about it. One could write an analysis of the British government’s Brexit deal the size of a small book, but, for Scots, […]
