To our EU friends in Scotland: Please stay, we need you

Meanwhile, the swash-buckling Tory cabinet unveils the first of the new post-EU trade deals global Britain can look forward to. With Australia.

Israel’s indiscriminate shelling of densely populated Gaza Strip cannot be ignored by the West

We need to talk about the horror in Israel/Palestine. We cannot ignore this even if much of our media seems to be doing just that. There is a tragic inevitability to the death and destruction happening on the shores of the Mediterranean. But it is also no accident that it is happening now. Two weeks … Read more Israel’s indiscriminate shelling of densely populated Gaza Strip cannot be ignored by the West

It is now just two weeks until the general election to the Scottish parliament. People always claim that the next election is the most important ever.

Their Scottish Lordships

This week I published my 2021 report into the Scottish Lords. The report – titled “Their Scottish Lordships” highlights just how unrepresentative the Scottish member of the Lords are, the widening democratic deficit and the extortionate cost to the public purse.
