Boris Johnson should respect the decision of the Scottish electorate on independence

Last weekend the SNP recommitted itself to pursuing another referendum on whether Scotland should become an independent self-governing country. The party pledged that, if it gets a majority at the coming Scottish general election, it will ensure people get that choice. The feigned outrage from unionist opponents was a joy to behold. Why are they … Read more Boris Johnson should respect the decision of the Scottish electorate on independence

Business Questions again – I’ll keep asking the same question until I get an actual answer

Boris Johnson’s trade deal was backed by hard-right Tories, and Labour MPs

Happy New Year. In the words of D:Ream – things can only get better. As if to ice the foul cake that was 2020 the government rammed through its Brexit deal on Wednesday. So, you’re now ‘liberated’ from the chains of Brussels. Feeling the freedom? I suspect not. This sordid last-minute deal is an ignominious … Read more Boris Johnson’s trade deal was backed by hard-right Tories, and Labour MPs
