      Gosh the swamp in Washington DC are in a feeding frenzy over Donald Trump’s meeting in Finland with Vladimir Putin and his subsequent invitation for him to come to the White House in the Fall for more discussions. Why?

      Trump, Americans and Putin Have a Common Problem: The US Deep State

      by Ivan Danilov

      During the "hot mic incident" Barack Obama promised Dmitry Medvedev to be "flexible", and yet the mainstream media refrained from calling Obama a traitor. The double standard is obvious and so is the fact that Russian collusion is merely a pretext for bashing Trump.

      Does an Elected President or an Unelected Intelligence Community Govern the US?

      by John Wight

      The madness that gripped liberals and neocons within the Western political, media, and security establishments, over the sight of a US president having the temerity to treat his Russian counterpart – Vladimir Putin – as an equal rather than colonial vassal who knows his place, was and is more pronounced than anyone could have expected.

      The Orange Order in Scotland - Hate Group or Scottish Protestant Fraternity?

      by John Wight

      On its website, the Orange Order in Scotland describes itself as the country’s ‘oldest and biggest Protestant fraternity…an organization of people bonded together to promote the ideals of our faith’. Others, however, disagree and regard the Orange Order as an organization rooted in religious and cultural supremacy and anti-Irish Catholic bigotry.

      Europe Captive… of America

      by Finian Cunningham

      May's Government Collapsing in Brexit Storm: Second Referendum Looms

      by John Wight

      At times like this, the Brexit dam having burst and, with it, bursting asunder any lingering hope in the ability of Theresa May’s government to navigate the country out of the Brexit storm that has engulfed it since the 2016 EU referendum, a storm that has intensified into open civil war within the Tory Party, Irish poet W B Yeats looms large.

      Taxi for Theresa

      by Jon Gaunt

      There is no way that Theresa May should be allowed to cling onto her leadership of our great country for a minute longer. The Tories should put the Country before their party and immediately call a taxi, or knowing the Tories a bloody Uber, to escort this useless woman away from Downing Street.

      After an incredibly dramatic and emotionally draining Round of 16, the World Cup now reaches the quarter-final stage. Eight teams are left in the tournament, but if we’ve learnt anything up to now it’s that there are no ‘sure things’- and none of the surviving teams should be written off.

      UK Complicity in Torture Revealed in New Report: Now What?

      by John Wight

      The fact that 15 years on from the war in Iraq - resulting in death, destruction and dislocation on a biblical scale - not one person has been prosecuted and held to account in a court of law, surely this stands as an indictment of the rank double standards that underpin the concept of justice in the UK and the US, who were both responsible.
