      PFI is Criminal in All But Name – Don’t Pay a Penny More

      by Tommy Sheridan

      The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) released a damning report about the flaws of the Private Finance Initiative (PFI). It has been an economic disaster for society as a whole and left a toxic legacy which is eating away at public finances and leaving hospitals and schools in a swamp of all-consuming debt from which they can’t escape.

      Jeremy Corbyn: Four Years Not Out. But Will It be Five?

      by Neil Clark

      It’s four years since Jeremy Corbyn, a 200-1 shot, was elected Labour Party leader. Against all the odds he’s still there, but to survive another year, and become Prime Minister, he needs to rediscover his radical outsider ‘anti-politics’ edge.

      Boris Talks Pish – Flush Him Out of Office in November Election

      by Tommy Sheridan

      I couldn’t believe my ears this Friday 6th September. After an incredible week of political shenanigans in Westminster the political correspondent of the normally supine, obedient and thoroughly Establishment biased BBC blurted out the truth about Boris Johnson. It was an earth shattering moment for me.

      Prorogue Boris Not Parliament – Scotland’s Freedom Beckons

      by Tommy Sheridan

      Proroguing parliament, suspending it from sitting, is in and of itself perfectly legal and normal. It is a standard practice to facilitate seasonal breaks, public holidays and party conferences. The extent of prorogation, however, is usually a matter of days or a couple of weeks at most.
