      Is Farage Our Trump?

      by Jon Gaunt

      I know that it is Easter but as far as resurrections go Nigel Farage has performed an absolute miracle in making his political comeback and he now dominates British Politics.

      by Neil Clark

      The horrific Easter Day attacks in Sri Lanka, which targeted three packed churches and five hotels and which at time of writing have claimed the lives of at least 290 people, represent yet another blood-stained chapter in the on-going persecution of Christians which is taking place all over the world.

      My Independent Scotland is Part of Europe but Not the EU

      by Tommy Sheridan

      Political activism over a period of almost 40 years has taught me to cherish consistency and integrity but reject absolutism. Don't ever hoist anyone so high in your mind that they are beyond criticism or reproach. Supporting individuals and political parties is normal and healthy but never on a blind loyalty, blank cheque or 100% basis.

      by Tommy Sheridan

      Lammy, Are We All Nazis?

      by Jon Gaunt

You notice other citizens observe the assault but they appear too frightened to intervene.

      The Day Democracy Died in the UK

      by Jon Gaunt

      Serial failure Theresa May must now call the removal firm and start packing the tea chests as she is no longer fit to be the leader of our country. There is no way that this political limpet can cling on any longer. Her deal is dead and so is her political career. Go now, woman for God's sake!
