When it comes to dealing with Covid-19, Sweden and Belarus stand out as the European outliers. Why did they decide not to impose the sort of lockdowns that other countries in the continent did-and was it the right call?
RT UK has interviewed me in connection with the apparent divergence of opinion between the Scottish government and Boris Johnson on when to relax the Covid19 lockdown measures.
Official White House denials of involvement in a coup plot against Venezuela are in themselves worth nothing but contempt. With Washington’s decades-long record of blood-soaked dirty tricks in Latin America, inciting armed coups and aggression is what we should expect.
For the 75th time in a row Europe celebrates its liberation. There's no doubt Nazi Germany was beaten. But what are American troops doing on a continent that's supposed to be free and that's clearly not America?
I am sorry but I won’t be downloading Matt Hancock’s new NHS app.
Although hosting the International Criminal Court in The Hague, attacks from the US are left unanswered by the Dutch government. It's even turning a blind eye to the 'The Hague Invasion Act'.
Without the media exposure the decision deserved, the campaign to further the cause of equality and human rights for the Palestinian people received a massive boost in the UK’s highest court.
Boris’s appearance last night at the press conference was like a cross between Father Christmas and Daddy Warbucks out of Annie. He promised much, and a much brighter future but actually delivered sweet FA again.
The policy of freeing up bed space in NHS Hospitals and encouraging people not to burden the health service has had fatal consequences, and is likely in the long-run to claim more lives than COVID-19.
At his first Covid19 press briefing in weeks UK’s part-time Prime Minister, Boris Johnson should have announced his immediate resignation from office and issued a series of apologies.
All the American bluster blaming China for the Covid-19 pandemic is empty posturing. How do we know? Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just admitted it on public TV this week.
We should bring back national service. It would make us a stronger, more equal country.
At the beginning of the current Covid19 health crisis the Scottish Government announced a decision which was undoubtedly influenced by the powerful forces in society most committed to the preservation of the status quo, the current social order.
The harder they come, the harder they fall, as reggae singer Jimmy Cliff once put it. No nation has come harder than the United States with its history of relentless wars and mass destruction, nauseatingly dressed up with virtuous rhetoric about supposedly leading the free world.
Last night a few overpaid, over exposed and out of date celebs raised 27 million for the NHS or something, I wasn’t paying that much interest. A few days ago, one old soldier walked around his garden 100 times and raised 28 million pounds from the public.
The Cheltenham National Hunt Festival, which took place between 10th-13th March 2020, has been widely blamed for the spread of Coronavirus in the UK. That’s unfair as actual evidence is scant and focusing obsessively on racing lets the real culprits off the hook.
For the fifth Thursday night in a row, my wife, daughter and I stood in our front garden and joined the hundreds of others on our street and the millions across Scotland and the UK to applaud, bang pots and pans and compress car horns for the frontline health and care workers who face the dangerous battle against COVID-19 daily.
No wonder the US reacted with fury this week when Iran launched a satellite 465 kilometers into space. In baseball terms, the Iranians just hit the US ball out of the park.
President Donald Trump could end up starting a war – either a civil war at home or an international one with China. Such is this president’s demagogic knack for wriggling out of responsibility for problems. Blame others and to hell with consequences.
