Last quote by Kevin McKenna

Yes, the new Queensferry Crossing is magnificent, but the money it cost could have been far better spent. In “fair and equal” Scotland there is much that isn’t fair and equal. The phrase itself has been rendered almost meaningless by its obligatory presence in the rhetoric of each of our main left-of-centre political leaders. It is the liberal equivalent of Theresa May’s fatuous “strong and stable” expression.feedback

It’s surely understandable when political leaders, on beginning their ascent to high office, begin also to edge further away from reality. Little by little, their inner sanctum becomes more exclusive and comprises those whose entire careers and, therefore, livelihoods depend on keeping their leader happy and on course for the ultimate accolade.”.

Kevin McKenna quotes

Apr 15 2017 - Scottish independence

The liberal elite blames the church and alcohol yet does nothing themselves about deprivation. For several years, the Benedictine monks of Buckfast Abbey in Devon have rendered a free service to the elite who run Scotland. The monks, who have lived and worked in one of England’s most green and pleasant corners for around 1,000 years, manufacture Buckfast tonic wine, a sweet draught with a belligerent finish that leaves the palate thinking it has just done 15 rounds with Mike Tyson.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Scottish independence

Concentrating on fighting against independence has wiped out the party’s credibility. There have been many staging posts in Scottish Labour’s descent into political oblivion. The journey only really picked up speed, though, during the first independence referendum campaign, when it grotesquely misjudged the instincts of many of its core supporters who favoured self-determination while remaining loyal to the party.feedback

Mar 18 2017 - Scottish independence

The call for a second referendum has been triggered by the high-handed and disdainful attitude of the UK government. The uninitiated, on first encountering an SNP conference, might think that they were already stepping on to independent turf and that only the flourish of a civil servant’s pen was required to make it official. After two or three days of being held in the embrace of such boundless optimism you sometimes find yourself desperately seeking a dose of misery just to feel normal and Scottish once more; a Pink Floyd album perhaps, or a video of Great Scotland World Cup disasters.feedback
