Last quote by Kevin McKenna

A satellite inventory of UK land use finds that, while Britons pack into the cities, the wild and open spaces are grossly underused. One of the most interesting news items of the week was buried in the BBC’s Thursday night news schedule. It was a profound and meaningful tale, yet the BBC dressed it up as a quaint curiosity. The story’s top line was about the different types of land components that make up Britain. It seems that as well as making a rubbish tip of outer space and vandalising blameless planets such as Mars, some of our satellites have been taking high-definition pictures of the UK.feedback

Kevin McKenna quotes

Jun 17 2017 - Scottish independence

Ignore the carpers, JK Rowling and Billy Connolly thoroughly deserve their honours. In a perjink Glasgow wine bar some years ago, a spirited discussion about Professor Sir Tom Devine’s contribution to Scotland almost led to violence. This being the city’s West End, the aggro reached its zenith with the following parting shot: “I’ll be bringing this to the attention of the person who edits the letters page in the Herald.” At this, a hush descended on our unruly little gathering for, as we knew full well, in this neighbourhood such a threat is only uttered in extremis.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - Labour Party

After 10 ineffective years in power, the first minister should heed the success of the Labour party leader. On the eve of an election when you had dared to hope that compassion might prevail over greed, a reality check was provided by the BBC. Jeremy Corbyn had just finished addressing his 90th rally in a seven-week campaign and, for a few hours, we even began to wonder how Britain might be under a Labour government led by him.feedback

May 20 2017 - Obesity

Children should be encouraged to walk to school to help us tackle the childhood obesity problem. It was surely only a matter of time – that being a commodity Doctor Who possesses in abundance – before he would get to encounter space zombies on his intergalactic travels. Thus in last week’s episode we saw Peter Capaldi putting the boot into a colony of the intergalactic undead and emerge with nary a ruffle of his big hair and long coat.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Labour Party

Years of bad management and lack of vision have left the SNP and Tories poised to expunge the left from north of the border. No other city in the UK has embodied the success and aspirations of the Labour movement more than Glasgow. And now, as Labour faces up to the reality of spending a generation in the political wilderness, no city has come to epitomise the party’s decline more than this one. At Westminster, Jeremy Corbyn is facing a reckoning; in Glasgow, the party he leads is contemplating an apocalypse.feedback

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
