Empowering the Disabled

Empowering the Disabled

By Richard Harris, Parliament Street Disabilities Spokesman Margaret Thatcher once said: “I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work. That is the recipe.

It’s time for conservatives to reclaim feminism

It’s time for conservatives to reclaim feminism

Where now for Scotland’s Unionist parties part 2: Next steps for Unionism in Scotland

So in summary I see the most potential for gains for the Unionist movement in the Highlands (Lib Dem led), North East, Mid Scotland (Conservative led), and if the Labour party can get their act together, potentially in Central Scotland and maybe one Glasgow seat.

Where now for Scotland’s Unionist parties part 1: Where we stand after May 5th

Unionist parties cannot now rest on their laurels after a good set of results in Scotland for the Lib Dems and a great set of results for the Conservatives, there is much more work to do to keep separatism at bay.

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

At 89 years of age, and after so many decades of dedicated, loyal service to our country and her people, one would think that the magnificent Queen Elizabeth II would be respected and protected by our national media.
