I’m an atheist. Well no, that’s not strictly true. Some atheists can be a bit shouty and Richard Dawkinsish. I used to be an atheist when I was young, mainly because I enjoyed winding up the priest and the RE teacher when I was at Catholic school. I’ve mellowed a lot now and converted to apatheism, which is the most laid back religion. Apatheism means you don’t know if there’s a god but can’t be bothered enough with religion to give a toss anyway.

There’s no formal conversion process when you become an apatheist, it just happens one day when you overhear people arguing about religion and realise that you’d far rather do some ironing. And I really hate ironing. Ironing is possibly the only thing in the universe more tedious than the nexus between fitba and religion and having to listen to Celtic and Rangers fans arguing about the…

Can Scotland get a special Brexit deal? Can Boris Johnson survive the Brexit process without pissing off a major European country? Can the adolescent supporters of the alt-right ever actually get laid, and will they ever realise that masturbating in front of internet photos of Pepe the Frog doesn’t really count as a sexual encounter? Can Tory MSP Adam Tomkins get through an entire week without Tweeting anything else as stupid as his thought that companies shouldn’t pay tax because they don’t get a vote? Will the British state stop driving Scotland into a second independence referendum? These are questions to which there is no firm and definitive answer, except we all know that the answer to each is “probably not”.

Phil the Hamster was in Scotland this week to tell us why … Well to be honest it wasn’t exactly clear what he was here to tell us, seeing…

At long last we finally know what the hitherto meaningless phrase Brexit means Brexit means. Thanks to some Tory aide who wandered out into Downing Street clutching some briefing notes which were accidentally, or possibly accidentally on purpose, on show, the world has discovered that what we all thought all along is actually true. Brexit means Brexit means that the British government wants to have its cake and eat it, and that the refusal of Theresa May to reveal her strategy is indeed because she doesn’t want to weaken her position during negotiations. But that’s only because her negotiating position would be seriously weakened if it became known that she doesn’t actually have a strategy at all.

It’s embarrassingly obvious now that not only does the Conservative government not have a strategy for Brexit, but some of its leading figures don’t even have a clear idea of how the European…

Pride's Purge

The new UKIP leadership were ALL either failed Tory candidates or former Conservatives who failed to even become candidates.

UKIP’s new leader Paul Nuttall stood for the Tories in 2002 – and failed:

tory-ukip-nuttall

The chairman of the party Paul Oakden also stood – and failed – as a Tory candidate before he joined UKIP:

oakden-ukip-tory

The moneybags behind the party – millionaire Arron Banks – was once a Conservative Party backer too – before he realised senior Tories didn’t even know who he was and so decided to give his cash to Nigel Farage instead.

Not only that, but UKIP’s new deputy leader, Peter Whittle, used to be a regular contributor to influential Tory mouthpiece ConservativeHome before he obviously realised he wasn’t posh enough for the Tories to become a candidate and scuttled over to UKIP  to become one for Nigel Farage.

And, of course, we already know UKIP’s new leader Paul…
