In this issue, the Scottish Socialist Party’s John McAllion – former Labour MP and MSP – explains why he thinks the Scottish Labour Party is a shadow of its former self. This theme is also taken up by Labour for independence’s Allan Grogan, and SSP workplace organiser Richie Venton in his piece ‘Ructions after the referendum’.
In this issue, the SSP’s national workplace organiser Richie Venton asks why, when it comes to reporting the stance of trade unionists on the referendum, the picture is consciously distorted in the mainstream media by announcements of national union leaderships declaring their adherence to Better Together?
In this issue, published in time for May Day, Richie Venton explains why a Yes vote is the best option economically, politically and culturally for the working class in Scotland, and why Scottish independence – and the proper democracy it can bring – will be a beacon of hope for workers not only in the rest of the UK but also globally.
