Jordan Daly: Why we should back Kezia Dugdale and send Wings Over Scotland packing
LGBT campaigner and co-founder of the Tie campaign Jordan Daly explains why he is backing Kezia Dugdale in her row with Wings Over Scotland about homophobia
WHEN it comes to Wings Over Scotland and his controversies, I generally try to stay detached. He’s nothing more than a man with a blog, who has gained some notoriety, a bit of a strange cult following and whose online behaviour is akin to trolling. All in all, not someone I really want to discuss.
Jordan Daly: Scottish Labour, wake up and smell the Corbyn
CommonSpace columnist Jordan Daly says the 2017 UK hung parliament is a sign of a new politics thanks to Jeremy Corbyn, and Scottish Labour should take note
LET ME start by saying this: Jeremy Corbyn has defied all expectations and, fundamentally, he can now claim to have run a successful campaign.
In such a short period of time, he has emerged from the shadows as a man whom "we hardly ever saw" - as my grandad articulated yesterday - to become the serene voice of socialist ideals on a mainstream platform.
Jordan Daly: Scotland needs to settle indyref once and for all so we can get back to politics
Student and political campaigner Jordan Daly says Scotland needs another independence referendum to end the limbo of constitutional politics
THE council elections have concluded and, alas, the constitutional question strikes again.
The SNP emerged as the clear winner in yet another crucial moment in Scottish political history. The Greens also performed well, gaining five seats - but the biggest outcome is the performance of the Tories, who won 276 seats across the country.
Jordan Daly: Why parliament may not be the best place for Scotland's pro-indy left
Activist Jordan Daly says Scotland's radical left should focus on playing to its strengths
WELL, that's the election out of the way. It's interesting, because what was essentially quite a dull and uninspiring campaign (my personal highlight, for example, was Willie Rennie's encounter with the volcano slide) has certainly given us an awful lot to consider with it's conclusion.
Jordan Daly: Paris and the hypocrisy within humanity
Campaigner Jordan Daly says the West must examine how far its compassion stretches
I'M sat in a bar as I'm writing this, and across from me a group of men are discussing the recent attacks in Paris.
They're emphasising how disgusted they are. I've only been here for 10 minutes and I've already heard how they think that this "terrorist crap" is getting to a point where "enough is enough".
According to them, we should be intervening and stepping up our military operations to "wipe the bastards out before they attack us".
Jordan Daly: Why the rise of the left is vitally important for Scotland's future
Campaigner Jordan Daly argues that the launch of a new left-wing alliance will ensure Scotland doesn't become unhealthily dominated by one party
THE referendum on Scottish independence was the catalyst for a tidal wave of enlightenment that transformed the country's political climate; suddenly, those who once found political arguments dull and difficult to comprehend were debating with their peers, sticking posters on their windows and rallying against the broken neoliberal agenda that continues to underpin and steer the Tory-driven British establishment.
