A Greek Tragedy
  Michael St.Mark 2014

There seems something in the Greek psyche that touches great depths of sadness and melancholia,
possibly
relating to a time-honoured culture that traditionally integrates deep analytical  and philosophical
thought that makes heroic attempts at resolution of many of life’s all too often intractable problems.

Scottish Referendum Special – Taking a News Stand.

Re-post from 2011 in relation to the Scottish Independence referendum and the No campaign’s months-long daily use of scaremongering headlines based largely on exaggeration and lies and pushed to the public through the Westminster government’s corporate friends who control the hard press media and BBC /Sky.
Nick Robinson, the BBC’s political commentator a case in point; who was caught out attempting to deliberately smear Alex Salmond in cahoots with his editor who cut the video before the Scottish first minister replied – and putting the piece to air claiming he hadn’t answered the point.
